Each dawn, from scores of bomber bases hastily built among East Anglia’s sleepy villages, thousands of American airmen take off to strike, in broad daylight and against appalling odds, at Germany’s industrial war machine. Each dusk, hundreds fail to return. Under an English Heaven evokes the passion and turbulence of war in extraordinary physical detail and with absolute conviction.”
