Description

This lavishly illustrated photo tribute captures the international scope of modern day American and European amphibious helicopter operations. The over-sized, full-color format and lively narrative draw the reader onto the ships and into the air of the versatile amphibious fleet. The HMS Ocean and the U.S. Navy's Wasp-class LHD USS Bataan, as well as the Dutch Rotterdam are just a few of the new helicopter assault ships covered together with a fleet of new and modernized helicopters. In addition, the author includes chapters on the joint US-UK exercise Bright Star 99, the MV-22 Osprey, RAF Chinooks, and U.S. Marines. Whether engaged in full conventional assault operations or peacekeeping/humanitarian support, helicopter amphibious forces provide an increasingly important role in today's uncertain strategic environment, as this book clearly indicates. A chronicle of their contributions, including photographs of troops and ships on exercises from nearly every NATO force, the book will be a welcome addition to the modern warfare bookshelf.
