Goshawk Squadron is set in the period January-March 1918, just before the German spring offensives. The squadron is equipped with the SE-5a fighter and begins the novel resting and re-building behind the lines. Woolley has been commander of the squadron for one year and although fanatical in his training methods, he is approaching combat burnout. Indeed, Woolley is so cynical (but realistic, as it turns out) that he believes all his pilots will be dead within three months. In a seemingly futile but rabid effort, Woolley spends the brief period behind the lines to train his squadron to be the most cold-blooded and efficient killers possible.Read more ›
The writing quality should be used as a model for all aspiring novelists. Everything is perfect.
Finally, you as reader, need to answer a question after you read the first chapter. Did yo it serious? Funny? Rolling on the floor, laugh out loud funny? If not the last, you're too tightly wound, and must immediately read all of Robinson's work. That should cure you of most ailments. He's that consistent, and that good.
