About the Author:

Douglas Reeman served in the Royal Navy in the Atlantic and Mediterranean campaigns during World War Two. He has written 37 novels under his own name as well as 28 novels featuring Richard and Adam Bolitho under the pseudonym Alexander Kent.

From AudioFile:

It's mid-1943, and the outcome of WWII is clearly in doubt. Battle convoys are formed to protect Allied merchant ships, which are being sunk at an alarming rate. The backbone of these convoys is composed of tiny escort carriers with their complement of Seafire fighter planes and Swordfish torpedo bombers. WINGED ESCORT tells the gruesome story of the brave Swordfish crews who steer their lumbering bi-wing bombers into withering enemy fire to line up a torpedo shot. Reader David Rintoul adds so much to this story. His dynamic descriptions of air combat are filled with the power of gallant deeds and the raw emotion of human fear and suffering. Likewise, dialogue during day-to-day sea duty is always true to life and straightforward. Rintoul brings Reeman's words to life and confronts listeners with the tragedy of war.
