Summary: Saint-Exupery, a pioneer airman, is now also recognised as one of the finest of modern French writers. In "Flight to Arras, the author is sent on a reconnaissance flight over enemy-occupied France. The time is 1940, France is in shambles, his flight is pointless and the chances of getting back alive are two to one against.

This is a classic war story about the futility of war. It is a picture of a defeated country and an understanding portrait of men who contribute to defeat by putting humanity above patriotism.
