It is a collection of his magazine articles accepted for publication over the past two years in the United States and Europe.

When he steps outside the cockpit and gives his strong opinions on the subject of aviation, you may not agree with him, but you will know exactly where he is coming from. That these articles were accepted for publication and read by hundreds of thousands of aviation-like people worldwide attests to the quality of his prose.”

One reader of Giants Over Korea: A Sky Too Far said, “Giants over Korea details the dangerous flights over hostile territory during the Korean conflict. Fulgaro details the harrowing missions of the lumbering WWII vintage bombers in their deadly cat and mouse games with fast Chinese MIG jet fighters. Very technical but still an easy read. The author effectively uses great photographs and original news articles in the book.”
