Sea Strike

(1980)
A novel by

 
1940. The Allies are losing the continent.

A Blenheim Wing of Coastal Command stand ready.


The Station Commander is obsessed with a promotion for himself. A promotion that can only be won by the air crews he insanely sacrifices despite heavy casualties.

The Squadron Commander is wracked by the horrors to which he commits his men. His self-confidence is destroyed and he suffers from an erosion of his own mental and physical stamina as he shares their dangers.

The squadron's pilots, observers and air gunners are weary, dogged and unfailingly brave. They know that an under-strength R.A.F., further depleted daily in battle, is all that stands between Britain and defeat.

They back up Fighter Command by patrolling the Dunkirk beaches, doing a job for which bombers were never intended.

They share Bomber Command's task of attacking heavily defended land targets

They strike against enemy ships and hunt U-boats

In Sea Strike Bickers provides a fictional tribute, to the little-known deeds of Coastal Blenheim crews who did as much to save Britain in 1940 as the famous "Few".

Richard Townshend Bickers volunteered for the RAF on the outbreak of the second world war and served, with a Permanent Commission, for eighteen years. He wrote a range of military fiction and non-fiction books, including Torpedo Attack, My Enemy Came Nigh, Bombing Run and Summer of No Surrender.
