Chopper: A History of America Military Helicopter Operators from WWII to the War on Terro Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Real-life stories from the pilots and the passengers.

From its first use in military operations, during a rescue mission behind enemy lines in 1944, to its crucial role in Vietnam, to the Black Hawk combat copters in the current war on terror, the helicopter changed the face of aviation-and the face of warfare. Whether they are bringing supplies and medical help or coming to the rescue of trapped soldiers, the modern battlefield could not function without them.

Synopsis:

The first oral history of American military helicopter operations from WWII to the War on Terror.

About the Author

Compiled by noted historian and aviation expert Robert F. Dorr, Chopper features first-hand accounts of the helicopter's evolution in times of war. The only oral history of its kind, filled with photographs, it is a handsome volume that will earn a prominent place on the bookshelves of military history readers.
