Graham evokes the strange, mixed-up world of Ops, on which so many lost their lives: the 1,000 bomber raids, gardeing trips, Pathfinder, interspersed with the abandonment of an adulterous affair or a visit to the pub in the quiet East Anglian countryside. Superbly reaearched, 'The Great Illusion' is a first class piece of modern fiction writing. The human drama inherent in the tale is bought out with sympathy, fondness and respect for all the people upon which this poignant novel is based. A tremendous read, with an exciting build up of pace towards the startling conclusion.Hide synopsis
