Tumult in The Clouds

I heard a rumour that this book comes with the authors signature on request?

Yup, yo'll be asked to choose airmail or surface mail. Note that I process the credit card details manually (not all the details are stored on the site) and will reduce the total charge if the actual postal rate is cheaper.

I'm not sure if prepaid works or not. I know the virtual credit cards are not accepted by my gateway provider.

Currently really enjoying latest read from Wordsworth Books - Eye of the Firestorm - by Maj Gen (Retd) Roland De Vries. Strength lies in mobility. Roland got the nickname - "Rommel of the SADF" which should give an idea of the book content. Its a big read - 911 pages - illustrated as well with pics - and selling at this major book seller for a very reasonable R153.00 brand new!!! =P~ :smt023 \:D/

Did you know that Cape Town International Airport (Int arrivals) has a free library? The idea is you leave books on their shelves and can select a book to read at the same time. Great idea and we often drop off books there now.

I was rewarded this week when dropping off some books there, when to my utter joy found a copy of "Gunship Ace" - the wars of Neall Ellis helicopter pilot written by Al J. Venter. Busy reading it now. \:D/

Also found an immaculate hard back copy of 'The hunt for Puma 164" which I also got off their shelves but for a forum member.

A little different but it has aircraft in it - Firestrike 7/9. It's about a British Army JTAC in Helmand Province Afghanistan. Quite a read!

[quote = I have both Apache and Hellfire, but I didn't enjoy Hellfire as much as Apache. In fact, I don't think I even got half way. Perhaps it's time for me to start reading it again.[/quote]



Just followed through on this recommendation and read APACHE by Ed Macey. It is a riveting and highly descriptive account of the Apache Helicopter, its weapons configurations, technology deployed and operations in Afghanistan. Yep, I would highly recommend it plus it has plenty of colour photos as well.
