Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For Stanley Woolley, commanding offices of Goshawk Squadron, the romance of chivalry in the clouds is just a myth. So, he drums into his men a simple and savage code: shoot the enemy in the back before he knows you're there. Even so, he believes the entire squadron will be dead within three months... Shortlisted for Britain's esteemed Booker Prize, Derek Robinson's masterly novel captures all the drama and violence of the air war over the Western Front in 1918. "...a remarkable story of war in the air."--Peter Townsend. "A terrific impact...has the authoritative ring of a...classic."--The Observer.
