MSC Reviews

What particularly marks this story out as one which should become an epic of First World War aviation stories is the quality of the research that has so clearly gone into the writing and the vivid pictures it paints of a time long past, now beyond living memory. ... It is a great read.


The Lost legend of the Hawk was a total eye-opener. If you like History, carefully researched from the original Latin documents, and transcribed in an entertaining,factional, but totally logical way, read this book. You will not be disappointed.Hopefully, Towton and the amazing battles that changed the face of English history within it`s borders will now get some recognition.


An interesting view of the technicalities of tank warfare.
