Review of “Sacrifices of the Sky” (1998)
Miyazaki Hayao (writer).
Read in 2021.
Read in Turning Point.
The self-sacrifice of WW1-era aircraft pilots.
Published as a commentary on Wind, Sand and Stars (1939) by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Miyazaki wanders off topic to paint his picture of the era as one of tragedy, adventure and the paradoxical love of flying.
