Armed Action - James Newton



Armed Action is the true story of a modern-day war hero. After years of brutal Navy training. Lieutenant Commander James Newton faced the terrifying reality of life on the frontline of southern Iraq – at the controls of a £30m attack helicopter. The ferocious battles that followed the British assault on Basra saw Newton and 847 Naval Air Squadron face an onslaught from tanks, mortar units, snipers and entire divisions of Iraqi troops, as they fought alongside the Royal Marines to protect the strategically vital oil installations.

Newton’s awe- inspiring account reveals a heroic determination to survive and triumph over unimaginable adversity. His daring feats in the air earned him the Distinguished Flying Cross – the first to be awarded to a Royal Navy pilot in over 50 years.
