GOSHAWK SQUADRON, by Derek Robinson (A Cassell Military Paperback) Novel
This is Derek Robinson's masterly novel of war in the air over the Western Front in 1918. For hero of the book Stanley Wooley, commanding officer of Goshawk Squadron, the romance of chivalry in the clouds is just a myth. The code he drums into his men is simple and savage: shoot the enemy in the back before he knows you're there. This is a good read about the RAF in World War One. Soft cover. 224 pages.
