Yes, I too have got & read 'Chickenhawk' and really enjoyed Robert Mason's style, as it sorta puts you right in the 'experience' there with him, 'beads-of-sweat-on-the-brow' & all !
-I think the book some have mentioned but cannot recall the name of, was one I read before Chickenhawk and was called '365 Days' by Ronald J. Glasser... it was particuarly about 'medivac' flying and the terrible waste that was the Vietnam War type-thing, as I recall & quite a gripping read it was also...
Also, I too love the 'Loach', I too will follow those books up, many thanks there guys...

If "Loach" books are your thing, I would highly recommend Easy Target by Tom Smith. It is easily as good as Low Level Hell....
I've just finished reading Easy Target and I concur. I found that Hugh Mills gung ho attitude grates after a while in Low Level Hell, while on the other hand Tom Smith admitting that he gave up flying Loaches because he was too scared rings far truer to me.

I preferred To the Limit: An Air Cav Huey Pilot in Vietnam, rather than Chickenhawk or Low Level Hell - all excellent though I also like Once A Warrior King - not about aircraft but excellent. Many excellent fixed wing books too
