AOT #483: Dan Hampton Podcasts The Hunter Killers
Lieutenant Colonel (Ret.) Dan Hampton, the author of the national bestsellers Viper Pilot and Lords of the Sky, as well as a novel, The Mercenary, discusses his new book The Hunter Killers: The Extraordinary Story of the First Wild Weasels, the Band of Maverick Aviators Who Flew the Most Dangerous Missions of the Vietnam War. Using first-hand accounts, declassified documents from both sides of the conflict, and featuring unpublished photographs, The Hunter Killers takes readers into the skies, and up close to the bloody duels that left half the Weasels dead or captured. At its center are the men who risked everything to fight the most dangerous anti-aircraft weapons the world had seen.
