From an air base in Cambrigeshire, England, a group of young American fighter pilots is flying mission after dangerous mission, protection for the huge fleets of bombers penetrating deep into Germany. Two of these men are close friends. Captain Jamie Farebrother, son of an American Air Force general, is well educated and deeply reserved. Lieutenant Mickey Morse is turbulent, cocky, yet desperately unsure of himself. We see them with their fellow pilots, with their commanding officers, and with the women they love in a dramatic masterpiece about men at war that only Len Deighton could write.
