The story of the British army's most potent weapons system - the Apache attack helicopter - and of the men who fly her. APACHE DAWN follows the fortunes of one flight of Army Air Corps Apache attack helicopters in operation in Afghanistan's Helmand Province, in the spring and summer of 2007. It tells the story of a pair of aircraft - with the call sign 'Ugly' - and their four aviators who were at the heart of a series of unrelenting and brutally intense combat missions. Told from both aircrew and ground soldier perspectives, the breathtaking tales of rescue, medical evacuation, and devastating close air support are gripping in the extreme, and will leave no reader in doubt as to the quality of the men or machines involved.
