NIGHT RAID by Eugene Lohrke


Email this review


A thinly camouflaged personal record posing as fiction, in the story of four hours in the life of a doctor during a night raid in a small English village. Throughout the record of his calls, from laborer to aristocrat, and closing with the raid at its peak, there is reflected the shadow of apprehension, watching, waiting, dominated by quiet doggedness and discipline. The story is told by a journalist who has been in England since 1936, and whose earlier book, Night Over England, had a good press. Sympathetic sensitive writing -- but as a novel, on the thin side.
