    I have now finished reading all 5 of the books in this series. I can say the author spins an entertaining yarn. While I suppose each of these books could be a stand alone read, I recommend they be read in order to get the most out of them. In general, I think the author's writing style and his development of the main characters probably would appeal to a much younger audience. For me, they were too simplistic and did not really evolve much as I progressed through the series. The battle scenes in I have now finished reading all 5 of the books in this series.

In general, I think the author's writing style and his development of the main characters probably would appeal to a much younger audience. For me, they were too simplistic and did not really evolve much as I progressed through the series. The battle scenes in the air were also not realistic. As a pilot, I felt the author really fell short when it came to describing flying in realistic terms. Having flown in a combat aircraft, the capabilities he gave both to the hero and to the aircraft were unrealistic. The author made some historical errors when it came to certain technological developments in the war. He introduced new equipment and weapons too early which detracted from the historicity of the books. Overall, as far as a historical fiction goes, these books were disappointing. I know the author is an accomplished author so I just wonder if he chose the wrong mode of combat in these books - one he was less familiar with which handicapped his writing somewhat.

    Harsker, Hosker, and The End Hosker is the name of the author, of course, and Harsker, the name of our hero, sound very similar! The Hosker Heroes all have British steel courage and very human sensitivities,mostly unaware of their own heroism. By 1918 Harsker's Squadron had lost 80 pilots. You get a front row seat flying paper thin airplanes attacking each other with machine guns! Great book!

    A thoroughly enjoyable series I am sad to have this thoroughly enjoyable series end. Wonderful characters wrapped in light, easy reading and historical interest.

    Good Read The conclusion of Hosker's series about the British flyers over France in WWI. Includes some views of the home front and the bitter loss of many flyers.
