Synopsis: Hard cover

About the Author: Derek Robinson is a policeman's son from a council estate who crossed the class barrier by going to Cambridge, where he got a degree in history and learned to write badly. A stint in advertising in London and New York changed that, and in 1971 he finally got it right when Goshawk Squadron was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. His equally acclaimed trilogy of World War Two novels are Piece of Cake, A Good Clean Fight and Damned Good Show. His other novels include The Eldorado Network and Artillery of Lies.
Derek Robinson has also published non-fiction on a variety of themes, from the laws of rugby to the nuclear tests on Christmas Island in the 1950s. His most recent book is Invasion, 1940, a revisionist history of the Battle of Britain. He lives in Bristol.

Book Description Viking Adult, E-61, 1972. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Hardcover. 8vo. The Viking Press. 1972. 246 pgs. First Edition/First Printing (US). DJ has light shelf-wear present to the DJ extremities. No ownership marks present. Text is clean and free of marks, binding tight and solid, boards clean with no wear present. Set during the height of World War I in January 1918, Goshawk Squadron follows the misfortunes of a British flight squadron on the Western Front. 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 Goshawk Squadron is now viewed as a classic in the mode of Catch 22. Wry, brutal, cynical and hilarious, the men of Robinson's squadron are themselves an embodiment of the maddening contradictions of war: as much a refined troop of British gentleman as they are a viscous band of brothers hell-bent on staying alive and winning the war. E-61; 8vo 8" - 9" tall. Seller Inventory # 51058

Book Description Viking, New York, 1972. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First American Edition. 246 pp, 8 3/4" H. Brown cloth spine with gilt and orange lettering, orange paper-covered boards, top edge orange. Orange endpapers. "France, 1918. A cold day in January. A normal day in the Great War - about two thousand men killed along the Western Front. Behind the lines, at an isolated airfield near Pont St. Martin, Commanding Major Stanley Woolley of the Goshawk Squadron, Royal Flying Corps, addresses one of his men: "Where you in bloody control of yourself then, lawnmower?" he demands after a grueling training flight. "That's what you've got to do up there. Turn into a bloody assassin! Kill! Understand, you bastard Boy Scout? Kill!" Scruffy, boozy, obdurate, Woolley has 'a gamekeeper's manners' and a 'trade unionist voice'. He looks forty but is only twenty-three - young for a major but old for a pilot. His black pouchy eyes glazed with exhaustion, he flies the Goshawk Squadron all day, every day, driving his men with a devastating combination of flaying humor and brutality, and all the while convinced they will be dead in three months time - ." Very light browning to fore-edge of text block, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wear, two small edge tears archivally taped, minor toning to spine.
