Double Eagle | Book by Dan Abnett | Official Publisher Page | Simon & Schuster

Some of the scenery is breathtaking and the despite the imminent war coming to this world you will find yourself wanting to have a cup of your favourite beverage in the wind and sea swept cafe on the bombed out pier that some of doubls story focuses on. Also, you won’t have many commissars if you’re reading a book about fighter pilots, I mean, that makes sense.

Hate speech, trolling, and aggressive behavior will not be tolerated, and may result in a ban. Abnett wasted an excellent opportunity to create a small, elite cadre of enemy pilots who might have shed some much welcome light and understanding on the chaos psyche.

I could feel all the losses and exult in the victories as though I were there. This book, as with all his others, is truly a page-turner.

Oct 06, Paulo “paper duble always” Carvalho rated it it was amazing Shelves: Double Eagle reads less like a novel and more like an authentic World War II chronicle of an aerial campaign over Europe or in the Pacific. I would enjoy more of the Phantine XX eaagle stories, but Abnett is not afraid to kill off characters, and some good ones actually lived!

Published August 9th by Black Library Publishing first published In Britain, German aircraft began with raids on British convoys and aircraft.

This is really my favorite part of the book. It’s in the timeline of Gaunt’s Ghosts but doesn’t include them. Nothing feels Warhammer yet. I thought the “bats” were daemons but as far as I can tell, they’re just enemy planes.


The overall plot is detailed and air combat is well illustrated, however the personalities of the characters are shallow and can be related to only to an extent.

Most of their number are the veterans of the Phantine liberation such as Bree Jagdea, commander of Umbra Flight, and the fatalistic Oskar Viltry, a Marauder pilot who believes he already should have died twice over.

Double Eagle

On Enothis, chaos forces bombed straggling Imperial land forces, before progressing onto coastal villages. In fact, there are some references to the Ghosts storyline, but not so that the reader is left confused. The guard members aren’t treated as disposable, there’s no sign of mechanicus or commissars or anything, and the sole appearance of “chaos” so far was completely devoid of anything chaosy. Great doublle of an ensemble cast, excellent portrayal of the cost war exacts even on the survivors.

Daemonic forces push into Imperial territory, thousands of refugees flee across the deserts and an infamous Chaos-tainted pilot, Khrel Kas Obarkonrules the sky, his skill in the cockpit matched only by his kill tally. It’s a novel about 40k fighter pilots, so a lot of the standard 40k conventions won’t apply. May 27, Thomas rated it it was amazing. The dozens of doible and Billions of lives spent so that the fights that need Chapters of Space Marines are kept as few as possible, that is the sort of novel we often see from them.

There is a great deal of air combat, which Abnett delivers with exquisite skill.


Welcome to Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum! By clicking ‘Sign me up’ I acknowledge that I have read and agree to the privacy policy and terms of use. I don’t have a lot of experience with the aerial-combat, fighter-ace genre, but the language and readability of the protracted dogfighting scenes seems like it would have cross-genre appeal. A true fun and enjoiable reading! Its a rare book for the 40k universe, if not the only one dealing with aerial combat and this increases its appeal.

It was alright but I definitely missed the lovecraftian elements of 40k that Abnett had worked into some of his other stories.

Allied with the Imperial forces, the remnants of the Enothian air force don’t seem to be able to offer much. 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. A break from the usual war stories in the Warhammer universe. Science Fiction Science Fiction.

Looking for beautiful books? Review quote So believable you can almost feel the eavle G forces – SciFi. ISBN ebook: I stuck with it though, and it paid off! I believe a couple others are but it’s been a while since I read it. It’s pretty standard for Dan Abnett and the Sabbat Worlds Crusade – he’s abnett another side of the 40K universe, that with the scale of the universe a lot of the time there’s not space marines or chaos space marines or aliens, it’s regular soldiers fighting evil regular soldiers.

As a fan of the Warhammer 40k universe, this was a nice change up from the usual space battle flair.
