review:
What started as a promising exploration of helicopter operations through US military history quickly devolved into a monotonous collection of personal histories by the men who flew them. As a fellow helo pilot, I certainly respect the men and their stories, but I felt that they were not done enough justice with a simple transcription. Dorr makes no effort to inject any wordsmithing and instead only serves to define the alphabet soup of military aviation acronyms and casually introduce each recollection. On its own, each of the stories is fascinating and insightful, but as the only source in a historical exploration, there is a lot to be desired!
