James P. Stevenson (au). Provides a developmental history of the F-18 Hornet from drawing board to Desert Storm. It is the story of a multi-billion-dollar aircraft design war between those officers who insist that our interests will be protected best by sophisticated aircraft, even if we can afford fewer of them, & a group known as the “Fighter Mafia,” who claim that larger numbers have always won in warfare even if each one is less sophisticated. This highly readable study takes the reader into the Pentagon’s corridors of power, where test results are distorted, history rewritten, & requirements changed to match aircraft performance, & the public’s trust & treasure squandered.
