Props for this recommendation. I just finished reading it. The writing is a little too much like a War College paper and he made a few errors, but his research and facts are amazing. It is well worth reading.Bloody Sixteen: The USS Oriskany and Air Wing 16 during the Vietnam War
By Peter “Booger” Fey.
Booger is a Prowler guy who I overlapped with in Fallon. He worked on this book for a long time and it is a good read. I can’t even fathom the optempo those guys went through. The loss of life and aircraft is just staggering no matter how many times you hear it. Get in the books and be better than the enemy and hope

Reading it now - cool perspective to hear the origins of the school from the horse's mouth.Anyone read the new TOPGUN history book?
I’m sure it has been mentioned, but in the same vein I’d say HR McMaster’s Dereliction of Duty is required reading. Will check this one out.Rereading Toland's The Rising Sun: The Decline and Fall of the Japanese Empire, 1936-1945. Such a great book and a genuinely good look at how governments fail their people and willingly stumble into war.
I think you'll get a wide array of opinions on that matter, but that's not what I'm talking about. He just made a speech Wednesday that some have viewed as somewhat... ironic.Hardly a fair comment. McMaster stood his ground against Trump and his team hard on many issues and in the end it cost him his job.
