 About the Book 

Coopers provocative story is about the decline in morale of a bomber squadron based in England toward the end of World War II. The catalyst is an ideological new commander, who does all the wrong things for the right reasons. But below the surfaceMoreCoopers provocative story is about the decline in morale of a bomber squadron based in England toward the end of World War II. The catalyst is an ideological new commander, who does all the wrong things for the right reasons. But below the surface is the issue of racial bigotry, of overpowering pragmatism and keeping the status quo versus doing the right thing. Coopers novel touches nerves of military competence and race that are as relevant today as four decades ago. -- Publishers Weekly
