New York 1996, St. Martin's Pr, US First edition ,hard bound in dust jacket, VG+/VG + condition,(very light dj wear at edges) 6x9, 367 pages. Full wrap around cover art by Geoff Hunt. ---------------------------------------------- Few historical novelists have ever embarked on a project as challenging as John Biggins's series of World War I adventure novels. And few have received such eager accolades: Reviewers from The New York Times to Publishers Weekly have praised this exciting writer as a vital and worthy successor to the mantles of Patrick O'Brian and C. S. Forester.--------------------------------------- The Two-Headed Eagle is the breakout book in Biggins's series: a story of five months of hair-raising adventure on the Italian front in which young Otto Prohaska, the hero of A Sailor of Austria and The Emperor's Coloured Coat, entrusts his life to the nascent, unreliable, and terrifying Imperial and Royal Austro-Hungarian Flying Service. It is the summer of 1916, and Otto, joined by his self-willed aerial chauffeur Sergeant-Pilot Toth, entrusts his life to a succession of flimsy biplanes in the sky above war-torn Alpine battlefields. On the ground, the rickety Habsburg empire has begun its final slide to disaster. And in the air is the unmistakable sense that history, poignant and ironic and always surprising, is erupting all around them. Written with craft, style, and an astonishing breadth of emotion, The Two-Headed Eagle is the continuation of a remarkable series. N° de ref. de la librería 39185
