May 1940: Flight Lieutenant Ken Armstrong is deployed to an airfield in France.
His arrival coincides with Hitler’s invasion of France and the Low Countries.
He picks up victory after victory but nothing he can do will be enough to turn the tide.
Armstrong befriends the pilots he fights beside but is forced to watch them drop out of the sky each day.
The battle for France will be lost.
But that doesn’t mean the war is over.
Armstrong and his men are determined to fight tooth and nail against impossible odds.
In this tale of dignity and bravery when all hope seems lost, Armstrong must do what needs to be done.
As a former pilot and Squadron Leader himself, Robert Jackson masters the plot and brings history to life in fantastic detail.
This is the second novel to feature the charismatic Flight Lieutenant Ken Armstrong, following on from Flames Over Norway.
