    Though the book's final chapter is unnecessary, and basically unreadable, the rest of the book is a rare document of what it means to commit to giving the greatest sacrifice possible, over and over again. Saint Exupery, in his duty to the French armed forces, made nightly flights over the advancing Nazi forces invading France at a time when one in three planes were shot down. Because of his honest reflections in this book, Charles de Gaulle hated him. The Flight to Arras speaks like no other book.
