 About the Book 

Typical of Shutes work, the story revolves around aviators and their cohorts during WW2. Rich in detail concerning military aircraft and military life in general, it celebrates the character of fairly ordinary people facing extraordinary challenges. The rigid class structure of early 20th century Britain, while slowly being eroded still pervades society -- for example the idea that a young officers military career would be compromised by a marriage below his class is being challenged but is still very much an issue.Nowhere near as compelling as Shutes best work, but still a pleasant read.
