Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A cross between "Black Hawk Down" and "One Bullet Away, Apache" tells the fascinating story of the deadliest, most technologically advanced fighting machine: the Apache helicopter. b&w photographs.

Synopsis:

Apache is the incredible true story of Ed Macy, a decorated Apache helicopter pilot, that takes you inside the cockpit of the worlds most dangerous war machine. A firsthand account of the exhilaration and ferocity of war, Apache chronicles a rescue mission involving a stranded soldier in Afghanistan in 2007.

Ed Macy had always dreamed of a career in the army, so when the British Army Air Corps launched its attack helicopter program, Ed bent every rule in the book to make sure he was the first to sign up to fly the Apache—the deadliest, most technically advanced helicopter in the world and the toughest to fly.

In 2007, Eds Apache squadron was dispatched to Afghanistans notorious Helmand Province with the mission to fight alongside and protect the men on the ground by any means necessary. When a marine goes missing in action, Ed and his team know they are the Armys only hope of bringing him back alive. Apache is Macys story—an adrenalin-fueled account of one of the most daring actions of modern wartime, and a tale of courage, danger, and comradeship you wont be able to put down.

Charlie Branch, March 2, 2012 (view all comments by Charlie Branch)
Andy McNab's comment, "Puts you right in the cockpit... Awesome." is on the money. This is Ed Macy's first book, and is worth reading first as he describes experiences of his second tour in Afghanistan as his squadron's weapons officer, flying the Westland Apache AH Mk I, modified from the US Army's AH-64D, for starters with 30% more power. Sounds like the P-51 Mustang, eh? Without the Rolls Royce engines, the Mustang would be merely a footnote in history. The author describes the aircraft systems including the targeting system that uses the aviator's right eye for aiming while the left eye performs other multitasking chores independently. Yeah, it puts you in the heat, sand, smoke, and fog of battle.
