Landfall Reviews

A story that grips the reader with its quiet veracity, its truth to character, its understanding of the young man of the R.A.F and the nature of their job, of the so much owing so many to so few. The story has pace and excitement, unforced sentiment and wholly unaffected gaiety...Alive, humourous and finely restrained in feeling throughout...fascinating descriptions of Service operations...thrilling and eloquent * Times Literary Supplement *
A admirably good story, full of drama and good humour * Evening Standard *
A good simple story...genuinely moving * New Statesman *
Direct, simple, wholly free from highfalutin nonsense and entirely charming * Daily Mail *
Exciting reading of war on land and in the air * kirkus reviews *
