Armed Action: My War in the skies with 847 Naval Air Squadron [used book], James Newton
1 Armed Action: My War in the skies with 847 Naval Air Squadron [used book]
James Newton UK Headline Review 2007 0755316029 / 9780755316021 Soft cover Good Book Trade Paperback 
'I couldn't see the tank. I couldn't see it...someone was screaming over the radio. "Scream all you want, I still can't see it," I said to my pilot. The next explosion was so close it lifted my chest armour off my body in the shock wave. The noise brought me back to my awful reality. I looked out of the sight to see the shattered cockpit glass. The next one would be it and we knew it.' Lieutenant Commander James Newton survived and was awarded the Distingushed Flying Cross for his bravery. In a career that has seen him in action in Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Sierra Leone Northern Ireland and most recently Iraq, Newton is no stranger to being shot at. He has flown all the aircraft the Navy has and even ones it doesn't. Thrilling, fast-paced and an adrenaline-fuelled journey through a pilot's life, "Armed Action" is a fascinating insight into life in the air.

Mercenary Mum is the true story of a young single mother who went from working at her local Woolworths store to serving as a soldier in the Australian Army's elite Close Personal Protection Unit. She then left the army to become a high-risk security contractor, where she was responsible for protecting high-threat targets from assassination and opportune attack in Iraq. Neryl reveals what it's like to be a woman in a private army trying to survive in a prejudiced man's world, exposed to alcohol-fuelled parties, drugs and sexual abuse. Neryl's professional and personal resolve is pushed to its outermost limit when she is confronted by a shocking ambush and death on the world's most dangerous road in Iraq. How did a na´ve little girl start out playing with Barbie dolls and end up playing with guns and working for the most powerful security company in Baghdad - and how did she manage to survive with her sanity intact? About the Author Neryl Joyce served as a commissioned officer in the Australian Army in its close personal protection unit, then worked as a private security contractor in Iraq. After retiring from the security business, she and her husband moved to Christmas Island to manage a detention centre. Neryl currently lives in Perth.
