Truths about being in war that you’ll never get from any history text.
This is a wonderful novel. It is exciting, engaging, gut-wrenching, enjoyable, and sorrowful to read. I looked forward to continuing the story each time I picked it up again.
The best thing about it is that it brings to life what people were experiencing in the First World War. Like Stephen Crane’s The Red Badge of Courage, this novel gives us truths about being in war that you’ll never get from any history text. I could tell that the author had insights — from actually being in the cockpit of an FE2b — that I’ve never picked up in 25 years of studying WWI bombing campaigns.Steve Suddaby – Past President, World War One Historical Association
