Synopsis:

Palace Cobra picks up where Ed Rasimus's critically acclaimed When Thunder Rolled left off. Now he's flying the F-4 Phantom and the attitude is still there.
In the waning days of the Vietnam War, Rasimus and his fellow pilots were determined that they were not going be the last to die in a conflict their country had abandoned. They were young fighter pilots fresh from training and experienced aviators who came back to the war again and again, not for patriotism, but for the adrenaline rush of combat. From the bathhouses and barrooms to the prison camps of North Vietnam, this is a gripping combat memoir by a veteran fighter pilot who experienced it all.
The wry cynicism of a combat aviator will give readers insights into the Vietnam experience that haven't been available before, and the heart-stopping action will keep readers turning the pages all night.

From the Back Cover: "Picking up ""where his acclaimed" When Thunder Rolled" left off, "Palace Cobra "is the story of Ed Rasimus's return to Vietnam to fight a war that many Americans tried to forget "
"RASIMUS IS THE REAL THING."?Tom "Bear" Wilson, author of "Termite Hill"""
When F-105 pilot Ed Rasimus completed his 100 missions over Vietnam, he returned stateside to a normal life: sitting at a desk and teaching student pilots. Two years later, he volunteered to go for a second tour of duty. Determined not to die in a losing cause, and relentlessly searching for that next adrenaline rush, Rasimus and the other F-4 Phantom pilots continued the ferocious air war in the North--dodging SAMs and gunning for MiGs--and routinely cheated death.
"BRILLIANT WRITING THAT COULD ONLY BE DONE BY AN INTELLIGENT PILOT WHO WAS THERE."--Walter Boyne, author of "Operation Iraqi Freedom"
When America finally got serious about ending the war, Rasimus and the other pilots put it all on the line, pounding Hanoi with everything they had, and flying above POW camps to let the troops know they were not alone. Gripping, earnest, and unforgettable, Rasimus's combat memoir is, in the end, a heartfelt tribute to those who never made it back.
"READ, THINK, AND BE PROUD AND GRATEFUL THAT YOUR NATION PRODUCES MEN LIKE THESE."--Robin Olds, Brigadier General (Ret.), USAF
