Night Fighters Over Korea

ORourke. One mans account of a period of naval combat that is little-known. The  night skies over Korea were home to a few brave warriors of Composite Squadron 4 (VC-4) and Marine Night Fighter Squadron 513 (VMFN-513). Operations with Douglas  F-3D Skynights from carriers often found the night more of an adversary than the enemy. A colorful book written with a touch of blarney and a good deal of action. 210 pgs., illustrations, 6"x 9", hdbd.
