Pray Silence was the original title of the first Tommy Hambledon novel (retitled in the US to "A Toast to Tomorrow") and one of the best. If you want a feel for what it was like to live in England or Germany in the early 20th century you can't find a more readable description. That isn't, or course, the point of the book but it adds a pleasant depth to the story. The story line is well done and the humor is quite good - but not over-the-top. I have probably read the novel a dozen times since I first discovered it in the late 1950s and still enjoy it.
