4.0 out of 5 stars BRILL! 4 Jan 2008
By man u
Format:Paperback
This was the first biggles book i ever read. Formerly Biggles of the Camel Squadron this book has not changed, even though i expected that they would use more up to date language. They Haven't, this book has been unaltered since it was first published. It shows how much strain fighter pilots are under and brings out the heart of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Biggles of the Camel Squadron 21 July 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
To complete the WW1 collection of Biggles short stories - when published in the 60s, they were collected together as Biggles Pioneer Air Fighter, Biggles of 266 & Biggles of the Camel Squadron.

As ever, these are more of the best Biggles stories, striking a wonderful balance between the very deadly real dangers of fighting above the trenches versus an air of levity, adventure and comradeship.

If you enjoyed any of the other stories set at the same time, you have to complete the set. They're so addictive.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great book 13 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is a great book it's about Biggles and Algy's adventures during World War 1. they find themselves dicing with death as they fly around France shooting down the Germans. They become very good friend's with a clever pilot which they nickname the 'Professor'. Biggles saves the 'Professor' many times and it makes a great story.

A number of the stories in this book also appear in other Biggles First World War books.
This does not detract from the enjoyment of reading them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hoorah for Biggles 14 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is very difficult to get our son (11 years) to read. He loves this book and is now reading more in the series. A hit for a recalcitrant reader - it is well written and introduces new vocabulary.
