Just finished Derek Robinson's Goshawk Squadron. Just stumbled on it by accident. Excellent book.

I know we had others set in WWI and in WWII.

I'd like suggestion on what is good. I likely don't have time to read them all (way too many others in the queue). So wanted recommendation if I'm going to just read only one more, which one?

For those who have not read Goshawk, it was a very pleasant surprise to me.

War Story (WWI) or Piece of Cake (WWII)

Piece of Cake would have been my pick, with Twelve O'Clock High in second place.

A great series of books!

I would offer up two titles by Martin Caiden, "The Last Dogfight" and "Whip!" It appears by recent polling that many are unfamiliar with them. Of the two, I like the Last Dogfight best.

Thanks much. Robinson's incorporation of everyday humor and situation really make Goshawk a good read.

Besides, you can watch the Piece of Cake BBC miniseries. Then binge on Danger UXB! (Stayed up past midnight watching the first episode of that.

I keep hoping that I'll run across Robinson's book about Hampden crews.

Another thumbs up for Piece of Cake, you won't regret it.
