KIRKUS REVIEW

Purporting to be the authentic diary of a German bomber-pilot this has the synthetic feel of anti-Nazi propaganda, with guideposts for interpretation in the foreword. The years of war and bombings of France, Dunkirk, London, Coventry, Birmingham, civilians, convoys night and day flights; lack of human emotions; officers, men, prisoners of war; Gestapo agents in the flying corps; women on call; decorations; death of the pilot's crew; conflicting personalities and ideas; absence of reading matter; hatred of all things not German; crash and Canadian prison camp, etc. A little too pat, though material is vouched for by translator -- nsationalism.
