As a child, Robert Mason dreamed of livitating. As a young man, he dreamed of flying helicopters - and the US 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 it's horror, as he experiences the accelerating terror, the increasingly desparate courage of a man 'acting out the roles 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 identifying with it.'

Brett on
one of the best books to come out of the vietnam conflict. impossible to not be moved.
Deb on
This was one of the first books I read on the Vietnam war and I was shaken by it's in-your-face format. I clearly thought that I could safely pilot a helicopter after reading it, such was the detailed description. Equally as graphic was the horror that was revealed from behind the scenes, from someone who lived it. This was an amazing and eye-opening read!
