Just arrived from USA trough BM.

This is the story of Sgt. Thomas Deacon, a port-waist gunner who has flying missions over Italy during World War II.

He is obsessed with the number of left missions he has until he completes the required fifty missions. It turns out that he suffers a mental breakdown and he is sent to a hospital in Bari in order to recover this mental health.

Pat Barker with her Regeneration trilogy deals much better with this question, in another scenario of course.

My rating: 2,5
