An autobiographical novel, written in the vernacular of the B-52 combat crew members participating in the Arc Light bombing operations in Vietnam.

B*U*F*F is a Vietnam era “autobiographical novel," written in the vernacular of the B-52 combat crewmembers participating in the Arc Light bomb­ing operations in Southeast Asia. It is the story of one Strategic Air Command B-52 crew that allows the reader to experience the intimate details of modern day conventional weapon bombing. There are two mil­lion Vietnam-era veterans who in their own personal way were affected by the B-52 bombing strikes. The recent successes of the B-52 in the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan is a testament that the BUFF is still the premier weapon delivery platform 50 years after it’s first flight in 1952. Climb on board with this combat crew and check your seat belts for the wild adventures, as they follow in the footsteps of their World War II predecessors. B*U*F*F is a timeless epic, updated to the age of computerized electronic warfare against an elusive and controversial enemy.
Excerpt
The flight of three bombers proceeded southbound through the brilliant moonlight. Each crew capsule was a mirror of the others, with identical human activities. With the critical refueling phase behind them, there was little to accomplish until they approached their target area. Their world of noise and claustrophobic confinement would be endured for almost half an earth's rotation.
Rudi took some consolation in remembering that most of the other crewmembers in his cell had also acted like animals last night. They had all rationalized in their own way, that it was acceptable behavior for troops in a war zone. Their own fathers had probably done far worse. All that mattered was when they reached this point in their responsibilities as SAC combat crewmembers, they performed in the manner that was expected, and be successful.

"Bongo, Bongo, Cinnamon flight of three, point Bravo at one eight oh five zulu!" Zoomie yelled, hoping to be heard with his first call two hundred miles away from the GCI site controlling the area for this strike mission.
