"We Were Crewdogs - The Vietnam Collection"

Released in September of 2008, this is a collection of reprints of Vietnam, Arc Light, Bulletshot, Guam, and U-Tapao stories, collected from the first four volumes of "We Were Crewdogs" all together in one book that just covers the war stories from this era. Even though most (but not all) of these stories have previously appeared in the other volumes, this is the definative collection of just Vietnam War stories as told by the B-52 crewdogs who lived them. This collection was created and released at the Arc Light/Young Tiger Reunion in Branson, Missouri in September of 2008 and now available for general purchase. If you are only interested in this area of operation, then this is the book for you.

263 pages with 53 stories and several never printed photographs.
