Back to it...

Well, after a bit of a delay with settling into our house here in West Wyalong, we're almost fully unpacked. Once I find my notes for Kristen Alexander's wonderful latest work, Jack Davenport Beaufighter Leader, I'll write the review. Steve Lewis' Chasing Shadows is also ready to write so I'll be able to hit the ground running and get the blog active again with a couple of quick posts.

If you are looking for a new book to sink your teeth into, I strongly recommend both of the above. Some correlation given both pilots are Australian and flew Beaufighters but that's where the similarity ends - anti-shipping strikes and night interceptions respectively. Both books are intelligently and descriptively written - different styles - and comprehensively illustrated (CS in particular goes well beyond the norm when it comes to illustrations).

Two beautiful books about two remarkable men (and there's a good love story in each!).
