Mustering of the Hawks, The Flying Ace Thrillers

In the skies over France, only the hawks survived. First in the World War I historical thriller series from the author of The Mercenaries.

1917. The average life-expectancy of an RAF pilot on the Western Front is three weeks. Inexperienced young men are hurled into vicious dogfights over the trenches, often without adequate training, and are slaughtered by the German aces.

Into this hell arrives Ira Penaluna, only nineteen years old and totally in love with aviation.
As those who have become his friends die one by one, Ira realizes that in a world where skill, speed and killer-instinct are all, there is only one way to survive: to think like a hawk.

A searing, moving novel of the First World War, full to the brim with detailed historical research, perfect for fans of Thomas Wood and Wilbur Smith.
