Summary (From the publisher):

The horror and the humanity of war come too close, when a little fishing boat, the Breadwinner, rescues a pilot shot down in the Channel during a dogfight. The only trouble is, the pilot is German. As the young fisherman tends his wounds, he comes to realize that war is not exciting, and the enemy before him is just a young boy like himself - indistinguishable from the once glamorous English pilot who soon also crashes near the boat.
