What's this all about?

One Spring in Picardy is a novel without heroes and without heroics. It is a story dominated by machines - the capricious, almost humanly malevolent biplanes the pilots are forced to fly.

 

Beautifully evoked, scrupulously researched to the last technical and historical detail, this is a book that re - creates for the reader another fragment of that hell we know as the First World War.

À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
William Stanley

William Stanley was born in Northumberland ( England ). His love affair with flying started when he was lifted into the cockpit of one of the early Moths. During the Second World War, he joined the R.A.F. and was trained as a bomber pilot, flying Avro Lancasters with No. 3 Group ( Bomber Command ). 


After the war, he then moved to Northern Ireland where he was the maintenance manager for a fibre factory.
