              Strike and Strike Again (Hardback, 2nd Second Hardcove ed.)

              455 Squadron RAAF was the sole Australian strike squadron in RAF Coastal Command, and flew the formidable Bristol Beaufighter, armed with 20 mm cannon, bombs and rockets. A salvo of eight of these rockets could smash through a large merchant ship and send it to the bottom. As par...t of the devastating strike wings of Coastal Command, 455 Squadron attacked German shipping off Holland and Denmark, and in Norwegian fiords. Here some of the fiercest battles were fought, the strike squadrons diving into concentrated automatic flak, among defending Focke-Wulfs and over merciless freezing waters. The deep fiords, with precipitous rocky sides, were unforgiving; precise flying was necessary for survival. 455 Squadron, 'the Viking Boys', mastered some of the most demanding and perilous operational flying of the war. This history describes the men who flew, the ground crews who gave unstinting support, and includes full appendices of personnel, aircraft on strength and operations. 'The type of work carried out by this Squadron is akin to that of the Viking - short sharp swoops across the sea by a compact, well armed force... The spirit of the Australians is like that of the Vikings, adventurous and free.' 455 Squadron Commanding Officer, Jack Davenport

              If you're a couple of European white swans, it's hard work surviving in the wild - finding food, bringing up families, getting through freezing weather and everything else. It helps a lot though if you have managed to find a good safe stretch of water to live in, like the moat ar...ound the city of Ypres in Belgium. But when the humans suddenly start fighting a war with bombs and big guns right where your home is, life gets a lot more difficult. The two swans had to choose: leave their home, or stay and face the dangers of the guns that were destroying everything around them. They took the brave course and carried on with their natural lives under fire. Their courage and beauty became an inspiration to the soldiers fighting the war. But could something like that really happen? Perhaps it really did ... Writers Jeff Hatwell (No Ordinary Determination; Brave Days) and Elspeth Langford (Miss D) join with artist Catherine Gordon to craft this dramatic yet touching story of the First World War for young readers.
