The classic documentary war novel, now back in print due to strong demand from fans of Len Deighton.
‘Bomber’ follows the progress of an Allied air raid through a period of twenty-four hours in the summer of 1943.
It portrays all the participants in a terrifying drama, in the air and on the ground, in Britain and in Germany.
In its documentary style, it is unique. In its emotional power, it is overwhelming.
Len Deighton has been hugely acclaimed both as a novelist and as an historian. In ‘Bomber’ he has combined both talents to produce a masterpiece.
As Max Hastings observed, Deighton captured a time and a mood in his books – 'To those of us who were in our twenties in the 1960s, his books seemed the coolest, funkiest, most sophisticated things we'd ever read' – and his books have now deservedly become classics.

'The self-conscious cool of Deighton's writing has dated in the best way possible…a stone-cold cold war classic.' Guardian
Praise for Funeral in Berlin:
'A ferociously cool fable, even better than The Spy Who Came In From the Cold'

'A most impressive book in which the tension, more like a chronic ache than a sharp stab of pain, never lets go.'
