This is 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 CLASSIC DOCUMENTARY NOVEL OF WAR
'A massively different novel... The effect is - quite literally - devastating' - Sunday TimesAbout the Author:
Len Deighton was born in London in 1929. At the age of seventeen he became a photographer attached to the R.A.F. Special Investigations Branch. Following his discharge in 1949 he did a variety of jobs and in 1952 won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art. His writing career began with The Ipcress File which was a spectacular success and was made into a classic film starring Michael Caine. Since then his work has gone from strength to strength, varying from espionage novels to war, general fiction and non-fiction. The BBC made Bomber into a day-long radio drama in 'real time'. Deighton's history of World War Two, Blood, Tears and Folly, was published to wide acclaim - Jack Higgins called it 'an absolute landmark'.
