Topgun - The Legacy

‘TOPGUN - The Legacy’ covers the full history of the Navy Fighter Weapons School, more commonly known as TOPGUN. Many books and articles have provided insights from an individual's tours at the school or from brief interview visits, but none provide a full history or as complete of a discussion of TOPGUN's programmes, culture, and accomplishments.

‘The Legacy’ opens by discussing the common historical problem faced by many militaries across the world – learning tactics, forgetting or dismissing tactics and lessons learned, and relearning during war at substantial cost. It also traces the history of air combat and what the US military has done over the years regarding training and retaining lessons learned. ‘The Legacy’ then covers the USAF and US Navy involvement in Vietnam and the founding of TOPGUN in 1968. After that, each decade is thoroughly examined so that the reader gets a full view of TOPGUN's accomplishments, challenges, and its impact.
