Summary

Until the Night is a novel of the Bombing War. 

When in September 1943 Adam Chantrey, a 25-year-old veteran of the Bombing War, is sent to Ansham Wolds to rebuild a shattered Lancaster squadron, Bomber Command's greatest battle is only weeks away. 

Exhausted and tormented by his own demons, he discovers, amidst the chaos of war and loss, love and an unlikely inner peace up on the high wold of Lincolnshire while all around him the world is enveloped in madness. 

Bomber Command's hour of greatest trial - the Battle of Berlin - is approaching, and its long, dark shadow hangs over the young men who ride the heavies of the Main Force to Germany in the knowledge that a tour of bomber operations is a death sentence for two out of every three men.

I really liked this book,

It is well researched, well presented, and very informative. However, it is a hard book to listen to There is almost too much information to absorb it all in one listen. Andrew Calverley does a first-rate job with the narration.

The Bomber war bought to life

Enjoyed the experience, it was a good story made better by a reader that enhances the narrative. Will look for other books by James Philip.......
