Annotation At the height of the Cold War, America's most elite aviators bravely volunteered for a top secret program called Wild Weasel I. Their mission was to counter the Soviet SA-2 surface-to-air missile (SAM) which were blowing USAF planes out of the skies over Vietnam. Half the pilots never returned. All became legends. Based on unprecedented firsthand interviews with veterans and previously unseen personal papers and declassified documents from both sides of the conflict. Strong language and violence.
