Action stations again-this is Reeman's 16th novel of the British navy in WW II. Pilot Tim Rowan, who's already had a bad year (one crash) hover-covers over the Growler, part of an Allied convoy. There are other participants but mostly it's Rowan's story, after he's sent off to knock out a tanker, after he hears his home and parents have been blitzed to death, after he's the only survivor of an exploding flare picked up in the water, and after he reaches Sydney where he falls in love with another officer's wife

Download for offline reading, highlight, bookmark or take notes while you read Winged Escort. As the grim years of the Second World War go by, the destruction of Allied shipping mounts. Out of the terrible loss of men and ships, the escort carrier is born. They were typically half the length and a third the displacement of larger fleet carriers. While they were slower, carried fewer planes, and were less well armed and armored, escort carriers were cheaper and could be built quickly, which was their principal advantage.

Odds are long for the British destroyers assigned to escort vital northern convoys through the bitter Arctic Sea in the bloodiest days of WWII. Commander Graham Martineau, still haunted by the loss of his ship and crew to Nazi destroyers, must take on a new command: the Tribal Class destroyer Hakka. A novel from the bestselling master storyteller of the sea, Douglas Reeman; he has also written over twenty bestselling novels featuring Richard Bolitho, under the pseudonym Alexander Kent.

Take this book on your weekend to the beach, cabin in the woods or someplace you'll be undisturbed for a day because once you get into it, you'll want to read/listen on through...

The book starts a tad slow as the author introduces the characters and sets up the subplot so the main story has extra gravitas. The main character is a fighter pilot sent to an escort carrier, the "Growler..." and from then on there is enough action to keep most adventure readers happy, but the author mixes in the initially inadvertent liaison with the senior officer's wife and from them on the campaigns, battles, setbacks and victories are on multiple levels. This is an exciting saga with more or less believable characters caught up in in desperate times and places.

This book is typical Reeman. We have our hero, a Royal Navy pilot, his adventures during WWII. In addition we have the RN senior officer out for himself and not caring who dies in the efforts to advance his career. There are also a less senior officer trying to protect his men, and a young women, married to the most senior officer, who falls in love with our hero. Action ranges from the North Atlantic to the Pacific. Anyone who has read any Reeman and enjoyed it, should enjoy this.

I started reading Douglas Reemans's books in the 1970's. I have always enjoyed them and have now found a new supply for them. If you like war stories I recommend these.

Reeman is great! He portrays the WWII's conflicted warrior in vivid detail! You should read the book, today without fail,

One of Mr Reeman's stories that I enjoy more than the others, but all his stories are good. A worthwhile buy.
Longitude Temporary
very well written and being available on line via Amazon Kimble makes all reading through this mediam very worth while
JOGETIME
Very good but at times the writing is stilted and the dialogue jumps.
Enjoyed it immensely
