9780008124861: Bomber

The classic novel of the Second World War that relates in devastating detail the 24-hour story of an allied bombing raid.

Bomber is a novel of war. There are no victors, no vanquished. There are simply those who remain alive, and those who die.

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, both 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 equally acclaimed as a novelist and as an historian. In Bomber he has combined both talents to produce a masterpiece.

Review:

‘A massively different novel… the effect is – quite literally – devastating’ Sunday Times

‘A massive and superbly mobilised tragedy of the machines which men make to destroy themselves. Masterly and by far Mr Deighton’s best’. Douglas Hurd, The Spectator

‘A magnificent story… the characters lean out of the pages’ Daily Mirror

‘For sheer readability he has no peer’
The Standard

'The magnificent Bomber is rich with historical detail' The Times
