For Stanley Woolley, 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. Even so, he believes the whole squadron will be dead within three months. A monumental work at the time of its original release, Booker-shortlisted ... Show more

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.
