20 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in German and English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Helmut Käutner's film is an adaptation of a play by Carl Zuckmayer, who based his character of Harras, a general in the Luftwaffe, on a real-life pilot, the aviation pioneer Ernst Udet. In a vintage performance by Curd Jürgens, General Harras is portrayed as a stubborn, power-driven officer, vain, irreverent to the point of recklessness and a womanizer. During the course of WW2 in 1941, and following certain key experiences, he increasingly develops an inner distance from Hitler's regime. He is arrested, then released on the condition that he root out the saboteurs responsible for a series of fighter plane crashes. Harras refuses to denounce the perpetrators, instead plunging to his death in a plane that has been tampered with

"A terrific suspense thriller loosely based on the life of Ernst Udet, the highest scoring German ace to survive WWI. General Harras (Udet) ..., a talented Luftwaffe designer, has the technical expertise to develop newer and deadlier fighters and bombers ... His standing with the Nazi leadership is shaken when they begin to wonder whether the loss of his aircraft is due to poor design or ... could it be sabotage. Harras is a man of his time, yet a man of honor in a dishonorable Vaterland."
