Book Description

In a few days it will be Christmas, 1941. The US has just joined the war, but only a few American volunteers have reached England yet. The Royal Air Force still fights a lonely battle against the Luftwaffe bombers, as they have for two years. One of the veterans of that fight, pilot Nigel Turner, is back after a bad injury, his body mostly healed but his spirit gravely hurt. His brother is dead, his mother is dead, and nearly all his friends are dead. His hands tremble when he lights a cigarette. He flies, defending London against the bombers, and waits for what seems inevitable – his own death in the sky. But a Christmas miracle is about to happen to this brave, almost-broken man. Read on… And after you finish, you may want to read the two sequels. Part Two: In London is filled with intense air combat action praised by veteran pilots as some of the best ever written -- and a holiday in blacked-out London. Part Three: In Cairo takes Nigel to the North African desert war, where he plays a crucial role just before the battle of El Alamein. Both are available on Amazon Kindle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short story 17 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was such a let down. Good story, all the right content and it was all over in half an hour. I like a book that I can get into. Think about the story and characters while I am going about my every day business, but this one was ended before I had even got into it. Is there no way that the web site can tell you how many pages there are in a book. After all with a real book you can see the number of pages, and tell how thick a book is, far more honest.

This was a typical family in the war time. Hardship and family troubles. Well written. Having been brought up in this era could identify with it

5.0 out of 5 stars a truly believable tale of wartime 2 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved this story, I was nine when the war ended and had lived through the war years a few miles from Marham airfield. even at that age! I was aware of the war in the air and the inevitable crashes! injuries and occasionally the death of a pilot. This story captures the real feel of the time. thank you.
