{detailed description}An illustrated narrative of the most intense dawn-to-dark aerial action in the Vietnam War.
Rarely has a work conveyed so viscerally the sheer excitement of air-to-air battle: in One Day in a Long War, internationally respected historians Jeffrey Ethell and Alfred Price chronicle May 10, 1972, the launch day of ''Linebacker" - a highly classified, huge-scale navy and air force surprise operation resuming U.S. bomber raids on North Vietnam.
One Day in a Long War records firsthand accounts of almost 100 eyewitnesses, analyses cockpit voice recordings, and employs 65 photographs plus maps, drawings and official documents, many only now declassified. During May 10 an elite corps of American fighter pilots - many of them first-generation "Top Gun" graduates - flew more than 330 sorties against major transportation centres around Hanoi and Haiphong. But the Vietnamese fought back with 93 ground-to-air missiles and forty MIG fighters. May 10 will be remembered as the most intensive air combat day in Vietnam, yet its decisive effect is still being debated. Here, indeed, is a definitive reconstruction of the white heat of battle in the sky.
