Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0983316015, Paperback)

General Merrill A. Tony McPeak was the 14th chief of staff of the US Air Force. HANGAR FLYING is a memoir of his early service in fighter squadrons, a story about military flying in the tumultuous 1960s. The book may be regarded as a primary source for understanding what happened in front-line aviation units when the Berlin Wall went up, during the Bay of Pigs Invasion or the Cuban missile crisis, at the height of our presence in South Vietnam, or just day-to-day during the long facedown with the Soviet Union. Surely only a handful of military officers had a ringside seat for so much of the Cold War, in so many of its settings.

HANGAR FLYING is the first book of a three-volume series. The second title will take General McPeak through the 1970s and 80s, during which he served in a series of increasingly important staff and command positions and rose to four-star rank. The final volume will cover his four-year period as the Air Force's 14th chief of staff.
