Those '67 Blues is an enlightening action novel of U.S. naval aviators aboard an aircraft carrier on Yankee Station during
the Vietnam War. Sortie rates and aircraft losses trended strongly upward through the autumn months of 1967. Daily,
the Pentagon sent major multi-aircraft “Alpha” strikes into the “Iron Triangle” delineated
by Hanoi, Haiphong, and Nam Dinh. Navy all-weather A-6s went in low and alone at night. This is a
day-by-day account of those missions and the men who flew them during two weeks of that fiery autumn.
Feel the tension build
in the cockpit of an A-6 Intruder as it homes in on a well-defended target, and the shivering adrenalin release that comes
hours after a harrowing mission. Experience the terror as a SAM surface-to-air missile tracks its target—you. Live the
fear of being shot down, hunted, and then tortured by the North Vietnamese.
aviator’s wives and children back home live through fears and problems of their own during a war that few people understand
and many despise.
Review by the Association
of Naval Aviation, published in the Fall Edition of Wings of Gold Magazine
‘This is a story about the aviators who went in harms way big time. ‘At
night,’ writes Bryans, ‘Navy all-weather A-6 Intruders went in low and alone.’ A
brief excerpt: ‘The SAM that hit their A-6 right after weapons release knocked out everything electrical, set the port
engine on fire, and caused the plane to shake like a dice cup.’ Bryans knows his subject. He flew A-6s
during the war earning a Silver Star and DFC, and commanded VA-35 aboard USS Nimitz.’
‘Those ’67 Blues is on the level of ‘Flight
of the Intruder’ and the ‘Bridges of Toko Ri’. I now have 3 favorite
books about our navy at war.’
by John (Toy) Mittell, CDR USN (RET)
‘Bryans captures the tableau
of the flight deck as only could be written by one who has seen it from the cockpit. ’
