Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on June 28, 2019
This was extremely well done. It covers so many interesting and necessary tangentially related stories. It focuses not just on John and his heroic actions but also on the fog of war and how a situation can devolve so badly so quickly. When covering the CCT pipeline, it skips the standard fare of other stories (I I I, me me me, BUDS is hard but I’m better) and focuses instead (and only briefly) on the skills taught which are vital to a controller’s success. The retelling of different CCT contributions in war are compelling and griping. The retelling of John Chapman’s life - and ultimately his death - is handled in a way befitting of someone with his grit and courage. I highly recommend this book to anyone even remotely interested in the chaos of early fighting in Afghanistan and in the contributions of airpower brought by CCT Airmen. This is a story that needed to be told.
