Description

For a brief moment, while waiting for the control tower to clear me for take - off, I glanced out through the perspex cockpit canopy at the surrounding German countryside. It lay white and crisp beneath the crackling December moon.

 

Behind me lay the boundary fence of the Royal Air Force base, and beyond the fence, as I had seen while swinging my little fighter into line with the take - off runway, the sheet of snow covering the flat farmland stretched away to the line of the pine trees, two miles distant in the night yet so clear I could almost see the shapes of the trees themselves.

 

Ahead of me as I waited for the voice of the controller to come through the headphones was the runway itself, a slick black ribbon of tarmac, flanked by twin rows of bright - burning lights, illuminating the solid path cut earlier by the snow - ploughs. ( ... )

À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
Frederick Forsyth

Frederick McCarthy Forsyth C.B.E. ( August 25th, 1938 ) was born in Ashford ( Kent, England ). He was educated at Tonbridge School ( Kent, England ) and later attended the University of Granada ( Andalusia, Spain ). 


Frederick Forsyth completed his National Service in the Royal Air Force as a pilot where he flew the de Havilland Vampire. He joined Reuters in 1961 and later the BBC in 1965, where he served as an assistant diplomatic correspondent. 


His early career was spent covering French affairs and the attempted assassination of Charles de Gaulle ( 1890 - 1970 ). Then, in 1967, he spent six months reporting on the Nigerian Civil War between Biafra and Nigeria. Because it was not the BBC's policy to cover this war ( The Vietnam War was raging ), he quit and flew out there, and stayed there for most of the next two years. He thus returned to Biafra as a freelance reporter, writing his first book : The Biafra Story ( 1969 ). 


Frederick Forsyth decided to write a novel using similar research techniques to those used in journalism. His first full - length novel, The Day of the Jackal, was published in 1971. In January 2018, it was announced that Frederick Forsyth would publish his eighteenth novel, a thriller about computer hackers. In October 2018, The Fox was published in electronic format and was released in hardcover in November. 


Concerning his political views, Frederick Forsyth is a Eurosceptic Conservative. He is Patron of Better Off Out, an organisation calling for Britain's withdrawal from the European Union and supports Brexit.
