Eisel succeeds in painting a compelling picture of airmen at war, beating the odds in a forgotten fighter in an often overlooked theater."

A workman-like unit history that is most interesting for the detailed accounting of the grief and agony 417 Night Fighter Squadron went through in trying to keep combat ready.
