''Jack D. Hunter, who served as an American agent behind the German lines in World War II, writes with impressive authority about Germans and with absolutely astounding authority about the combat airplanes of World War I. His story moves fast and includes much tersely eloquent conversation.'' --New York Times
''The surface of this brooding novel is the story of a young German air ace in WWI. Deeper layers address ambition, corruption, media manipulation, the causes of WWII, and alcoholism. Tom Parker's (Grover Gardner's) reading, which seems a little flat at first, proves effortlessly engaging as the listener becomes absorbed in a story so well written that it needs little interpretive assistance. Parker (Gardner) is one of those readers who can become transparent, leaving no distinct impression of themselves, only the text. This is no small accomplishment, requiring as it does an execution free of any distracting flaws. An AudioFile Earphones Award winner.'' --AudioFile
