The authors are not good historians. They padded the first half of the story with some many historical inaccuracies, I was yelling at the book, one example was calling a C47 a Globemaster!
There were so many more I couldn't believe it. The narrator was also infuriating. MIG alley in Korea was narrated as "M" "I" "G" alley..............
A rehash of John Kennedy PT105 experience was unneeded. The authors try to put them selves in Kennedy's' head to draw parallels between PT105 and the Missile crisis. To much speculation on how Kennedy might have felt.
That being said, the 1/2 half of the book about the Missile Crisis was informative. It was covered from both USSR and USA sides in a fair "timeline" fashion.
Note to the authors: Please the next time you write about aviation history during 30's-50's please have your facts checked by an aviation historian. Then I won't have to yell at the narrator!
The written content was good. It did tend to wander a bit, but flowed nicely, and kept my interest. The narrator has a remarkable voice, but the performance was strewn with mis-pronunciations, which spoiled an otherwise good performance!
