Description
 
This  little-known but extraordinary novel depicts the long-range bomber campaigns waged by the Navy against Japanese targets along the coasts of Asia in World War II. Especially well captured are the pilots’ emotions, both their terror in moments of extreme peril and their elation upon returning from successful patrols. Overall, seldom if ever has an author so comprehensively conveyed the experience of piloting a large aircraft in wartime. In addition, the novel powerfully evokes the smells, the tastes, the sounds, the whole feel of being in a bomber squadron in the South Pacific in the last year of the war. Includes penetrating description of the social interplay among the main character’s close comrades. Map.
