Robinson, Goshawk Squadron.

Robinson, Derek. Goshawk Squadron. First Edition. London, Heinemann Ltd., 1971. 14.5 x 22.5 cm. 217 pages. Original Hardcover with original illustrated dustjacket in protective Mylar. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear.

World War One pilots were the knights of the sky, and the press and public idolised them as gallant young heroes.
At just twenty-three, Major Stanley Woolley is the old man and commanding officer of Goshawk Squadron. He abhors any notion of chivalry in the clouds and is determined to obliterate the decent, gentlemanly outlook of his young, public school-educated pilots – for their own good.
But as the war goes on he is forced to throw greener and greener pilots into the meat grinder. Goshawk Squadron finds its gallows humour and black camaraderie no defence against a Spandau bullet to the back of the head.
