Fought the good fight.
I would take Hoover over Yeager any day of the week. That man is a class act 100%. Never met Olds, but I know alot of people who know him well and he seems the same way. His book was amazing.I loved reading Thud Ridge as a kid, although learning some of the "differing opinions" about Broughton later on in life (once I was a River Rat) changed how I view him.
I much prefer Olds, although having personally met Olds and spent some time with him influences that opinion. Broughton is more like Steve Ritchie and Chuck Yeager, while Olds is more like Bob Hoover.
