G His face was pale In the uneasy atmosphere of Europe between the two World Wars Biggles Algy and Ginger are persuaded to defend a small middle European country from an aggressive neighbour backed up by an unnamed Big Powe. As with all Biggles books some of the charm is the simplicity There is black and white and no grey You are rarely left in the doubt about what side each character is on If they have a strong handshake they are good If they have a shifty glance they are bad So when the real world where nothing is black or white is too draining There is the Biggles worldIn this book a representative from an eastern European state contacts Biggles asking him to set up an minimal airforce because a neighbouring state has started moving aggressively It could be modeled on a Baltic state since this is before they were occupied by Russia He s reluctant but when someone tells him not to go well if you know Biggles books you know the restI think this is one of the better books in the Biggles library That doesn t mean it s great but sometimes you don t need a great book just a simple book

    After time of exotic adventures Biggles puts on a war uniform again not the bitish one this time though and flies into a web of intriues and international politics I read it in one sitting it was awesomely fast I really enjoyed it
