The events are well connected throughout the book and many of the characters well involved. But he does leave some unfinished parts; what happens to Virginie, needs to finish tying in Jillian rather than leave one to assume and the part dealing with antiaircraft officer is not needed.
Worth the $10.
The story. Again, excellent. The history behind these young men (and women), the planes they used, the circumstances surrounding this time frame, et cetera - all well done. I thoroughly enjoyed the "story" of each character and how they interacted with each other. There were some shockers in there; war is hell, no? I also liked the hint of "espionage" involved.
"Nor the Years Condemn", to me, was a fantastic read. I can but recommend this book to others and impatiently await Justin's next work.

I have never been in a war personally, never flew a plane, have never lost someone I care about to a violent death, but I found myself relating to the characters in such a way that I felt their fear, anger, love, loss and determination in a way that moved me.
There were many parts of this book I found particularly enjoyable, but my favorite would have to be the character development of the main character, and particularly powerful was his connection and communication with his younger brother throughout the story. It struck a chord with me.
I couldn’t imagine changing anything about his book, except to say I’d like it to not end. But I guess all good things must come to an end. Thank goodness there’s a sequel!
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys action, drama, history and character driven stories. I’ll be reading a lot more from Mr Sheedy!
The characters feel so real, we are sure they must have existed. The flying is portrayed so brilliantly, we feel an ace fighter pilot must have possessed Justin's head while he wrote this. The planes themselves become characters, even though mere machines, they became tools of victory and a symbol of ingenuity, technology and bloody determination. This is a testament to the research undertaken by the author and his wordsmithing we see as the end result.
We should count ourselves lucky today that the whole world has not since been embroiled in a such conflict and we hope it never will be again. Recounting the bravery of these men, and the staggering odds against their surviving, should make us never forget.
We will remember them.
it is even greater becouse it deals with the flying of two of the most emblematic planes of England during WWII, the Spitfire and the might Typhoon!!!!!!!
I apreciated it very much and send the warmest regards to autor for the nice job done; as a sugesttion for second issue, some sketches made in pencil would be a nice addition to book.
I liked it very much
