The C-5 Galaxy History: Crushing Setbacks, Decisive Achievements Reviews
Good history of the C-5. It is invaluable that many personnel were interviewed who are now dead. It is unfortunate that a higher quality paper was not used as there are many excellent photos from Lockheed-Georgia and USAF archives. The book would need to be 500+ pages to be an excellent history but if it was that length on high quality paper, the cost would be over $100 and almost nobody would buy it. As it is, it is a good compromise and deserving purchase if you're interested in the C-5.
