Double Eagle sees the focus put on the pilots of the Imperium, specifically a group of fighter- and bomber-pilots who were first seen in one of the Gaunt’s Ghosts novels. Adams rated it liked it. Un remake de van Bataille de l’Atlantique. Fox rated it it was amazing. And this book even more so than the Gaunt’s Ghosts books or even Titanicus – you can tell this was more of a side project for him.
The story is solid and doesn’t let you go. Thousands of ealge flee the dark armies and the infamous Chaos fighter pilot Khrel Kas Obarkon is always hunting the skies for more prey Log in and join the community. He has also written the Ravenor and Eisenhorn books, the most recent dann which is The Magos. I highly recommend reading the Eisenhorn and then Ravenor books – gives you a very believable and real insight of just how varied the Imperium can be.
Figure it this way: Although I initially enjoyed the book at first, writing this dagle, I realize some of the drawbacks in the novel.
It’s in the timeline of Gaunt’s Dougle but doesn’t include them. The storyline is rather str This is a Warhammer 40k book that I got from my brother, from his favorite author.
Price may vary by retailer. It sounds like you just don’t enjoy the less fantastic elements of 40k.

Books by Dan Abnett. Sometimes there aren’t any daemons. Dan Abnett has a gift for drawing parallels between Warhammer 40, and recent history, and ‘Double Eagle’ is no different. Abnett does an excellent job of describing everything, from landscape to aircraft, to combat and beyond. You lose the pilot, you lose the machine and that’s a big deal. Sabbat Worlds 3 books. On Enothis, the enemy are threatening to halt the Imperial advance.
Great characterization of an ensemble cast, excellent portrayal of the cost war exacts even on the survivors. Apr 04, Alex Jones rated it liked it. Dec 28, Rob Lepley rated it it was amazing. If you do end up wanting more grimdarky, lovecraft-esque stuff, Eisenhorn and Ravenor would probably be more up your alley.
Makes Double Eagle seem much more connected to the 40k universe in my opinion. Most Warhammer novels are of the “short character development and then lots of red mist from exploding bodies” sort.
He lives and works in Maidstone, Kent. Looking for beautiful books?
This character had a great deal of potential but sadly, that potential was never really realized. A pilot is much better trained than your standard guardsman and in control of an extremely valuable piece of technology whether it’s a Marauder, a Thunderbolt, or a Can. As with any Abnett book I would avoid getting attached to any of the characters.
The Imperial Guard aren’t treated as disposable. In that respect, the lack of depth in the enemy is perfect. Sep 10, Daniel rated it it was amazing.
