"Events relating to the last flight of an RAF Bomber over Germany on the night of June 31st, 1943. An RAF bomber crew prepares for a bombing raid on Ruhr in western Germany. Masterful, gripping, and widely considered Len Deighton's greatest novel, Bomber is a minute-by-minute account of what occurs over the next twenty-four hours. Told through the eyes of protagonists on all sides - including the British RAF crew, a Luftwaffe night fighter pilot, and a young German boy - Bomber is an unforgettable portrait of war, both in the air and on the ground"--

About the author

LEN DEIGHTON is considered one of the most important British espionage writers. He has written more than thirty books that range from historical
fiction, dystopian alternative fiction, and brilliant nonfiction on the Second World War.

Summary

Len Deighton — one of the masters of twentieth-century
espionage fiction — combines his expertise as both historian and novelist in Bomber,
the classic World War II novel that relates, in devastating detail, the
twenty-four-hour story of an allied bombing raid.


Skilled Royal Air Force bomber pilot Sam Lambert is
exhausted, and his veteran crewmen have just been replaced by an inexperienced
new team. Victor von Löwenherz, a German night fighter pilot who intercepts RAF
bombers in his Junkers Ju 88, looks on with horror at the Nazi regime. And
Hansl, a German boy in the small market town of Altgarten, sleeps at home. Lambert
and his crew prepare for a bombing raid on the Ruhr area. It’s a night that
many will never forget.

Bomber is a masterful, gripping, minute-by-minute
account of what occurs over the next twenty-four hours. Told through the eyes
of protag­onists on all sides and astonishingly precise in its depictions of
planes, weapons, and behind-the-scenes war strategy, this is Len Deighton at
his best. An unforgettable portrait of war, both in the air and on the ground.
