John Sutherland, writing for the Financial Times, gives a positive review to Turbulence, a new book by Giles Foden. Foden is the author of The Last King of Scotland, which was turned into a popular film.
Turbulence, the FT reports, takes as its central event “'the most important weather forecast in history', for the D-Day Landings. The timing depends on that most perverse of things – the British weather." Mr. Sutherland calls the book "high-suspense plot" and "a classy page-turner, with a terrific D-Day climax."
