Cobra - The Attack Helicopter - Mike VerrierThe Spitfire of helicopters, Bell’s AH-1 was the world’s first Attack helicopter.  Born as an ‘interim’ type during the Vietnam War it has remained in continuous front- line service and production ever since – an unequalled record.

This fully illustrated volume charts the ubiquitous ‘Snake’ in detail from its earliest inception through to the awesome AH-1Z ‘Zulu’ now deployed.

The author’s long and close involvement with the Cobra community is fully reflected in a rich and informative narrative that gives this iconic aircraft the spotlight it so clearly deserves as its 50th anniversary approaches.

BITE AND STRIKE books back in stock

326 pages of history, stories and images – now in full colour - as told by the members of the 129th AHC and compiled by 129th veteran Bill Wolf.

Our Huey supported the troops of 129th AHC  and we are extremely proud to offer this book for sale in our shop. 

The foreward by Bill Wolf begins:
‘Over three decades ago the men of the 129th Assault Helicopter Company spent a part of their youth in the distant southeast Asian country of Vietnam in an unpopular war.  Helicopter casualties accounted for 10% of the fatalities.  Thirty nine members of the 129th did not return.  For those that did return, each had to deal with the impact of these losses physically and emotionally.’

What follows is a moving record of personal accounts and photographs from members of the 129th of their time in Vietnam at work and during their time out.   Also featured are stories and poems; some humorous, some sad, all extremely moving.

The original publication featured black and white photographs – they are now in full colour.  

As Bill Wolf comments   ‘ Many of these stories and poems reflect the history of the 129th as much as the ‘official records’ for they offer an insight into the mind of those who have witnessed much.  They reflect the daily lives of the crews, their experiences, their tragedies and their honour’.
