Follow the adventures of Yacht Fiona and Captain Eric Forsyth as he sails around the world on a 42 foot yacht.
And follow the adventures of RAF Squadron Leader Allan Chadwick in Eric’s latest book, Wings Over Germany, a novel focusing on England’s entry into war with Germany in the Battle of the Blitz. “Forsyth, as always, captures the thrill of flight and the terror of battle with a nuts-and-bolts accuracy that, crucially, doesn’t slow down the suspenseful storytelling during scenes of action.” —Publishers Clearinghouse BookLife Review
Wings Over Germany covers one of the most dramatic periods in recent history, the first part of WWII when the Germany suddenly invades Poland, then Denmark, Norway, Belgium, the Low Countries, and France. The speed of the advance shocks the British. By the summer of 1940 they faced, alone, the seemingly unstoppable German military machine.
Developments in bomber planes and air warfare have never been more crucial to England’s future, and RAF Squadron Leader Allan Chadwick—the recurring character in the “Wings” series—is right at the center of the “gripping action,” as Kirkus Reviews described it, which Eric Forsyth writes about in “brutally evocative prose.” Chadwick is swept up with demands on his technical and flying skills, he commands a Spitfire squadron during the Battle of Britain and despairs when he is forced to lead barely qualified pilots against the battle-hardened Luftwaffe. On a bombing raid he bales out over occupied France, evades the Germans and makes an audacious escape back to England. A daring, low level attack on Berlin in a Mosquito fighter bomber earns Chadwick the personal enmity of Herman Göring who extracts a bitter revenge. Chadwick comes close to ending his flying career when he shoots down the first V-1 to penetrate British air space.
