This is a short book, author Anthony Tambini had a lot of personal history working with the F-5 as a technical rep for the South Vietnam Air Force. He admits his love of the aircraft and you can see why. A supersonic, easy to maintain, cheap airplane that could carry a lot of bombs and be a good fighter? Built by the US? Yup.
The F-5 saw its combat debut in Vietnam, did very well there. Rugged, reliable it was even used at Top Gun schools because it flew a lot like the Mig-21. The best part about this book is the author's experience with the South Vietnam air force and how/where this plane flew. There are some line drawings and charts/data/statistics.
The photos are all B&W and small. This is not a book for modelers, but anyone interested in this very effective jet fighter/bomber's operational history. Warbird Tech has a book in its series that is about the same price, has color and is a bigger book.
