This book covers an often forgotten conflict, over-shadowed as it was by the larger Vietnam War. The conflict was fought in the early days of helicopters and Bristol aircraft contributed extensively. The book follows new recruits as they join up and then fly and fight in the tropical forests on the island of Borneo. The story focuses on Whirlwind helicopters but both Bristol Helicopters feature, the Bristol Sycamore and the twin rota Bristol Belvedere. If that's not enough Bristol for you then fear not as the Bristol Britannia and Freighter have cameos too.
