Clashes: Air Combat Over North Vietnam, 1965-1972 Marshall L. Michell III

Awesome, technical, analytical (ie non-narrative), amazing book.

Recent got 100 Missions North: A Fighter Pilot's Story of the Vietnam War from a local library and it was quite good.

I also liked Phantom Over Vietnam.

I enjoyed Rasimus' 2nd book on his Phantom Tour - Palace Cobra I think it was entitled.

"Alpha Strike Vietnam," by Jeffrey Levinson covers Navy ops from '64 to '73. There are 30+ chapters, and each chapter recounts the experiences of a different attack pilot.

"Over the Beach," by Zalin Grant, goes the other way, it is a look at ONE squadron, VF-162. Grant is a journalist, but does a good job getting the stories from the surviving -162 pilots, who also talk quite a bit about the other squadrons that flew off their ship, USS Oriskany.
