"[This] A-4 titles does more than justice to this most impressive of combat aircraft. Peter Mersky’s is a nother of those names whose appearance on a book cover immediately inspires confidence in its contents and this volume is no exception…Mersky has fone a very fine job indeed of documenting the often harrowing story of the A-4 in Vietnam. His exhaustive coverage details both Marine Corps and Navy operations, again using first-hand accounts to lend weight to the account." -Paul Eden, Scale Aircraft Modeling (Vol 4, No 4, June 2008)

"Peter Mersky has put together tons of information of the planes, pilots, deployments, accomplishments and losses…eight chapters of riveting reading, focused on the jet’s most intense period of action, from the Gulf of Tonkin confrontation to the final missions in 1973." -CRASH Casey, The Marine Corps Aviation Association (March 2008)

"There were high hopes for the latest in the Osprey Combat Aircraft series… The hopes were met. Peter Mersky wrote an outstanding book that will be on the must-have list of all A-4 fans." -A-4 Skyhawk Association’s Quarterly Magazine

"In this endeavor Peter Mersky has produced a superlative and readable volume enlivened by terrific first-person accounts which aptly capture the drama of aerial warfare, especially when it involved deadly opposition from enemy ground fire and surface to air missiles… There is an abundance of courageous Naval Aviators who manned Skyhawks during the protracted hostilities in Southeast Asia. This book constitutes a special salute to them and the A-4s they flew in the line of fire. Strongly recommended!" -Association of Naval Aviation (Fall 2007)

"…brought back a few memories for this reviewer and makes for a ‘must have’ read; one that I know you will find as engrossing as I did." -Scott Van Aken, (May 2007)
