Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
YA-- The story of the buildup and growth of the airplane industry and the Air Force is well told in this fictional account of World War II. Fight scenes between aircraft are taut and dramatic, many real people make an appearance, and lots of descriptive data about the types of airplanes being built and their problems is included. While the focus is on the growth of the American industry, problems of the German expansion of their aircraft manufacturing are well covered also. Unfortunately, the dialogue between the men and women is somewhat trite, and the fictional characters are stereotyped. The men are very manly, and the good women stay home and cheer their men on. Those women who work are portrayed as cold and calculating. Even so, Boyne has captured the mood of the times, and there's a lot of technological information sure to please aviation buffs and students interested in the attitudes and events of this period. --Pat Royal, Crossland High School, Camp Springs, MD
