ROWLAND WHITE lives in London with his wife and two children, and works in publishing. "From the Hardcover edition."
"Aircraft carriers, jet fighters and a crisis on the other side of the world. Who could ask for more? It takes an obscure corner of British military history and weaves a story as gripping as any Tom Clancy thriller. It's completely riveting."-- Jeremy Clarkson"From the cockpit of a fighter jet to the violently pitching deck of an aircraft carrier at night, Rowland White combines pulse-pounding tension with riveting detail. If only all military history was written like this." --Andy McNab, author of Brave Two Zero"From the Hardcover edition."
