Cant Put It Down

by charger on Nov 13, 2008

Derek Robinson has written an excellent book about the air war in WW1. His writing style is unadorned. He sketches characters and situations with a minimum of words but the reader gains a great appreciation of the terrible price paid by these young airmen. They arrive on the scene naive and full of enthusiasm and gradually descend into despair and hopelessness as they experience the madness of war. Goshawk Squadron is an early work and it presages Robinson's later books about the airwar during WW1 and WW2. This is not a typical war novel full of flash bang action. It is much more about individuals coping with extreme circumstances. I have searched for every work of fiction by Derek Robinson and I immediately read them from cover to cover.
