Goodbye, Mickey Mouse Hardcover. Bestselling British author Len Deighton is known for his complex, nuanced espionage thrillers, beginning with his very first novel, The Ipcress File. Along with his contemporary, John le Carré, who also started his career in the early 1960s, Len Deighton transformed the spy novel by writing about the ways in which espionage can not only change the course of history, but how it can affect the morality.

Goodbye, Mickey Mouse is a historical novel by Len Deighton published on 12 October 1982. Set in Britain in early 1944 it tells the story of the 220th Fighter Group of the US Eighth Air Force in the lead up to the Allied invasion of Europe. The Group is based at the fictional Steeple Thaxted airfield in Norfolk. The novel successfully evokes wartime Britain with the effects of rationing and the simmering antipathy the British servicemen felt towards their well-paid American allies.

ENGLAND 1944 In Goodbye Mickey Mouse, Len Deighton has written. Goodbye Mickey Mouse - the title relates to the name given to one of the planes and a discussion about whether a phrase like "goodbye" in a name is unlucky - is not really a thriller, centring as it does on relationships not action. That is, of course, Deighton's intention, but it would not make the novel appeal to fans of, say, his early novels. For the general reader, Goodbye Mickey Mouse is also not perhaps Deighton's most immediately appealing writing, though it would repay the effort required to read i. عاينة المستخدمين - DinadansFriend - LibraryThing. An attempt by Deighton to cover the other major Air force arm, the fighters, does not come off so well as "Bomber". It seems a bit formulaic, and the characters do not spring off the page with verve.

In Goodbye Mickey Mouse Len Deighton has written his best novel yet: a brilliant, multi-dimensional picture of what it is to be at war… and what it was to be in love in the England of 1944.

Goodbye Mickey Mouse is Deighton’s fourteenth novel and a vivid evocation of wartime England, the story of a group of American fighter pilots flying escort missions over Germany in the winter of 1943-4.

At the centre of the novel are two young men: the deeply reserved Captain Jamie Farebrother, estranged son of a deskbound colonel, and the cocky Lieutenant Mickey Morse, well on his way to becoming America’s Number One Flying Ace. Alike only in their courage, they forge a bond of friendship in battle with far-reaching consequences for themselves, and for the future of those they love.

This is a GREAT book about Fighter/Bomber pilots in England flying missions in WWII, developing relationships with local girls and their fights, fears, toughness and cockiness. Len Deighton was a Fighter/Bomber pilot in WWII so it is EXCELLENT. You are there with them and live their lives. I can't speak highly enough about it. I have purchased it more than once. You can't go wrong with this book!

I am a late-comer to the works of Len Deighton. I liked how he told his story through the eyes of the main cast of characters. But the delineation of most of them were a bit sketchy. I thought the plot was unoriginal, but still I enjoyed it because of a lifelong interest in WWII. I wanted to like it amore that I did, but overall it was a good read and I will likely try some of his other works.

Based on the recommendation of a friend I bought a copy of this book - rather than tell you the plot (and spoil it for you) - the book deals with the tactics (and perils) of the fighter pilots of the 8th AAF - and the book starts out like 12 O'clock High with a nostalgic visit to an abandoned airfield in East Anglia.

One is reminded of the horrible causality rate of fliers in that war - the author did a lot of interviews with veterans.

In short one gets a good glimpse into the life of a serviceman - in combat and back at base - during those times in WW2.

It was a page-turner for me - hard to put down.

In reading the of Deighton's other works, I learned that he wrote a fiction called SS-GB - also recommended. I read that years ago about a fictionalized account of the Nazis beating Britain and the accounts of the SS in the UK 20 years later - a good mystery.

Outstanding book on the day to day life of a WWII fighter unit. I loved the skepticism and suspicion that these pilots initially had for an aircraft that cost only about 50k new, was highly maneuverable, with long legs but did not carry the incredibly heavy defensive armour of the P-47 Thunderbolt........something that modern students of flight, enthralled by the allure and performance of the P-51, never thought about.

Incredible story of how WWII changed our world forever! Len Deighton way of doling out the story keeps you turning pages!
The people I ordered it through were quick, courteous and a pleasure to work with.
Only issue is that "large print" on England means a different point in font than in America. My problem though, for not knowing that!

The story unfolds in each chapter that deals specifically with a character in the story, cleverly written so that the read does not get bored. The scenes are well described without getting into to much detail. A good story that makes this book a good read.

An outstanding piece of work as you would expect from Len Deighton. Atmospheric and evocative of wartime tension throughout, the story is made all the more 'real' as the relationships between the various characters are intense, yet somewhat shallow as I imagine relationships forged in war only to be ended by death or peace would have been. I found the ending very emotional with lots of unanswered questions. Excellent!
WWII Remembered in Fiction. If you want a sense of what it was like in Britain as a fighter pilot from the U.S. this is a good place to start.
