Apache Helicopter Pilots

Antony Loveless (author)

Publisher: Crabtree Publishing Company ISBN: 9780778798057

These army pilots fly the most demanding helicopter in existence, a machine so complex to operate that its known as Riding the Dragon. Only 3% of existing army helicopter pilots qualify to fly it. Trainees have to learn to train their eyes to work independently of each other while the right eye sees flight and weapons information in the helmet's monocle, the left eye is free to look outside the aircraft and scan for threats and other obstacles. And, flying the helicopter is only half the battle it's purpose is to provide firepower from the air to protect soldiers on the ground. This book lifts the lid on what life is like for these men and women; their training; the aircraft; the missions, and what its actually like to be under fire while flying.

Infantry Soldiers

James Nixon (author)

Publisher: Crabtree Publishing Company ISBN: 9781427180766

The backbone of any army, infantry soldiers seem to get all of the action but none of the glory. Trained for the very physical and aggressive work of engaging the enemy on the ground, the infantry's main focus is to advance on the enemy, take control of territory, and hold it. Not surprisingly, the infantry tends to take high casualties because they are usually sent to the hottest spots in combat. This book looks at the high-risk jobs of the infantry soldier, including attack, defense, patrol, and intelligence gathering.
