Biggles : The Camels Are Coming Paperback

Death Trap! Air combat is the order of the day in the final days of the First World War.
Duelling high above the trenches, Biggles knows that he needs more than just flying skills to survive.
The enemy is now using their own British aircraft, the Sopwith Camel, to lure them to their deaths.
A devil to fly, invaluably fast in a dogfight, this machine commands fierce loyalty from its pilots.
Will luck and initiative be enough to keep Biggles alive?
Join cult hero and flying ace, Squadron Leader James Bigglesworth on another action packed adventure!

Review by debnance
I hated the first couple of pages; I didn't get what was happening in the story. Then I decided to back up and just read it and go with it, not trying to figure out every little anachronistic aviation term. I got it. I flew with these very, very young pilots in World War I. It is a ride. A real ride in the air and a ride through time. It's full of all the things that the book police would hate today: shooting, killing others with a sense of triumph, hatred for other peoples. But, nevertheless, a fabulous adventure book.
