Allow me to offer some suggestions for that reading. :classic_smile: I have to say that I find the Air War over Korea fascinating.

Usually when someone mentions the Korean Air War most foks immediatley think Sabre's v MiG's. If that's so, a good balance of claim and counterclaim are the following.

Makes me want to fire up my MiG-15 and Sabre again...  Lately, I've been practicing with the Turkey and F-5, prepping for the F-4...  🙂

A broader view of the air conflict and it's impact on the ground war can be found here.
I especially recommend Robert jacksons book, as it details total losses suffered by the USAF and USn in the conflict.
