    a masterpiece of war (anti-war?) fiction

    Which side are the good guys on? Deighton is the master of the thriller, no doubt, but with BOMBER, the true and terrible cost of war is brilliantly played out. This makes the book sound very earnest, but it's very much a wonderfully written story about how frightening and terrible war can be and how the smallest mistakes can have unintended results.

    Excellent book

    This is a little known novel now but is a masterful telling of a World War II bombing raid. The scope of the book is fantastic, from numerous RAF bomber crews, Luftwaffe night fighter, crews, ground defenses, and the unfortunate people of the target city.
    Deighton gives an amazing account, and in one book conveys the terror and triumph that is often missed in history books.
