Amber Smith flew into enemy fire in some of the most dangerous combat zones in the world. One of only a few women to fly the Kiowa Warrior helicopter, Smith rose to Pilot-in-Command and Air Mission Commander in the premier Kiowa unit in the Army, repeatedly flying into harm's way during her 2005 and 2008 deployments with the 101st Airborne Division, the Screaming Eagles. Smith takes you into the heat of battle, enabling readers to feel, hear, and smell the experience of serving as a combat pilot in high-intensity warfare. She learned to perform under pressure and persevere under extreme duress-both in action against an implacable enemy and within the elite boy's club of Army aviation.

"In a clear voice and confident tone, Rachel Fulginiti narrates the memoir of Amber Smith, a former Army helicopter pilot. Smith recounts her transition from raw recruit in boot camp to her tours of duty in both Iraq and Afghanistan. In between come accounts of officer candidate school and flight training. As a soldier, she learned to "embrace the suck" and "earned her spurs" as a member of the 2nd Squadron of the 17th Cavalry Regiment. Fulginiti's earnest delivery moves easily through the text. Her alto voice is clear and somewhat understated, but still subtly expressive. Her narration works well with the author's often wry sense of humor. While maintaining a professional style, her performance has an informal, approachable quality that is very engaging. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
