The author recounts some of the one hundred missions he flew in Vietnam, and describes the daily life of an American fighter pilot

100 Missions North is a harrowing personal account of the extraordinarily dangerous missions the author and his comrades flew in F-105 Thunderchiefs over North Vietnam in 1966-67. At that time, American airmen were faced with unprecedented defenses and the highest pilot loss rate - over 25 percent - since the early days of the U.S. strategic bombing of Europe during World War II.
This thrilling book tells what it was like to muster the courage to climb into the cockpit, day after day, as you watched your comrades fall one by one - and how the pilots fought back. You'll join Major Bell on his first flight "downtown," on a Medal of Honor bombing strike, and on his last, triumphant 100th mission. You'll see men sustained by faith in each other and joined by the unique bonds of combat overcome anxiety, fear, and even terror to achieve common goals. More than a gripping memoir of aerial warfare, 100 Missions North is a tribute to the men who fought against great odds in the skies over North Vietnam.
