KIRKUS REVIEW

Action stations of the war in England, direct, concise accounts by active combatants, in the air, on the sea, in the streets. Two editors of Life got these stories from all types of people, -- a Sergeant who escaped Dunkirk, an R.A.F. squadron leader who fought over Dunkirk, a Flight Sergeant who bombed the Ruhr, a seaman on a convoy, an officer on a submarine, a doctor at Coventry, a London fireman, a housewife whose house had been bombed. Should have the same sort of marker that Williams' Retreat from Dunkirk has had, plus the fact that a wider range makes a wider appeal.
