“If you like being strapped into a fighter cockpit and churning and burning in afterburner (or reheat as the Brits call it), you'll love Squadron Leader Michael Napier's story! A great read, it takes you on a journey from youth, through training, and into the lethality of combat ops over the skies of Iraq. I found myself gripped by the details of squadron life, of insights into the complexities of functioning in a coalition of different air forces in a foreign land, and of the gut fear of first combat. Napier's recount of his life and times is a must read for anybody with a passion for fast flying and crushing g-forces.” Mike Mullane, NASA Astronaut (Ret.),Col., USAF (Ret), Author: Riding Rockets, Outrageous Tales of a Space Shuttle Astronaut.Mike Mullane, NASA Astronaut (Ret.),Col., USAF (Ret), Author: Riding Rockets, Outrageous Tales of a Space Shuttle Astronaut.
