Mark Brandon ´Chopper´ Read is the son of a strict Seventh Day Adventist mother and a shell-shocked former soldier who slept with a loaded gun at his side. Bullied at school, he grew up dreaming of revenge (´´There are none so merciless as those who have been shown no mercy´´, as he later noted). He became a criminal legend who terrorised drug dealers, pimps, thieves and armed robbers on the streets and in jail - but boasts he never hurt an innocent member of the public. This first story of Chopper´s memoirs, written from inside jail and laced with his trademark brutal humour, tells the story of his early life of crime - from streetfighter to standover man, gunman to long-term prisoner - and launched his career as a best-selling author. 1.

It was just after dawn on Thursday, November 14, 1991. The hatch on the cell door slid back. I could see the screw´s face through the slit. I´ve seen better heads on a pig dog, but this time I could have kissed him. Underworld standover man and executioner Mark Brandon ´Chopper´ Read was released from Pentridge Prison in November, 1991, vowing never to return. He became an instant celebrity when his autobiography Chopper: From the Inside hit the best-seller lists (it also holds the record as Australia´s most shoplifted book). Six months later, he was back in jail charged with the shooting of a biker, and busy writing his second volume of memoirs. In this sequel, Chopper gives us more stories of crime and criminals that made his first book an international publishing sensation, from bookie robberies to hitmen, slavery, and kidnapping.Written with dark humour and an intimate knowledge of some of Australia´s most notorious criminals and crimes, Hits and Memories is a unique look at Australia´s underbelly. 1.

Nicknamed ´´Mini-Man´´ for his diminutive stature, a mere five-foot-three and 125 pounds in his flight boots, chopper pilot Ron Alexander proved to be a giant in the eyes of the men he rescued from the jungles and paddies of Vietnam. With an unswerving concern for every American soldier trapped by enemy fire, and a fearlessness that became legendary, Ron Alexander earned enough official praise to become the second most decorated helicopter pilot of the Vietnam era. Yet, for Ron, the real reward came from plucking his fellow soldiers from harm´s way, giving them another chance to get home alive. In Taking Fire, Alexander and acclaimed military writer Charles Sasser transport you right into the cramped cockpit of a Huey on patrol, offering a bird´s eye view of the Vietnam conflict. Packed with riveting action and gritty ´´you-are-there´´ dialogue, this outstanding book celebrates the everyday heroism of the chopper pilots of Vietnam. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Corey M.
