Fast Eddie Tells It Like It Was
What's it like to fight an unwinnable war in the air? How hard is the F-4 Phantom to fly? How does Mach 2 feel? What do you do when the Bad Guys are shooting at you? In this Amazon bestseller, Lt/Col Ed Fast Eddie Cobleigh shares his experiences in a deeply personal account of a fighter pilot's life, one filled with moral ambiguities and military absurdities offset by the absolute thrills of flying a fighter plane. Using well-crafted prose to put you in the Phantom's cockpit, Cobleigh recounts the tragic loss of his wingman, life at his base in exotic Thailand, the need to trust his reflexes, eyesight, aggressiveness, and his survival instincts in the heat of combat. This is a unique look into a combat fighter pilot's mind. Nothing is held back. It's all here, the highs and lows of 375 combat missions, the dangers of adrenaline addiction, and ultimately, the return.
