The little white bird So little does the sex know of beauty

The little white bird. Or adventures in kensington gardens. The little white bird contents. And if David asks why I decline, I explain that it is because I have no desire to meet the woman. Come this time, father, he urged lately, for it is her birthday, and she is twenty-six, which is so great an age to David, that I think he fears she cannot last much longer. So little does the sex know of beauty. Surely a spirited old lady may be the prettiest sight in the world. For my part, I confess that it is they, and not the young ones, who have ever been my undoing.

  • David Beatty was there and did that! A great novel of events as he may have seen them. Super good flying book about anti sum ops with the RAF. A TEN!

  • A wartime coastal command station in North East Scotland during WW2 is the setting for this absorbing novel of the day to day workings of the unit.

    It consists of 7 Liberator aircraft crews under the command of the charismatic Guy Strickland, and his thoughts and doings are writ large in this book, especially his relations to his superiors, fellow officers and also his new raw recruit Peter Irvine, who he sees as needing to be toughened up.

    Another shadow writ large is the destroyer Groningen, which Guy wants eliminated due to its baleful influence on merchant shipping in the area.

    The love lives of the station crew are also much mentioned, and one can only admire the brave men who fought in the war as aircrew such as these were seemingly cannon fodder, here today and often gone the next.

    No one does flying scenes better than Beaty and his assured touch is displayed throughout the story.

    The climax of this engrossing story is the attack on the Groningen by the Liberators as it leaves its safe harbour in Norway.
