Présentation de l'éditeur :

"My fingers close around the trigger. I pause for a split second to think about the bullets I am about to spray across the ground. After today, I'll no longer be the new girl"

Captain Charlotte Madison is a typical 26 year old woman. She looks forward to her weekly instalment of gossip magazines, worries she is developing bingo wings and is planning her fairytale wedding. She also flies Apache gunships for a living.

Britain's first ever female Apache pilot, Charlotte knows exactly what it's like to fight on the frontline in the Army's deadliest machine. During the daring Jugroom Fort rescue, Charlotte became the first British pilot since WWII to use all her ammunition in one mission. She has not only mastered the skills required to fly an Apache and shoot from the air, but also earned the respect and admiration of her male colleagues, proving that whatever they could do, she could do just as well.

From her intensive training to her tours of duty in Afghanistan, Charlotte shares all the dramatic details:

The exhaustion of being confined in an airless cockpit for up to eleven hours

The adrenalin rush of lethal, full-scale mid-air assault

What it is like to kill in the name of duty

Her female perspective on what being at war is really like

DRESSED TO KILL is the extraordinary, gritty and exhilarating story of a young woman at war in a dangerous, mostly male, world.

Revue de presse :

It's not very often a war book makes its way onto Hot Stars' radar, but this real-life memoir by 26-year-old Charlotte is truly unique. She is just like one of us - she loves reading about celebs and fashion - but she's also on the frontline in Afghanistan. Passionate, hilarious and at times heart-wrenching, this brilliant book had us gripped! ( )

Gripping and full-bloodied, Charlotte's excellent book is sure to fly off the shelves ( News of the World)

[Charlotte Madison] brings us this thrilling, honest and extremely winning memoir - in which she gives voice to her fairly unique experience of being a woman living, flying and fighting in a war zone (www.michaelfuchs.org)
