“With more than 1,000 black-and-white photographs and an engaging page layout somewhere between magazine and scrapbook, Truckbusters from Dogpatch is a rich historical document, entertaining read, and ode to the dedication, professionalism, creative problem-solving, and sacrifice of more than 3,500 of the Air Force’s finest.

From the macroscopic view of the Wing’s role in the war, to the workarounds crew chiefs used to keep their Mustangs in the air, Truckbusters from Dogpatch is fascinating, informative, and visceral.”

See and hear Captain Connors explain why he wrote Truckbusters From Dogpatch.

“The story of this awesome and unique Wing is long overdue. It is a saga that clearly illustrates the gathering and performance of the best, brightest and bravest group of combat fighter pilots and their exceptional support personnel that I have ever known. For me my days as a Truckbuster are truly amongst the very finest days of my life and believe me, as I look back from my ninth decade there have been some great days.”

Lt. General Devol “Rock” Brett, USAF (Ret)

“What a tremendous, true combat history of a fighting outfit. I have never read the equal of this book. Anyone who wants to know what it’s like in combat needs to read ‘Truckbusters From Dogpatch.’ I read it in awe and I wish you well in your endeavors.”

Wilfred “Budd” Stapley

“What an amazing book. Surely, this is a significant and valuable record of an important chapter in American military history. Truly remarkable! The scope of it is overwhelming.”

– Dr. Frances B. Kinne, Chancellor Emeritus, Jacksonville University

“Truckbusters is a monumental effort by Captain Connors and will certainly fill a big nitch in the history of the 18th Fighter-Bomber Wing.”

– Lt. Col. Richard H. Schiebel, USAF (Ret)

“A masterful job…enjoyable to read…large number of photos a strongpoint of the book…photos complement the stories well…make them meaningful…does not pull his punches…sobering moments…runs the gamut of the Wing’s experience in Korea…stories are revealing for folks who may not have been aware of what was going on in Korea…some stories paint graphic pictures of combat that may not be palatable to squeamish readers…it is about war, after all…includes the humor and pathos of every day events…When looking for a thorough, education history of the air war in Korea,” readers “cannot do any better.”
