Bomber is a novel of war. There are no victors, no vanquished. There are simply those who remain alive, and those who die. Bomber follows the progress of an Allied air raid through a period of twenty-four hours in the summer of 1943. It portrays all the participants in a terrifying drama, both in the air and on the ground, in Britain and in Germany. In its documentary style, it is unique. In its emotional power it is overwhelming.

Len Deighton has been equally acclaimed as a novelist and as an historian. In Bomber he has combined both talents to produce a masterpiece. The classic novel of the Second World War that relates in devastating detail the 24-hour story of an allied bombing raid.

    " I Think this is the best WW2 fiction written todate. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Billie | 2/13/2014

    " One of the first "serious" books I've read. (circa 1974). Its a really good book. The horrors of war come through and can send a chill down ones spine.Well written a lot of characters that one can empathize with. Learned a lot about the world of bombing and defending against bombers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 2/13/2014

    " The author has taken an interesting approach by focussing on the lives of all the people who are involved or associated with in some way, with a WW2 Lancaster bomber during a 24 hour period. From the pilots and crew through to those who are being bombed, an incredible realism of life during those strained times is well portrayed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jude Brigley | 1/30/2014

    " It is probably the fact that my father was a Rear Gunner that the book affected me so much. it was truly horrifying and made me realise what my father had endured and why he said so often 'Don't b;lame the individual, blame the system.' The ending of the book is devastating. It shows the horror for both sides. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 1/21/2014

    " A fictional account of life with an English bomber squadron ... and their targets in a small German town. The book is on the level of Slaughterhouse Five in portraying the lives of both sides during World War II, this account simply describes the lives -- and deaths -- of several dozen people during the 24-hour period of an attack in June, 1943. The trepidations, wishes and wrath of officialdom are part of the story on both sides. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ceekayell | 1/14/2014

    " A highly detailed account of a WWII Bombing raid; a documentary style account of a fictional bombing raid, it explores the lives and sometimes deaths of characters in the planes and on the ground. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 1/13/2014

    " A very good book - read many years ago but still well-remembered. Well worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 12/31/2013

    " Taking place over a single day yet huge in scope, this is the story of a bomber raid and the lives it affects - British and German, military and civilian. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob Lenning | 10/27/2013

    " This book is the truth about war ... about a modern, sometimes almost anonymous war where the killer and killed may never even see each other. I recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gregory | 9/2/2013

    " Entertaining quick read. This is the second time I have read it. I bought this copy used for 1 cent and $3.99 shipping and it was sent from England and used at a library in the early 1980s. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brad Bennett | 8/4/2013

    " Amazing research and detail! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin | 7/15/2013

    " An excellent book. There's a great bbc radio series on YouTube that's so much better once you've read the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Sterckx | 7/6/2013

    " A companion piece to his screenplay for the Battle Of Britain. A superb docudrama filled with incredibly detailed research. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edmond Stevens | 5/25/2013

    " Just about my favourite novel "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 DD_Michael Martin | 1/20/2013

    " June 31,1942?--WWII was the first technological war and the idea of "collateral-damage" came into being-- and acceptable, if not unfortunate victims. Deighton presents the face of war from the perspective of both sides of a mini-holocast. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Lothian | 11/23/2012

    " Good read, a lot more than just the Bomber. It covers the random nature of conflict, right place, wrong place. There are a lot of characters but then there were 60 million dead participants so there were at least 10 times that involved. Another good Deighton book. "
