The White Sea Bird
by David Beaty
A battle of nerves between a British squadron-leader and a German sea-captain.
Deep in a Norwegian fjord hides the German merchant-cruiser Groningen. Squadron-leader Guy Strickland knows it is there, but Military Intelligence refuses to take his word for granted.
He leads his exhausted squadron into the air in order to take the vital photographic evidence – but only his plane returns.
A maverick and a brilliant flyer, Strickland becomes obsessed with the Groningen. So begins a grim and bitter struggle to the death, between Brit and German, between the plane and the ship…
This thrilling wartime action story by a master storyteller of drama in the air vibrates with tension to the final page, and is perfect for fans of Max Hennessy, W. E. Johns and Alistair MacLean.
