it was amazing
Read in July, 2012

The narrative ranges all over, from vivid description of a battle, to running headlong into the realization of how very alone one can be in a crowd. Highly recommended.

"never...take a deaf man for a conspirator" p.413
"He flew westward across the line and they went after in pursuit, with that amiable weakness of aircraft for a hostile machine, however important the ground target." p.576
