Product description

Used, very good condition, hard cover with dust jacket.
In September 1990 Richard Boswell was a newly qualified helicopter pilot in the Royal Navy, flying one of the most potent fighting helicopters in the world, the Western Lynx. Then Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait and, with less than 24 hours notice, he was onboard HMS Manchester and en route to the Gulf and impending war. Boswell saw action against Iraqi forces, protecting Allied ships and sinking a number of Iraqi gunboats. After the liberation of Kuwait, he flew extensively around the devastated country, when his duties included a spell as pilot for Sir Peter de la Billiere. After returning to the UK, Boswell became an instructor and also indulged his passion for flying home-built aircraft, a passion that led to the accident that very nearly killed him and ended his days as a Navy pilot. The portrayal of the battle to rebuild his shattered life is every bit as graphic as his wartime experiences in the Gulf.
The top edge of the dust jacket is slightly creased but otherwise the book is in excellent condition. The binding is sound, the corners are sharp and the pages are all clean and unmarked.
