It’s the winter of 1944-45. From an air base in Cambrideshire, England, a group of young American fighter pilots is flying mission after dangerous mission deep into Germany protecting huge fleets of bombers. Two of the pilots are friends: Jamie Farebrother, a well-educated, reserved son of an Air Force General, and Mickey Morse, a wild, cocky flying ace who is unsure of himself.
Deighton lets us live their comeraderie, their love lives, and their flying in light of the “political correctness” of their time.
