I found that many of the detective stories were getting a bit boring so when I got a copy of this and read it I thoroughly enjoyed it and it made up for the fact that some of the other post war stories of Biggles and Co were a little boring.

I thought that Van Stalhein in this was exceptional and just highlighted the difference between him and Biggles and their methods of doing things. Definitely worth a read. Out of the 98 Biggles books I have 52 in my collection and can safely say that I think

A postwar outing for Biggles, who takes leave from the Air Police to follow up a lead privately. Someone is recruiting pilots from the Foreign Legion for a secret squadron designed to stir up trouble all over the world, making sure the market for armaments remains buoyant. To investigate, Biggles and Ginger must go undercover and don the famous white kepi. Not much flying but plenty of fighting, and an appearance by an old enemy.
