     Like you, I have not read "DAMNED GOOD SHOW" either.  Since it is by
Derek Robinson, I say the title says it all:  "Damned good"!

Tracy, Neil, Buz:

Kudos to your literary preferences! :-) I greatly enjoyed all the D.
Robinson books also, although I have not yet read "Damned Good Show":
What is it about?

Another good read is "A Good Clean Fight", which traces Hornet Squadron
and some of it's surviving members to the next war, flying P-40's in the
Western Desert and the birth of the SAS. Chronologically after "Piece of
Cake". Good stuff.

you read the 3rd installment of his WW1 trilogy?  It's called "HORNET'S
STING".  Chronologically it is sandwiched between "WAR STORY" and "GOSHAWK
SQUADRON".  I wish more of his stories would come to the 'Big Screen'.
