Hurricane Squadron book. I had never heard of Robert Jackson until discovering this book but now know he’s a very (nay, incredibly) prolific writer of aviation and military history, over 100 titles at rough count. Most are histories but he's also written about 25 aviation novels. Hurricane Squadron (1978) is the first in the George Yeoman series. Yeoman is a new recruit to the RAF who ends up in France just as the German invasion begins. Jackson effectively illustrates the dangerous life of a fighter pilot.

In Hurricane Squadron we have the beginning of what gives promise of a very well done series. We follow, from the very first page, the arrival of our hero, George Yeoman, to the active theatre of the defense of France in early 1940.
This excellent story follows the growth of George Yeoman from raw rookie to experienced Hurricane pilot. Of particular interest to me was the ability of the author to set the stage for the defense of France in early 1940. His description of the Hurricane aircraft, it’s capabilities and weaknesses demonstrates a level of research that just adds to the appeal of this first book in the series. At times, I had the feeling that I was in the cockpit with our hero. I also believe that the author has some pilot experience as well, it shows in the story.
Although this first installment is rather short, the author leaves you with the desire for more. I look forward to many more adventures with George Yeoman.

This is an excellent first book in the George Yeoman series of novels that sees the young George fighting in France in 1940 as art of the BEF Air Component. It captures the gallantry of those young men who stood in vain against the Blitzkreig, and then went on (well, the survivors did) to fight in the Battle of Britain. Excellent story by an author who understands the RAF

While it's a good story, it is also of the quality I would have read when I was in junior high school, or that age. Nothing challenging here.
