Publisher's Summary

Having survived a double tour on Lancasters in WW2 (and won two DFCs), Flight Lieutenant Silk rejoins Bomber Command much later and qualifies to fly the Vulcan bomber. Welcoming him, the airbase commander says: "You have the best, and the worst, job in the world. You have the Vulcan, incomparably the finest bomber. That's the best bit. Your job is to fly to the Soviet Union and destroy cities. That's the worst bit. If Moscow decides to go berserk, Soviet bombers can attack us with nuclear weapons - enough to turn these islands into a smoking wasteland."
Trouble ahead. And when the lovely Zoe brings politics to the party, the mixture is explosive.

An Insult to the V-Force

The plot is ludicrous, the characters are two-dimensional caricatures, and the puerile humour of most of the dialogues quickly becomes annoying. The author clearly does not understand how the V-Force operated, and there are numerous, serious, technical errors. It is easy to see why this book, by an already established author, originally had to be self-published.
