Subtitled ""Events relating to the last flight of an R.A.F. bomber over Germany on the night of June 31st, 1943"" this is a 747 rerun over World War II terrain, a documentary which approaches dispassionate, literal, and reaching the inevitable terminus with an authoritative tone of voice--""Close master fuel-cock for starboard outer."" The R.A.F. sends its bombers to gut the heavily industrialized town of Krefeld. Prominent, although unmemorable, participants include Sam Lambert, a British pilot; August Bach, a widower who mans a radar station and has just fallen in love with the nursegirl caring for his child (the latter two will be casualties); and a Junker pilot, yon Lowenherz. whose aide steals and circulates a document exposing the activities at Dachau. Prominent scenes, more memorable, include bombers ablaze and falling; civilians trapped in a crumbling cellar or a hospital; and the aftermath ""sorting out the bodies."" . . . A massive exposure--but then there's Deighton's energetic style to keep you at attention all through the long night of horror.
