This work is set in Britain in early 1944 and is noted by critics to successfully evoke the attitudes of wartime Britain. Focusing on the 220th Fighter Group of the US Eighth Air Force in the lead up to the Allied invasion of Europe, the storyline of the novel revolves around a love affair between pilot Captain James Farebrother, and the English Victoria Cooper. The novel's title comes from the second plot line i the work, in which Lieutenant Mickey Morse races to be the first American pilot to break Eddie Rickenbacker's record of 26 kills from World War I.
