I've written a couple of posts on the F8U-3 and a monograph for Steve Ginter.
The monograph is pretty good, if I do say so myself, but if in doubt you can read reviews of it on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/dp/0984611401 and then order it if it appeals
Whether or not you have the monograph, this is a pretty good Vought sales pitch for the airplane, emphasizing the fact that a radar operator wasn't necessary for the successful interception of an attack: http://www.texasarchive.org/library/index.php/F8U-3_Weapons_System
Unfortunately, the admirals didn't agree, opting for the two-seat F4H instead...
