This book provides you with the history of its development and its various important operational uses. But more interestingly, it puts you on the front lines of war see firsthand how a fighter pilot un-jams and re-cocks a wing-mounted machine gun. You get to witness through the author's own personal experiences of how he used the 'fifty' during the Vietnam War. He brings to the life the devastating effects of an armor-piercing round fired from a Humvee.
