5.0 out of 5 stars Wow - What a read...... Awesome...! !, 2 Sep 2008
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apache (Hardcover)
Having only retired from the British Army in Jan 2008 the author has already produced this awesome book. I'm not going to review the "plot" as that information is readily available elsewhere on this page. The book is a totally unputdownable true story, focusing on the rescue of a captured lone marine. You are put into the heart of the action, feel the adrenaline and what must have been terror at what really goes on out there. definatley an eye-opener in terms of giving you a taste of life on this particualr front line, and not the carefully edited version we are all fed by the BBC and Sky news....

Illustrated with detailed diagrams and a good selection of photographs I finished this book the same day - which I hate doing as I always feel I haven't had my money's worth !! But without a doubt - it will be being read again....

I really can't recommend this book highly enough. If you want a damned good thrilling factual read then this is for you.

Ian. Thank you for your kind review and I'm extremely pleased you enjoyed the book. It seems to have struck the correct note with you and I hope it will bring to the forefront of peoples minds exactly what Attack Pilots do. As the first person to review my book on Amazon I would like to offer you a free personalised copy of APACHE. If you log onto my website `www edmacy com' and get in touch I will sign a copy and send it to you straight away.
Many thanks
Ed Macy

Being the author of the first Amazon review, I was contacted by Ed Macy - see his comment in this post. He offered me a free personalised copy of his book - which I greatfully accepted. One month and three requests later I have received neither the book nor any reply to my messages sent on the Ed Macy website. Extremely disappointing.

Thanks for replying, and my regrets at having to publish the report above. Is there another way I can contact you other than your website ?
