Hullo Russia, Goodbye England Summary

Hullo Russia, Goodbye England by Derek Robinson

Flight Lieutenant Silk, a twice-decorated Lancaster pilot in WW II, rejoins the R.A.F. and qualifies to fly the Vulcan bomber. Piloting a Vulcan is an unforgettable experience: no other aircraft comes close to matching its all-round performance. And as bombers go, it's drop-dead gorgeous. But there's a catch. The Vulcan has only one role: to make a second strike. To act in retaliation for a Russian nuclear attack. Silk knows that knows that if he ever flies his Vulcan in anger, he'll be flying from a smoking wasteland, a Britain obliterated. But in the mad world of Mutually Assured Destruction, the Vulcan is the last - the only - deterrent. Derek Robinson returns with another rip-roaring, gung-ho R.A.F. adventure, one that exposes and confronts the brinkmanship and sabre-rattling of the Cold War Era.

Hullo Russia, Goodbye England Reviews

'His prose and his dialogue...are unimprovably taut and crackling with wit... Robinson knows what he's doing, trust me' Nicholas Lezard, Guardian. * Guardian *
'A dark but hugely enjoyable novel about the nuclear age ... Echoing the style of Joseph Heller's Catch 22, this is a real page-turner' Matthew Nixson, News of the World. * News of the World *
