"Tito's Jet Jockeys, US Jets in Yugoslav Air Force During Cold War", is the monograph which describes the arguably most intensive almost Golden age of the Yugoslav Air Force. It became after the Tito's clash with the Stalin in 1948, which expulsed Yugoslavia from Socijalist lagerm and renewal of the good relations with its former Second World War allies now core NATO states. After joining the Mutual Defence Aid Programme in late 1951, Yugoslavia started to receive contemporary od modern types of warplanes. Since March 1953 to late 1957, Yugoslav Air Force has received a total of 257 US Jets. Later, through commercial purchases, the number of the US Jets reached over 600 examples that soldier in the YAF until mid-1970s and provided its backbone and unique Cold War experience. The book was written upon the declassified archival sources that are kept in Military Archive and YAF Museum in Belgrade, coupled with numerous interviewx that authors gathered in many years. It featured some 380 photos, many of them never seen so far. Finally, it was titled upon the way how the American observers called Yugoslav pilots during the training in USAFE bases in Europe 1952-1953.

Das Buch wurde erst durch jüngst freigegebenes Archivmaterial möglich, das im Militärarchiv und im Jüdischen Museum in Belgrad aufbewahrt wird. Viele der präsentierten Informationen stammen aus zahlreichen Interviews mit ehemaligen Piloten. Das Buch zeigte rund 380 Fotos, von denen viele noch nie veröffentlicht wurden. Der Buchtitel, "Tito's Jet Jockeys", entspringt der Bezeichnung, die die jugoslawischen Piloten bei ihrer Ausbildung auf den U.S. Air Force Basen in Europa in den Jahren 1952-1953 erhielten.
