    Recently I have become more and more interested in reading on the Korean Air War and was looking for recommendations on books to read. Not looking for highly technical books but more of Autobiagraphical/Biographical books on Fighter pilots and such.
    So far I have read "The Hunters" but am looking for other good books on the subject, any other suggestions?

    For something abit different, try "The forgotten few" by Doug Hurst. A great read detailing the history of 77sqn RAAF, first flying Mustangs and later Meteors in Korea.
