In this book, Lieutenant Commander James Newton DFC provides a breathtaking personal account of the ferocious battles that followed the British assault on Basra, Newton and his colleagues in the illustrious 847 Naval Air Squadron fought against tanks, mortar units, snipers and entire divisions of Iraqi troops as the Marines on the ground laid siege to the strategically vital oil installations. The skills that saw him survive the attacks in Iraq were the result of 15 years experience flying all the aircraft the Navy has, and some it doesnt. Dramatic and moving, this is the truth about life as a front line helicopter pilot; living and fighting alongside the Royal Marines, one of the most revered combat forces in the world.
