Dead Men Flying

None of us will survive.


The arithmetic was inescapable. The squadron started with twelve A-4E Skyhawks and twenty-two pilots. After seven days, it had eight aircraft and nineteen pilots. He had over two hundred days to go. He would never see home again.

Dead Men Flying is an honest, unflinching account of how Mike, the college kid, became a warrior called “Mule.”

  • "I cannot recall a book that I have read that really touched me as this one. As a soul wrenching one that I have ever read."

  • "One of the best first person accounts of Vietnam air combat I've read. I've been a military history buff for 40+years, and have read hundreds/thousands of non-fiction books. This is one of the best."

  • "A MUST READ!"
