“This is a wonderful book—capturing an insider’s look at the elite and mysterious world of TOPGUN, that coliseum for the daredevils of the US Naval Aviation. It’s written by a fabulous F-14 fighter-wing Commander. Too modest, but real heavy on our unbreakable codes of Honesty, Integrity, Courage, and Honor. What a read!”
