KIRKUS REVIEW

PM's English correspondent reveals a quick, young, first rate reportorial talent in his impressions of England at war. It has something of the flavor of Claire Boothe, a facility for picking up what the men and women are feeling, thinking, saying, in all classes of life. London prepares for war -- Plymouth -- the R.A.F. -- August in Dover under the first stiff barrages -- the Battle of London -- Dublin -- Coventry. First hand conversations with men at the top. This has real vitality and transmits a sense of actuality. Covers a briefer span than Murrow's book, and is more surface reporting than interpretation.
