KIRKUS REVIEW

The day to day account of a 29 year old glider pilot for the British, (a German who escaped to England after imprisonment for anti-Nazi opinions) of the first flight to Holland, which in simple, unheroic manner gives a telling picture of war on a concentrated sl, as the airborne operation is not successful, the men can only present a makeshift defense, backed with vigilant patrol and the ability to do the right things automatically. September 17 to 24, 1944 is the time, the objective was the bridge at Arnhem -- and retreat, almost hopeless, was the result. An effective, unaccented account.
