Based on one of Saint-Exupéry’s 1940 reconnaissance missions, “Arras is a deeply personal book… Conceived as a volume on the fall of France, Flight to Arras was a war book by the time it was published. It won raves on both counts. It was universally thought to dwarf all other accounts of the French defeat; writing in the Atlantic Edward Weeks declared, ‘This narrative and Churchill’s speeches stand as the best answer the democracies have yet found to Mein Kampf” (Schiff, 363).
