Title: Hurricane Squadron : Yeoman Goes to War
Publisher: Arthur Barker
Publication Date: 1978
Book Condition: Fine
Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine
Edition: 1st Edition
Very nice copy with the tiniest wear to the corners. Only real flaw is the underlining in pen that some misguided soul has done to a few key phrases on the inside flap of the jacket. The book is square, tight and unmarked. The first in Mr. Jackson's series about George Yeoman and his career in myriad craft, flying with distinction in various theatres of war. Distinguished by their authenticity, these titles are curiously scarce in such fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 1011
France, May 1940.
Seated in the cockpit of his Hurricane, Sergeant George Yeoman ? young, eager, and innocent in the ways of war ? is on his way to join his first operational squadron.
Meanwhile, the German Panzers advance unchecked through the Ardennes, and as the allied bombers plead to strike at them, the Luftwaffe is already set to launch a decisive blow.
Disaster beckons and Yeoman and No. 505 Squadron soon find themselves courting death in a series of increasingly desperate sorties as the allied army begins its retreat towards Dunkirk.
There are only a handful of them against the might of Hitler?s war machine, and with each sortie the ranks of the Squadron grow ever more depleted.
The odds stacked against them are hopeless...
A vivid tale of a fighter squadron at war, ?Hurricane Squadron? is told with painstaking accuracy, charting a young man?s rise to maturity in the face of combat and sudden death.
Robert Jackson (b. 1941) is a prolific author of military and aviation history, having become a full time writer in 1969. As an active serviceman in the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve he flew a wide range of aircraft, ranging from jets to gliders. ?Hurricane Squadron? is the first book in the Sergeant George Yeoman series.
