|aThis volume by the celebrated author of The Little Prince brings together a wide range of writings from the World War II years - letters, meditations and perplexities - the work of a mantorn between his horror of war, his sense of duty, and his feelings for his enemy-occupied country. Revealing a supremely sensitive human being and a great French patriot and pilot, this work shows Saint Exupery's struggle to reconcile his hatred of war with the need to wage it. While flying for his air squadron, Saint-Expuery disappeared over the Mediterranean a year after writing his most famous book, The Little Prince.
