Author Whitcomb looks at the aircraft of the Cold War with the eye of a pilot and the mind of one of the most respected authorities in his native Canada on the Avro Arrow. Here he presents his research about the stormy politics amongst Canada, the US and the UK about what aircraft to design, build and fly. As a Canadian Air Force pilot with a personal stake in the Avro Arrow, he engages in speculation about what could have been if his favorite aircraft had not been sacrificed to political expediency and bad intelligence. He also describes how competition in technology, computerization and telemetry affected the exercise in inertia that was the Cold War. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
