Jets at War: 1950-2011 offers a comprehensive look at the critical role jet aircraft played during the Korean, Vietnam, Gulf, and Afghanistan wars. With veteran interviews, dramatic combat footage, and expert commentary featuring legendary fighter pilot and former Air Force Chief of Staff General Merrill (Tony) McPeak, this DVD set is a must for any military history enthusiast! Disc 1: Jets Over Korea - Takes US through the desperate early days of the Korean War, when air power alone kept the North Koreans from driving UN Forces into the sea. Propeller-driven planes relinquished their role to a new generation of faster, jet-powered fighters such as the Soviet MiG-15 Fagot and the legendary F-86 Sabre. Disc 2: Jets Over Vietnam - the air war in Vietnam was unlike any other. It pitted the full might of the world's greatest military power against an elusive, highly motivated enemy. The air war provided the superpowers with the opportunity to put their best technology and weapons systems into the sky for the ultimate test in air combat. Disc 3: Jets Over the Gulf & Afghanistan - Explores the dawn of the age of high-tech air war. For the first time in military history, stealth, networked air control, and precision guided munitions interacted on the battle field; altering the arena of air combat in an unprecedented way. The air war in Afghanistan (2001-2011) and the Second Gulf War (2003-2011) would see a steady expansion in the deployment of stealth aircraft and network centric air warfare.
