Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In the aerial arena of World War II, American Billy Hochreiter and German Rolf Schiller clash briefly as Rolf sends Billy's fighter crashing, forcing Billy to eject. The two don't meet again in combat until later, but their journeys toward God run parallel; both lose the women they love and begin to question their roles in the deadly dance of war. Joens (The Dawn of Mercy) clearly depicts the separation of body and soul as pilots from both sides dehumanize each other in order to kill. Rolf's realization of Germany's decay and his own personal fall resonates, while the superficial attitude of the Americans rings false. For historical fiction collections.
