Chickenhawk by Robert Mason

Helicopters in Vietnam.  I’ve seen many recommendations for this book and eventually picked it up at the bookshop at Glastonbury festival where it was featured on a list of books recommended by Nick Mason of Pink Floyd.  It’s an easy read (if anything which covers how people become desensitised to brutality can be) but, it just didn’t grab me the way I’d hoped.  I’m intrigued to read the follow up though having enjoyed the ‘cocaine cowboys’ tale.
