Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dynamite -- the true story of one of America's crown jewels." 
Tom Clancy

"Thoroughly engrossing."
Los Angeles Times

From the Back Cover

Skunk Works is the true story, told for the first time, of America's most secret and successful aerospace operation. As recounted by Ben Rich, the operation's brilliant boss for nearly two decades, the story of Lockheed's legendary Skunk Works is a high-stakes drama of cold war confrontations and Gulf War air combat, of extraordinary feats of engineering and human achievement against fantastic odds.
