Cadillac Flight is another excellent novel by Marshall Harrison, this time about jet fighter pilots based in Thailand and flying missions over North Vietnam and Laos. Again, Mr. Harrison takes the reader right into the cockpit, to experience the difficulties of formation flying, air-to-air refueling, and making bombing runs over heavilly-defended enemy territory. You feel every "G". These pilots lived in much greater comfort than the FACs in Vietnam, but still primitive by civilian US standards.

Thud Ridge remains the classic non-fiction work on the F-105 Thunderchief "Thud" air bombing campaigns over North Vietnam. Cadillac Flight was an enjoyable, straightforward novel of that dangerous part of the air war. The feel of attrition, hopelessness in the face of ridiculous rules and the 100 missions that made up a tour of duty come across quite well. It's a quick read, with obvious good guys, gruff good guys, and bad guys, but also a surprisingly tolerant view of the enemy as actual people rather than "gooks."

This is one of the best novels regarding the vietnam air war that I have ever read. It is realistic, written by a person who has been there. I have read and enjoyed all the books written by Harrison. It is a shame that he is gone now.

Bought the book for my husband who is retired military. He loves the book, laughs at a lot of the realistic personalities and hijinx. Book was in excellent condition.

Husband is avid reader, seemed to thoroughly enjoy this book. He's a huge aviation fan and this seemed to be right up his alley.

Overall a neat and enjoyable book. Although lots of action by someone who was there, Harrison takes some literary license to, I guess, make the book more colorful to the unwashed masses. I had to grimace as I waded thru some of those radio calls that the combat pilots would never have made. (I have two SEA combat tours.) And Atolls, a heat seeking missile, will not see and lock on to a target if fired in the soup, as the Viet ace does. There are many little problems like this, such as the flight going to route pack one from Takhli but, somehow, flying way north over the PDJ in northern Laos on the way to the southern part of North Vietnam. I liked his cast of characters and the reader definitely gets a feel for what it was like flying over North Vietnam.

Once you start this book, it will be hard to do anything else until you finish. Gripping, moving account of the Thud airstrikes over NVN. Newbies to the Vietnam war will feel admiration for the pilots, and anger toward the war leadership that put politics over lives.
Although Harrison develops his charactors carefully, the reader is pulled rapidly through the unfolding story with its tragedies and triumphs and - surprises.
If you can find the book, get it. But make sure you have a clear couple of days to get through it.
It may be a novel but it reads as a real book for the Air Force over North Viet Nam.
