Description

THE TRUE STORY OF ONE MAN’S DETERMINATION TO MASTER THE WORLD’S DEADLIEST HELICOPTER, AND OF A SPLIT-SECOND DECISION THAT CHANGED THE FACE OF MODERN WARFARE.

Ed Macy bent every rule in the book to get where he wanted to be: on Ops in the stinking heat ot the Afghan summer, with' the world’s greatest weapons system at his fingertips. It’s 2006 and he is part of an elite group of pilots assigned tc the controversial Apache AH Mkl gunship programme. So far, though, the monstrously expensive Apache has done little to disprove its detractors.

But everything changes in the skies over Now Zad. Under fire and out of options. Ed has one chance to save his own skin and those of the men on the ground Though the Apache bristles with awesome weaponry, its fearsome Hellfire missile has never been fired in combat. Then, in the blistering heat of the firefight, the trigger is pulled.

It's a split-second decision that torever changes the course of the Afghan war as overnight the gunship is transformed from an expensive liability to the British Army’s greatest asset. From that moment on, Ed and his squadron mates will face the steepest learning curve of their lives - fighting an endless series of high- octane missions against a cunning and constantly evolving enemy. Ed himself will have to risk everything to fly, fight and survive in the most hostile place on earth.

Ed Macy left the British Army in 2008, after twenty-three years’ service. He had amassed a total of 3,930 helicopter flying hours, 645 of them in an Apache. Ed was awarded the Military Cross for his courage during the now legendary Jugroom Fort rescue in January 2007. He wrote of that fateful mission in the bestselling Apache. Hellfire is his second book.
