  • Probably the best and certainly the most accurate popular novel about the Second World War in the air.

    John Sutherland, London Review of Books
  • A massively different novel... the effect is - quite literally - devastating.

    Sunday Times
  • A massive and superbly mobilised tragedy of the machines which men make to destroy themselves. Masterly and by far Mr Deighton's best.

    Douglas Hurd, The Spectator
  • Bomber is probably the best thing ever written about the wartime air campaign against Germany.

    Max Hastings, The Times
  • A magnificent story ... the characters lean out of the pages.

    Daily Mirror
  • What raises Deighton's genre to art is not only his absorbing characters but his metaphoric grace, droll wit, command of technical detail ... and sure sense of place.

    Andy Solomon, Washington Post
