Product description

Product Description

Summer, 1940. Britain is fighting for its very existence against the undefeated German war machine. Outnumbered and battered, the RAF fighter squadrons bear the brunt of Churchill's strategy to resist, with every resource possible, to the bitter end. The Luftwaffe's deadly bombing campaign is nearing the critical moment to clear the way for Operation Sea Lion—the invasion of England. Hitler is winning.

There was a terrible moment when Goliath stumbled. What caused the pause on September 15th between the two massive German air raids designed to finally crush the last of Fighter Command? What gave the RAF time to re-arm and refuel? What unknown event allowed them to gamble invaluable pilots and aircraft in a complete reversal of the previous strategy of caution and restraint? Wasn't this taking the German bait?

David Walker's imaginative tale extrapolates from study of the Ultra intelligence gleaned from the broken German codes and the infamous “Enigma” machine as well as incredible espionage missions into the occupied continent. We live in the cockpit and on a secret mission that pays for the gamble, the gap, that is the 'hinge of fate' for the Battle of Britain. In any decisive moment of history, there will always be an inner human story of turmoil, betrayal, and loyalty among those men and women who face such challenges. This novel tells its tale through the eyes of a young fighter pilot who carries a secret—only he can reveal—to the son of a dead comrade thirty years later.

From the author of "The Traitors", this is a fast-paced war thriller that packs a punch.
