The Turner Novels -

The Aviators

Real Characters From History Featured in the Will Turner series

The Will Turner novels follow the tradition in historical fiction of introducing real characters from the past.

Just as you expect to meet Admiral Lord Nelson in C. S. Forrester's Hornblower books, or The Duke of Wellington in Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe series, you will find General Trenchard and Manfred von Richtofen, The Red Baron, in the Will Turner stories.

The history of aviation is packed with so many fascinating people that as well as the well known figures of the period, you will meet some of the real unsung heroes and heroines who took their part in creating aviation as we know it today.
