Deighton's historical fiction "Goodbye, Mickey Mouse" vividly evokes wartime England. In the winter of 1943-44, a group of American fighter pilots flies escort missions over Germany--among them the deeply reserved Captain Jamie Farebrother, estranged son of a deskbound colonel, and the cocky Lieutenant Mickey Morse, who's well on his way to becoming America's Number One Flying Ace. The only thing the two men have in common is a wealth of courage, but they forge a bond of friendship in battle with far-reaching consequences for themselves...and for the future of those they love.
