KIRKUS REVIEW

Action account of various services in England -- largely in the air-written in the specialized, understated, offhand vernaculese of the participants. The raid on St. Nazaire, the Cologne bombing --the first pay-off, the sinking of the gun-cruiser which had downed the Bismarck, a daylight attack on Le Havre by Boston Bombers, the Submarine service known as the ""trade"", the Salvation Navy for the rescue of downed pilots, test pilots, ""intruder"" pilots, reconnaissance pilots or the ""W Willies"", convoying, anti-aircraft and the Ferry Command. An uncensored transcription of specific angles of the war in the fighting.
