To So Few - In the Beginning 

The first book of the TO SO FEW series of historical novels.

                       BRIAN DRUMMOND WAS an accomplished aviator in his 17th year on the Great Plains of Kansas.   He learned well and honed his instinctive skills under the expert tutelage of Malcolm Bainbridge, a decorated ace from the Great War.  Brian also acquired from Malcolm a keen sense of world events evolving in Europe and Asia.  Brian’s mentor also had an influential brother-in-arms from the War to End All Wars – RAF Group Captain John Spencer – who is also a cousin of Winston Churchill.  Brian sees and feels what they see, and he sets his course. As soon as he graduates from high school, Brian Drummond will join the RAF to fly the new monoplane fighters.  So begins the story of flight and a warrior’s life.

Peter Gipson [the first review of Beginning]:
"This volume opens the World War 2 adventure of the young Kansas lad Brian Drummond who has an acute passion and ability for flying. Despite pleas from his parents he has only one dream, to emulate the career of his First World War RFC. veteran and elderly friend and join The Royal Air Force. At this mentor’s hands he learns the flying skills to survive aerial combat. Interspersed with these exciting chapters we read of the activities in the British Government where despite appeasement, certain politicians are facing the reality that war is looming. During this period we read of Polish and British Special Agents and their attempt to capture a German Enigma device. The distant rumblings of impending war in Europe echo through the plains of Kansas, what will the young Drummond do?"
