Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Thriller / suspense

The second novel in a pacy and thrilling adventure series set during World War Two by critically acclaimed author Frank Barnard

Continuing the brilliant World War Two fighter pilot series - this time the theatre of war is the incredible story of the Siege of Malta.

Summer 1941. The tiny island of Malta has become the most bombed place on earth. The Germans and Italians want to destroy it. For the fighter pilots of the RAF, initially equipped with ageing Hurricanes and outnumbered in the air, defeat seems almost certain. Flight commanders Englishman Kit Curtis and American Ossie Wolf have survived the Fall of France and the Battle of Britain but Curtis remains idealistic and eager to prove himself. Wolf, by contrast, is ruthless and thrives in the chaos of imminent invasion. But as each man is tested to the limit, they come to share a fresh understanding. By turns brutal, funny, tragic and heroic here is a spellbinding tour de force, a brilliant sequel to the bestselling BLUE MAN FALLING.
