Apache: Inside the Cockpit of the World's Most Deadly Fighting Machineby Ed Macy
Synopses & Reviews
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.
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.
