Meet the Author: Colonel Eric "Ferris" Buer, USMC (Ret)

Colonel Eric "Ferris" Buer, USMC (Ret) lived to fly the Marines' AH-1W Cobra gunship, delivering incredible firepower and devasting America's enemies in the aircraft that would become both his home and office. Wherever Marines fought and whenver their commanders needed fire support, he and his fellow Cobra aircrew were there.

Climb in the cockpit and join a Marine attack helicopter pilot in this authentic and compelling firsthand account of the opening days and nights of the Iraq War.

Experience the sights, smells, and sounds of the Cobra, hanging on tight as you’re hurled into the chaos of night combat operations. Step through an otherwise closed door and explore the emotions, physical danger, and successes that would shape a generation of aviators.

Feel the pilots’ frustrations, experience their exhaustion, and lament alongside them in the face of tragedy. Ultimately, you will come to understand how a sense of duty, service, and shared sacrifice develops into an unbreakable trust and bond."
