I was gripped by this book and could not put it down. At times it felt I was there in the thick of the action. I think the story would be great if made into a movie. Fantastic account of what happens on air assaults and the life of a Apache pilot. I have read the account from Wearing the Green Beret by Jake Olafson when L/cpl Mathew Ford was killed. It was a much better account by Ed Macy. A fantastic read. And shame on the government of that time, yet again exposed their lack of regard and funding for wars they created but failed to back. Leaving soldiers on the ground using their grit and determination to do a great job with out the essential equipment to do the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read., 15 July 2013
It was good to hear about the basic training and the endurance required to become a commando. I have no regrets buying the book and enjoyed reading about his tours of duty.
