Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The Apache helicopter is one of the most effective attack helicopters in the world. Designed to fly quietly and be used at night, these weapons systems combine advanced technology with fearsome armaments. Apaches have been used in warfare to support ground troops, attack enemy armored forces and fortifications. They can travel at high speed and are equipped with advanced radar capacities. It is the mechanical structure and construction of the Apache that the author addresses in this illustrated book, focusing his attention upon both the blueprint of the Apache and the way it is used in combat. The text is accompanied by a large number of photographs of Apaches in action as well as detailed drawings of their construction. Readers will be able to better understand how Apaches fly, what their armaments are, how heavily armored they are, and what tactics their crews use. This is a book that will be enjoyed by youngsters with a mechanical bent or who have an interest in military hardware. It is also a book that has a fairly controlled vocabulary thus allowing reluctant readers to have a high-interest text. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 8 to 10.
