A stunning book about the right stuff in the wrong war.

As a child, Robert Mason dreamed of levitating.

As a young man, he dreamed of flying helicopters - and the U.S. Army gave him his chance.

They sent him to Vietnam where, between August 1965 and July 1966, he flew more than 1,000 assault missions. In Chickenhawk, Robert Mason gives us a devastating bird's eye-view of that war in all its horror.

He experiences the accelerating terror, the increasingly desperate courage of a man 'acting out the role of a hero long after he realises that the conduct of the war is insane,' says the New York Times.

'And we can't stop ourselves from identifying with it.'

CHICKENHAWK contains the most vivid, astoundingly intense descriptions of flying ever written. It is a devastating account of men at war, of courage and cowardice, boredom and exhilaration, lasting friendship and sudden death. It is not a book for weak stomachs, but its powerful message will stay in the memory long after the last page is turned.

Why are people voting this negative? It's a good deal!


Because there is no rhyme nor reason to the voting on this site...people will vote cold regardless of whether it is a good deal if they don't like the item....it's not their favourite poster.....it's cold outside....they're having an off day....they don't like cats....they didn't support Brexit....they don't like the PM...you name it they'll use it as a reason to vote cold

Doesn't matter to me in any shape or form as as long as the deal helps one person out that's all that matters to me at the end of the day

Outstanding book!!
Great book voted hot
Great story
Brilliant book !!.
Brilliant book
Good book read this a few years ago.
Bought
Good read. Worth 99p. Realised how hard it is to fly a helicopter, even more difficult under fire during war
Great book. Also recommend Herr's 'Dispatches' and Caputo's 'A Rumor Of War'.
Read this book years ago it's a fantastic read. Written by a us helicopter pilot. I couldn't put it down I highly recommend it.
Great book. Have had it for ages.
Thoroughly recommended
Made it go over 100. Haven't read it in about 30 years. Amazing book.
Great book, well worth the read even if (like me), helicopters and war are not really your thing.
Read this years ago. Couldn’t put it down. Recommended....
Read this 10 years ago, very very good
Yeah ditto ...read this years ago....great read
Great book. Completely different genre, but the book 'the ice killer' is a great read as well
Read this nearly thirty years ago and still rate it as one of the best war books ever written. 99p is an absolute steal for this....
Read it when it was on offer last year, good read well worth 99p

Thanks.

"He conducted this sadistic business with cold-hearted intensity, never disappointing his customers. For an additional price, he would make his victims suffer. By his own estimate, he killed over 200 men, taking enormous pride in his cunning and the ferocity of his technique."

Perhaps I'm too squeamish

It's a fascinating book. His first kill was a random dog walker who he killed just to prove to the mafia he was willing to do it at the drop of a hat. I think it's £6 on Amazon.... Easily worth it.
Jesus Nut!
Excellent book, recommended
I don't usually read books as I don't have the patience. This is the only book I actually managed to read to the end. Loved it.
