Having reviewed ten previous stories of Kydd and Renzi, this latest book is as fresh as the first to be published and takes the author one story past his original intention to write only ten tales with these two characters. This book is different from the previous ten volumes. Stockwin has included his trademark technology item although it is more of a supporting anecdote. There are twists and turns to keep the reader guessing
The author has captured the life and times of Rhys Davids very well and this book is a fitting tribute not just to one pilot of the Great War, but to a generation of young men. Their untimely passing was to have a lasting effect on their countries.
This new edition covers the Western coast of France bordering the Bay of Biscay and matches the high standard already achieved by the Cruising Companion series. For those who have yet to use a Wiley Nautical Cruisng Companion, this volume is an indispensable aid in planning a voyage to or through the stretch of coast.
The author provides a personal insight into what is now a lost world. He describes operations and the Sunderland aircraft, together with the way of life. There are black and white images through the text and two colour plate sections.
