    1. SUPERB!! Unexpectedly brilliant! So glad I got this book on a whim during a rare mosey around Foyles. Iftach Spector has written the best military auto-biog and maybe the best auto-biog I've ever read. His writing is at once intimate and warm as he confides in his reader. The early chapters and the dominant thread is obviously about his impressive career as a fighter pilot and later expands on the fascinating events during the wars of 67, 68-70, and 73. Those sections alone would make a very goo [...]


    2. Fascinating look at the Israeli air force from its inception to present day through the career of Iftach Spector. Not only a military memoir but a deeper look into what it means to be Israeli at a point in time of divisiveness and moral uncertainty. Solid 4 stars.


    3. lots of good stories and a great narrative. Throughout the book, I developed issues with both Spector and the IAF, but still was entertained and moved by everything that took place.


    4. Filled with details about IAF history to delight any military aviation enthusiast, Loud and Clear also tries to learn from these events.Spector delves into military and political thought, giving this book extra depth beyond the thrill of tails of air combat.
