Book Review: Thud Ridge by Jack Broughton
This book forced me to do something I haven't done since I was 14 and was forced to read The Great Gatsby: I could not finish it.
I know that in the lore of the fighter jock community they like to say that "If you aint a fighter pilot, you ain't s***" but to basically tell the reader from the get go that you ain't it and dumber too goes a bit too much, specially when the rest of the book (as far as I had the patience to read) is nothing but a long litany of whinning and complaining interrupted by unbearable boring descriptions of missions over North Vietnam. I was halfway through the book and I didn't feel I was learning a damn thing.
