“Darker Shades of Blue: The Rogue Pilot” is an excellent read. The author is Tony Kern and he was a colleague and friend of Bud Holland who was the aircraft commander in the B52. He was commissioned by USAF to review the accident and was shocked to learn what his friend had been up to and how the command structure had known about it and condoned it (and even laughed about it) for years.
