It's more about the lifestyle than the big battle
if you're into your technical specs & military jargon, then this book's for you. If you don't have a good knowledge of this sort of thing, then unless you want to learn, stear clear!
I got a little bored with the first hour of the story being all about the specs of the Apache. It took a long time to get to the big battle story for which the author received his MC. This book does give a good insight into the lifestyle and horrors these pilots face regularly (and indeed the other fighting forces) while they are in Afghanistan.....
It's a remarkable true story, and from the relative comfort, peace and safety of your own home, is a worthwhile listen.

This is a great book that i would recommend without hesitation.
The action is fast paced and the information is descriptive.
I am ashamed to admit it, but I often found myself sat on the driveway, unable to leave the car, transfixed to the story.
The only criticism I have as a member of the Armed Forces is that the Narrator sometimes 'reads' an abbreviation rather than sounding out the acronym. This will bring a smirk to the faces of some, but does not detract from the story one ounce.
