    One thought on “Apache Dawn”

    1. This was a decent book, but it seemed to me, like a couple of other books written by British service members about the Afghan Iraq wars, kinda sterile Maybe that s the English character, downplay the danger, take it all in stride.I still remember the impact that Romesha s Red Platoon had, it felt like the closest you can get to battle without actually going there with guys.Well written, and I did not know that there are Apache squadrons in the British army.

    2. Apache Dawn is a non fictional story by Damien Lewis Like many other war story writers, he has actually seen the action, and his writing is uncanny Basically, the idea behind this book is to recognize apache pilots in a documentary style, an amazing read even if you re not interested in the topic The day to day activities will capture your minds.Their story starts with their training on the Salisbury Plain of England where the local village s newsletter warns of a new training schedule of parach [...]

    3. An interesting read It is the story of a group of British Apache pilots during the Afghan conflict, told from a British point of view That is, it is an interesting contrast to the usual American version of these things, with less jingoism and flag waving.Interestingly, the author makes the point several times that the British pilots took extreme care in ensuring that their human targets were, in fact, hostile forces and not innocent civilians In fact, the pilots in the book were quite upset at o [...]

    4. Whilst a good book, the author starts with the apache rescue at Jugroom Fort highlighting excellent work by 656 squadron apaches, perhaps he should have read the book by Ed Macy MC decorated for his action in flying an Apache and subsequent action on the ground during the rescue of Marine Matthew Fordfunny he doesnt mention this at all was that a glaring omission as were some other aspects like the incorrect names of all the Apache aircrew involvedAnd there is no excuse for perhaps the names wer [...]

    5. A document of a 100 day tour of duty of the aircrew and a little about the groundcrew of Apache helicopters in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan in 2007.The Helicopter sounds awesome, the pilots brave as fYou know I just don t feel as if I can comment on the things that go on in this book they are so far outside of my experience that anything I say would just be I don t know kinda awkward or wrong The way the book is written makes it sound like any wins were won only because of nah, I can t sa [...]

    6. I truly admire the excellent job which the apache pilots did here and especially in undoubtedly saving lives of ground troops The book describes many of the operations they were involved in It goes into too much technical detail for my liking I found the book exciting and sad in places and mundane in others, much like the lives of the participants I imagine No offence to the pilots but it s only OK A two and a half.

    7. This book is about the Afganistan war were the apache s were stationed into five groups they had the moto, always outnumbered, never outgunned It was a true story of how the inexperienced had became heroes and they keep having funny humour with occasional swear words in it I felt it was the best book I ever read about and it is about a true story, so this book is a one to read.

    8. This an interesting, no nonsense, journal of a British Army Air Corps flight comprising two Apache Helicopters and crew on a three month deployment to Afghanistan I enjoyed the personal comments about family back in the UK and the relationship between the flyers and their ground crews and with other flights on the same deployment.

    9. Wow This book was amazing It helped me to understand the war in Afghanistan and I knew very little about it but once I finished this book I had a great understanding The courage of the crew on Flight Ugly was amazing.These men fought for their country and showed determination and skill.

    10. Wow This book was amazing It helped me to understand the war in Afghanistan and I knew very little about it but once I finished this book I had a great understanding The courage of the crew on Flight Ugly was amazing.These men fought for their country and showed determination and skill.

    11. Compelling, easily read but also leaves the reader with a sense of frustration after reading So the donkey lives but does it save Afghanistan when all the others are killed in droves read and you will comprehend

    12. Really liked this book and the first one of Damien s I have read Explains about what goes on in Afghanistan in much detail than you hear on the news as you hardly ever hear about the helicopter teams that are supporting the ground troupes Can wait to read of Damiens work.

    13. Damien Lewis has an amazing ability to drop you right in the action and enable you to have a real insight into what the Apache pilots have to deal with not just under fire but the emotions they go through after missions Amazing read couldnt put it down.

    14. Just finished this book and it was OK, surprisingly for Damien Lewis I didn t find it really caught me and whilst it was OK it definitely isn t one of his better books If you re interested in the Apache read the two by Ed Macey, they are far better.

    15. A good read with plenty of action that tells what really happens in a war with an often invisible enemy who will stop at nothing These blokes are truly heros.
