I personally believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and that deficit spending is sustainable forever. We really do need more Admirals in the Navy than ships and that millions of more poor immigrants will jump start the economy.

Over the Beach is a nice read Nothing to deep or detailed, but enjoyable.

Not the air war but Matterhorn is an outstanding novel. It's fiction but I find myself reading it at least once a year. I highly recommend it.

Just to resurrect this old thread...

I've just finished Flying Black Ponies, a history of VAL-4, Navy light attack squadron flying ov10 Broncos in the Mekong delta.

In it's short 3 year existence the ponies were particularly effective and the book is full of details and anecdotes rather than one man's story. What the unit did as the US began to withdraw is particularly well told and paints a picture of the ARVN at odds with usual perceptions.

Highly recommended.
