Product description


A bleak and savage book, full of the terror of warfare and shot through with grim humour; a sort of first-world-war Catch 22 (Nicholas Lezard, Guardian)

A terrific impact . . . Goshawk Squadron has the authoritative ring of a little classic on the subject of war. (Observer)

From the beginning, the feel of this book is totally authentic . . . The comedy is real, too, not gallows humour. I laughed aloud, several times. And was, in the end, reduced to tears. (Daily Telegraph)

One of the most powerful indictments of war I have ever read . . . Quietly savage, funny and heart-breaking . . . A book which must once and for all explode the myth of honourable warfare. (Sunday Telegraph)

Shocking, but by no means insensitive, this novel of Derek Robinson's is a remarkable story of war in the air. (Peter Townsend) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
