All is not quiet on the Western Front in 1917, and the men of Hornet Squadron feel as if the war will last for decades. For Woolley and his fellow pilots, only two things can take their mind off combat's tedious brutality: the nurses and a potent brew called "Hornet's Sting." But, as the big summer offensives begin, not even those provide any comfort...Strong, cynical, and extremely well-researched, Robinson's novel captures the reality of the air war and a pilot's life during that horrific time.
