The latest addition to Osprey's Combat Aircraft series, F-105 Thunderchief Units of the Vietnam War, will probably leave U.S. Air Force veterans wondering why it took so long... Loaded with firsthand accounts by the pilots-and even a few from some of their MiG adversaries-and supplementing its scores of photographs with 27 color profiles, this book is an important addition for any student of the air war.

F-105 Thunderchief Units of the Vietnam War explores the crucial importance of the Thunderchief, deemed the 'Thud' by many of its crews, in the Rolling Thunder campaign...

The colorful artwork will appeal to aviation enthusiasts and modelers alike. Illustrations cover the variety of natural metal and camouflage schemes with different codes and nose-art.
