Reviews

This is utterly brilliant: a fantastically exciting book about those amazing Harrier jets in the Falklands War but so much more besides. White has a richly drawn cast of unforgettable characters ... this really does read like the best kind of thriller. His best book yet. * James Holland *
Utterly thrilling and totally absorbing. White conveys brilliantly the spirit of a great aircraft - and the men who flew it * Patrick Bishop *
Rowland White has done it again! A compelling, fast-paced narrative that thrusts us into a fascinating cockpit-view of the Falklands War. Harrier 809 provides a true window into a conflict that shaped the modern path of Argentina and the United Kingdom; a "must read" for serious military aviation enthusiasts and historians alike! * Dan Hampton *
Rowland White has scored again. Harrier 809 reads like a fast-paced military adventure novel only better because every word is true. White has brought us an up-close, inside-the-cockpit saga of a band of heroes in the Falklands air war. Riveting. * Robert Gandt *
Set against the broader context of the Falklands War, Harrier 809 brings the squadron's story to life in fine and highly readable style. * Garth Ennis *
