    Oh this was Smashing I liked the first one I read but really this one takes the cake very interesting as well as intruiging and I was at my wits end and edge of the seat several times as to how the main character was going to manage to outwit the clever German Stehln I think I misspelt his name Biggles is on a much deserved leave in England in civvie clothes while his uniform is being cleaned and pressed when a unsrucpulous looking man comes to his table and insists in calling him Brunow a man just recently dishonerably discharged Feeling something bigger than what he knows is in the wind Biggles plays along and before you know it the English secret service is calling on him to play the part and go to Palestine to find if he can the deadly German spy Von Stalhyn In a daring and tingly tale of double intruige and espionage Biggles is kept hopping one step ahead of his opponent in a race for victory

    Such a splendid read Biggles in this book is sent to Palestine as an secret agent for the Germans and in turn for the British I think this one intrigued me a little than the first and there was even an interesting turn of events at the endI liked Biggles attitude toward the Germanshe disliked them but viewed their job just like his when he fought in France This had a couple swear words in it but all in all it is an appropriate book for boys full of adventure

    It's a funny thing but when I re read these as an adult I can see the early shapes of the things that I love as an adult Here Biggles and Algy are it feels on their own against the Germans in the Middle East The sheer joy of the hc and friendship makes this one of my favourite Biggles stories One of my early favourites in the 'near miss' genreJohns' was here writing still from what he knew his flying experience was all in WWI and while he recycled much for the later stories the post WWII stuff never really captures that fine edge of joie de vivre out on the edge of blood and dust and death Johns is not a great writer but he had some great stories to tell

    B3 an astounding story of mistaken identity and a double spySeveral great opportunities sadly missed visiting Mark Way getting decorated with the Iron CrossFirst encounter with spying though not with Military Intelligence section 6

    I read all the Biggles books when I was at school but I must say they are still a great read if you like aviation and memories of the way things were in the days around WW2 Makes you remember what it was to be British

    One of the author's best a tie in my opinion with Biggles Flies West Action packed edge of your seat tension And best of all the book introduces Biggles' life long archenemy Erich Von Stalhein Who could ask for

    IT is one of the best Biggles spy stories sharing the top place with 'Biggles defies the Swastika' The adventures are thrilling and the imagery is perfect The suspense though not enormous encourages the reader to uickly turn the pages A must read for Biggles fans

  8. Ed Simnett Ed Simnett says:

    The introduction of Von StalheimSome very dodgy language and racial stereotyping but overall a ripping yarn and very much Biggles before he got formulaic tbh it might have gotten the fourth star as a book I read as a child and inherited 1949 hardback reprint

    A Ripping Yarn and plotted like a Swiss watch 20316 Picked up and read again Is Biggles still popular? I think there are many good points about this tale First Biggles likes fighting so his unpleasant war service is to do something he hates spying Second the Germans are portrayed as having a range of characteristics Third there's some uite good descriptions and lots of interesting facts I thought it was so funny that history made Biggles feel uncomfortable but the facts were slipped in anywayIt is limited in some ways the treatment of the Arabs and the ethics of Europeans fighting over their land is about what you'd expect for the era
