Promotional Information

The F-105's success against MiGs - the aircraft was credited 27.5 examples shot down - is a testament to the jet's versatility and the skill of the pilots involved. It is also a relatively little-known aspect of the Vietnam War.

He has written eight previous Osprey titles and co-authored two others, with two of the latter on the F-105. Jim Laurier is a native of New England, growing up in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. He has been drawing since he could hold a pencil and throughout his life he has worked in many mediums creating artwork on a variety of subjects. He has worked on the Osprey Aviation list since 2000, and in that time he has produced some of the finest artwork seen in these volumes. He has specialised in aircraft of the Vietnam War period.

Reviews

"Peter Davies superbly summarizes this MiG-killing record in Osprey'sF-105 Thunderchief MiG Killers of the Vietnam War. Beginning with a chapter dedicated to the Thunderchief's development and early operational history, subsequent sections in Davies' instructive narrative interweave data on F-105 pilots' training and tactics with dramatic descriptions of MiG battles. Decidedly recommended." --Rachel E. Veres, www.cybermodeler.com
