Frederick E Smith, who has died aged 93, wrote the book upon which it was based. He did not consider it to be among his best novels, but acknowledged that it was the one with which his name would always be associated. In the 1956 novel, the (fictional) air squadron is sent to aid the efforts of the Norwegian resistance, originally flying Douglas Boston bombers before they are re-equipped with the Mosquitos that were to become a striking aspect of the film. He continued in this vein, with The Storm Knight (1966), a thriller set in Norway, and A Killing for the Hawks (1966), about a unit of the Royal Flying Corps before and during the battle of Ypres.

I first read "A Killing for the Hawks" in the summer of 1969 after it was first published in 1966. Being a World War 1 air warfare buff and a Viet-Nam Veteran, I found that the novel had captured the wartime atmosphere of excitement, suspense, romance and nostalgia. The author, Mr. Smith had done excellent research and accurately described the aircraft, pilots, mechanics and airfields of that era in time. Even though it is a work of war fiction, the thrill of being in the cockpit during the first "War in the Air" was so spellbinding to my imagination that I could not put this book down! If the reader does not relate nor care about World War 1 air operations then they are wasting their time. This work is for the World War 1 scholars and interested fans who will enjoy it as much as I did when I first read it as I was about to enlist in the U.S. Air Force during the Viet-Nam War. It is a fitting tribute for the 100th anniversary of the First World War.

As per the previous review there is a romance element but this is also a brilliant flying book. Smith was in the RAF in WW2 and understands war flying and the stresses and strains. He captures the experience of WW1 flying very believably and I rate it as one of the top WW1 flying novels, along with "Blue Max" and "Fate is the Hunter". The fact that it has an interesting story, unlike say "Winged Victory", is an added plus.

This center of this story, unlike most war storys, is not about war. " A killing for the Hawks" is almost a romance novel. The story is about Norman McConell, the son of a British couple, who joins the the RFC(Royal Flying Corps) in The First World War. He is assigned to a unit, that has the a British Flying Ace , John Seymour. Along with other characters, like Bush the downtrodden working class man, McConell serves many hours over the front. He also builds up respect for the aristocractic Ace. This respect changes after McConell, accedentally has an affair with Seymour's wife. She confesses that Seymour is a horrible sadist, explaining his extreme pleasure for killing men in areial combat. Seymour finds out about his wife's betrayal and, as he tells her, has a plan to get back at McConell. The books becomes increasingly intense, and it's ending, is totally unpredictable.
