⋼ Hardcover Download 遼 Hornet Flight  ᓕ ePUB Author Ken Follett ᠉ ⋼ Hardcover Download 遼 Hornet Flight ᓕ ePUB Author Ken Follett ᠉ An old fashioned tale of ordinary people thrown into the drama and danger of war, Hornet Flight is a rippingly good read The time is 1941, and British bombers attacking Germany are being blown out of the sky in horrific numbers How do the Nazis know they re coming The answer is an infant technology called radar, and the Brits with help from the Danish Resistance must figure out how and where the German radar stations operate. Follett, an old pro at World War II storytelling, vividly evokes the period, creating a sense not of historical re creation but of urgently unfolding news His cast of characters is memorable, including Harald Olufsen, a brainy 18 year old pulled into the Resistance half against his will, and typically for Follett several central, well drawn women The plot does have some predictable elements for example, from the time Harald first encounters a tiny wood and linen biplane called a Hornet Moth, half rotted and stored away in a Danish barn, we know that it will heroically take to the skies Then, when the very outcome of the war begins to turn on Harald getting a certain roll of film from Denmark to England, well you can see where things are headed But it s great fun to watch them develop, and Follett throws in just enough unexpected shocks to keep you off balance Though it lacks the intensity of Eye of the Needle, Follett s finest and best known book, Hornet Flight offers generous helpings of suspense and a climax that could hardly be satisfying Nicholas H AllisonBestselling Welsh author Follett has made a career out of the WWII suspense thriller Eye of the Needle Jackdaws , and he hits the mark again with this dramatic and tragic tale of amateur spies pursued by Nazi collaborators in occupied Denmark in 1941 Harald Olufsen is an 18 year old physics student who stumbles into espionage when he accidentally discovers a secret German radar installation on the island where he lives The British do not know the Germans have radar and cannot understand why British nighttime bomber losses are so high When Harald learns there is a fledgling Danish resistance group called the Nightwatchmen, he becomes involved through his older brother, Arne, a happy go lucky Danish army pilot Harald photographs the secret radar site, but the spy group quickly unravels under the pressure of Danish police detective Peter Flemming, an officious, ruthless, and arrogant cop who hates the Olufsen family for a public humiliation his father suffered years before The amateur spy network underestimates the police with tragic and deadly results, and soon Harald and his Jewish girlfriend, Karen, must plan a desperate aerial escape to get the photographs to England Follett starts out fast and keeps up the pace, revealing how ordinary people who want to do the right thing are undone by their own enthusiasm and inexperience He also paints a vivid and convincing picture of life in occupied Denmark, of easy collaboration with the Nazis and of the insidious, creeping persecution of the Jews Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc.
