3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best Apache book in the world!, 20 Mar 2013

This review is from: Apache: Riding the Dragon: Fighting the Taliban and the Heat From 3,000 Feet: War In Afghanistan (Kindle Edition)
I was under the impression that this book would be in the same vein as Apache by Ed Macy and the like, a fair amount of detail about the Apache and some good stories about its use in theatre. I was disappointed. Whilst the book is 'ok', it lacks the detail that I would have liked as someone who's had an interest in the Apache helicopter for years. The underlying story is ok but seems to lack something that I can't quite put my finger on. Maybe its the way that each chapter seems to start by setting the scene of what's to come but never really gets there in terms of excitement and expanding on the subject matter of each chapter. The ending is also quite abrupt and is spoilt by a paragraph regarding the outcome of a certain event that happens to the main character. Its not the worst book I've ever read and there are a few books that I've given up on in the past but I can't say I was gripped either. As for the grammar, I've never seen such a badly written book! There are typos and punctuation errors everywhere even on what was described on my Kindle as an updated version with the typos corrected. This detracted further from what was a mediocre read and left me having to re-read certain passages. In conclusion I can't say that I'm greatly impressed.
