Under a Shrieking Sky

A novel by

France, 1917.

British Captain Aird returns to the battlefield following his wedding to Rose, and resumes his battle with the German pilot Bothfeld, at a time when the airborne battles begin the two sides begin to intensify.

As the Germans bring their new Albatros airplane into play, the Allies begin to lose their lead in the war, with the life expectancy of British soldiers reduced to just three weeks. The pilots of the R.F.C face a tough battle, losing many of their men along the way, before the arrival of their own new aircraft sees a turn in their luck.

Will Aird survive these new tests?

Or will the advent of these new German planes mean that Aird suffers the same fate as many of his fallen pals?

'Under A Shrieking Sky' is filled with detailed descriptions of air combat which are not for the faint hearted, as the British battle against the German Fokkers in this dramatic account of the final years of the First World War.

The third and final installation in The Heracles Trilogy, Under A Shrieking Sky, tells a tale of conflict from two sides.
