KIRKUS REVIEW

Excellent backdrop of invasion blitz in Poland and the Balkans for a disappointingly mediocre two-barreled love story with David Sedgwick, young cub correspondent of a Chicago paper and (a) a lovely Polish girl, Yashna, his secretary in Warsaw, his companion on the road of escape, whom he encounters -- after separation -- with a notorious Gostapo chief, and later with a young Czech patriot who disappears; (b) a Cocknoy waitress in London, who dresses better than she should, on Claridge pay. Sedgwick never convincingly falls out of love with Yashna nor into love with Polly, but Fate takes a hand, -- Tashna is killed in a blitz in a London night club, while David survives -- and her secret dies with her; and Polly stands by, when he loses his leg, and agrees to take over the war job he had hold at night, while he carries on his fight or the forgotten people in his newspaper work. St. John is so skilled in handling substance of real life in reporting events that one could wish he would how to that line.
