The BookViral Review:

With successive generations, it can be easy to lose track of the epic scope of World War I but in ‘Flights for Freedom’ Burgauer has given us a World War 1 Fighter Pilot Novel that creates vivid images and emotions that are easy to grasp. And in doing so he helps us make sense of the horror to which his novel portends.

From a purely literary perspective, it’s an outstanding achievement. And one that becomes increasingly more relevant as his plot progresses. Attaining a properly incredulous sense of horror at the sheer scope of carnage and the fleeting nature of life on the frontline. And leaving us with a poignant reminder of the way war can dehumanize us.

Every character in “Flights for Freedom” earns their place with Burgauer exploring their innermost aspirations, patriotic convictions and back-stories whilst key characters like Newkirk, Petrol, Adriana and the pigeon priest, Father Montagne, are the human anchors that convey the emotional resonance of Burgauer’s narrative.

Detailed yet oblique, leisurely but compelling. Burgauer’s research lifts ‘Flights for Freedom’ above the run of the mill war and military action fiction as he solemnly and intelligently examines the fears, frustrations, anxiety’s, animosity’s and boredom of waiting to engage the enemy and the level of authenticity he achieves makes it an easy story to embrace. His aviators are the stuff of heroes and yet we never forget they are flesh and blood. Some barely old enough to shave and yet falling from the sky in tailspins and fireballs as they make aviation history.

Impeccably written ‘Flights for Freedom’ is nothing short of superb and is unreservedly recommended.

Political Satire Fiction

With its acerbic narrative perspective, dark humour, and even its absurdity it’s hard to deny the ever-present element of plausibility in Tales of American Idiocy that makes it quite terrifying and at the very least a damning indictment of America’s political players and society itself.
