Seamlessly blending scenes of domestic bliss, political intrigue, and the fortunes of war, this novel captures the thrills and perils of the great aerial battles over Europe and North Africa in World War II. As a young, dashing, aristocratic fighter-pilot in Hitler’s Luftwaffe, Peter von Vorzik's life story is told through journal entries and letters of correspondence with his family in this wartime epic. Through the eyes of a German flyboy, this touching and memorable novel couples a cornucopia of airplane lore with the heroism and heartbreak of war.
