THE WORKHORSE OF HELMAND: A Chinook Crewman's Account of Operations in Afghanistan and Iraq
RAF Chinook crewman chronicles his combat experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan over 10 years, from leaving the deck of HMS Ocean off the coast of Pakistan under the cover of darkness all the way through numerous fighting seasons and the chaos of Helmand Province.
Whether it was taking part in air assault missions against a determined enemy, or extracting casualties from the battlefield under fire, and in a life or death race against time, he witnessed both the best and worst of humanity on a daily basis. Paints a gritty picture of repeated operational deployments, harrowing scenes, the humor and camaraderie of comrades, and the exhilaration of surviving Taliban RPG's and AK47 fire.
