Overview

A moving story of love and loyalty, courage and fear, based on Rattigan's own experiences as a tail gunner in the Second World War.

1942. The Falcon Hotel, on the Lincolnshire coast. RAF bomber pilot Teddy is celebrating a reunion with his actress wife Patricia. When Peter, Patricia's ex-lover and Hollywood heart-throb, arrives and an urgent bombing mission over Germany is ordered, Patricia finds herself at the centre of an emotional conflict as unpredictable as the war in the skies.

This edition contains an authoritative introduction by Rattigan scholar Dan Rebellato.
