The Apache attack helicopter is one of the world's most awe - some weapons systems. Deployed for the first time in Afghanistan, it has already passed into legend. The only thing more incre - dible than the Apache itself are the pilots that fly her. For the first time, Apache Dawn tells their story--and their baptism of fire in the unforgiving battle of Helmand Province. Their call-sign was "Ugly"--and there was no better word for the grueling 100-day deployment they endured. Day after day, four of England's Army Air Corps' finest pilots flew right into the heart of battle, testing their aircraft to the very limit. Apache Dawn takes the reader with them on a series of unrelenting and brutally intense combat missions, from daring, edge-ofthe- seat rescues to dramatic close-air support in the white heat of battle. Bestselling author Damien Lewis has been given unprece - dented access to these heroic aircrews and to the men on the ground whose lives they saved. It is an astounding story of bravery, skill and resilience in the face of unbelievable odds. And it is the story of the Apache itself--the ultimate fighting machine.

A real page turner and the author does an excellent job of describing the numerous dangerous missions these brave men and women flew for the British Forces to support the troops on the ground.
