4.0 out of 5 stars A convincing portrait, 18 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Summer of No Surrender (Kindle Edition)
One of the first 'grown up' books I ever read was Richard Bickers' biography of Battle of Britain ace Ginger Lacey, so when Summer of no Surrender came up for free on the Kindle store I downloaded it in a flash.

The novel is an account of the air war of 1940. Bickers was an RAF officer himself and he paints a convincing portrait of the physical and mental strains placed on young men who go to work each day not knowing if they're going to return. Told from both sides of the conflict, the story highlights that, although enemies, British and German aircrews had a lot in common.

The ending felt rather unresolved and some of the text feels rather dated, partly because it reflects the values of its time. Also this book is another victim of a Kindle edition being created from an inadequately proof read OCR scan.
