A novel by

1940. The Battle of Britain.

In the skies over the Channel, young men were proving their courage to the enemy, to their comrades, and to themselves.

And the R.A.F. and the Luftwaffe are in a fight to the death - with the future of Europe at stake.

The British Officer Peter Knight and German Leutnant Erich Hafner have battled it out time and again and now they can identify one another's planes.

For both men, the war has become personal.

And each man is stalking his own special prey.

As their final deadly showdown looms it starts to affect the whole of 172 Squadron.

Will Peter manage to shoot down Erich and lead the British squadron to victory?

Or will his personal vendetta end in disaster for the entire unit?

'Summer of No Surrender' is an action-packed war thriller pitting one man's personal mission against the fate of the Battle of Britain. It is perfect for fans of Alistair MacLean and Jack Higgins.
