The Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet & EA-18G Growler: A Developmental and Operational History

Great book, thoroughly enjoying it so far. It’s much larger than I had anticipated (and very well worth the price!) and filled with countless information from various squadrons. Definitely pick it up if you have even the slightest interest in any of the [super] hornet/growler models!

Harnessing the Sky

A well written book about the evolution of US Naval aircraft evolution from biplanes to jet aircraft. I had no idea how unprepared the country and Navy were to compete and win World War II. It tells a fascinating story of how an individual with a love of the sea and air could make such a difference in helping the country quickly and successfully respond to the military threat through teamwork, leadership and attention to detail.

Declared Hostile

One of those books you start reading and quickly find yourself forgoing things like: bathing, sleep, food. Seriously, a “page turner” for me and I was bummed out when I finished it.

Boyd: The Fighter Pilot Who Changed the Art of War

A great book!!!! A must read if you are interested in how the military industrial complex works. If you never understood why the DOD has constant cost overruns on its projects this book will clear it up for you. Additionally, a little known fact, John Boyd developed the battle plan for the Gulf War using his OODA Loop strategy.
