The Apache attack helicopter is one of the world's most awesome
weapons systems. Deployed for the first time in Afghanistan, it has
already passed into legend. The only thing more incredible than the
Apache itself are the pilots who 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 hundred-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-of-the-seat
rescues to dramatic close-air support in the white heat of
Bestselling author Damien Lewis has been given unprecedented
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.
