Product description


'A cracking yarn ... his attention to detail in action scenes cannot be faulted' Tina Moran, Daily Express.--Daily Express

'Brilliantly combines readability [and] pitch-black humour ... A bitterly funny evocation of the lunacies of war' Nick Rennison, BBC History.--BBC History

'Robinson has a superlative talent for aerial combat ... With such epic action, characters, plot and dialogue, it's hard to believe that Robinson's work has yet to be filmed' Ian Irvine, Independent.--Independent
