"I dream I am flying over forests, then seas, then cities. Then I am
swooping down firing my guns at people. They run through the streets like
frightened sheep, but I roar at them, kill them with my guns. When I have no
more bullets my wings become scythes that cut them down."

skies. In the depths of a forest the pilot of a ME163 rocket-plane battles
not only the formations of allied bombers but a creeping menace that invades
both his body and his mind.
