Lords of the Sky by Dan Hampton

USA - -(Ammoland.com)- You may remember Dan Hampton from his New York Times bestselling book, Viper Pilot.

Or you may know him as the retired USAF F-16 legend who flew 151 combat missions during his 20 years in the USAF and the recipient of four Distinguished Flying Crosses with Valor, a Purple Heart, eight Air Medals with Valor, five Meritorious Service Medals, and numerous other citations.

With his new book, Lords of the Sky (on sale June 24th, http://tiny.cc/30pxgx ), Dan offers the first comprehensive popular history of combat aviation—a unique, entertaining, and action-packed look at the aces of the air and their machines, from the Red Baron and his triplane in World War I to today’s technologically expert flying warriors in supersonic jets.

Dan goes back 100 years to tell the extraordinary story of the most famous fighter planes and the brave and daring heroes who made them legend.

Drawing on his expertise, Hampton shines a spotlight on the pioneers who have ruled the air from World War I through the Cold War to today.

He provides unique insight into gutsy pioneers such as Manfred von Richthofen and his red triplane, and the flyboys in the iconic P51 Mustang who faced the Nazi Lufwaffe. Here, too, is a thoughtful look at modern air warriors, including his own exploits in the high-tech f-16 Falcon. Interwoven throughout this sweeping narrative history is Hampton’s personal account of traveling the world to find these storied aircraft.

Strapping himself into the cockpit of such planes, he shares the thrill and experience of flying each. Exhilarating, told in his acclaimed high-octane style, Lords of the Sky is a fresh look at the development of aviation for history and military buffs alike.
