Summary

Chief Warrant Officer Robert Mills enlisted in the U.S. Army on 9/11/2001. Relive the day-to-day experiences with Robert just as he lived them. Robert's daily journal will give you a realistic view from his cockpit. His writings cover the entire spectrum, from the joys of simply receiving mail from home, living in harsh conditions, experiencing frequent enemy attacks, aircraft emergencies, and losing a fellow pilot to making the ultimate decision to pull the trigger to end one life in order to save another.

More of a journal-type book.

I've read and listened to a bunch of these kinds of books, but this one, for better or worse is slightly different. It's written more as a diary with the author portraying his feelings and experiences day-to-day. There were not as much detail about his combat experience as I would have liked, but there were some good bits. All in all, I do not regret buying it and listening to it.

Boring

The audio sample, which peeked my interest turned out to be a small few minutes from the last eleven minutes of the entire audio book. The rest of the book is repetitive boring accounts of the author watching movies, making phone calls home, buying gifts for his children, and the general boring tasks of daily insignificant issues. I buy a lot of audio books but this was a wast of money and time.

A truly sorry narrator.

So hard to follow and grasp the inherent danger faced.
It was like listening to Frank Burns from MASH whine. Too bad
