Book Description

Blending fact and fiction, this tale of adventure is set in 1940 and follows two men as they parachute into occupied France to rescue an aircraft designer, a man whose designs could decide the fate of the war. Split into 6 parts, this account of one of the darkest times of World War 2 is a rip roaring tale that will have readers eagerly turning the pages right through to the thrilling end. This collector's edition contains all 6 parts.

Read with bated breath as they flee a burning barn, get swept into a raging river, survive a tank attack, escape the clutches of a traitor, have the Gestapo breathing down their neck, and much more!

3.0 out of 5 stars Teen read better suited to a serial 7 Feb. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Bill Edwards, orphaned in the early years of the war, is sent to France to help the resistance effort. When he arrives, he discovers his mission isn't what he thought it would be.

This wasn't as good as Moxham's The Mystery of Smugglers Cove as it lacked narrative structure. The characters run around without much thought or planning, and are constantly surprised by things that, when read in context, they should probably have thought of. I put this down to the fact that the story originally ran as a serial in the old-fashioned style, which needed to end with a surprise and cliffhanger of about the same level of drama each time. This might make it quite suitable for a bedtime read to a pre-teen audience.

In the end I didn't really enjoy the book, as instead of experiencing building tension, I started instead to simply roll my eyes and think 'duh' every time the characters were stymied again. Also, Bill seemed to possess a number of unaccountable skills - engine repair, aircraft flight (including emergency landing and aerial combat!) - that started to feel contrived.

If you want a boys-own-adventure style novel about escaping from behind enemy lines during the war, I recommend Ian Serraillier's There's No Escape instead, which (for all its unconscious racism) stands up to adult re-reading.

Most of the errors mentioned in another review have been corrected in the version I read, so if you are put off the book on that grounds, you needn't worry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Last plane out of Paris. 3 Jun. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story line was ok ,the time line and setting was a new area for me,not the normal French resistance ,was this book researched on actual facts,did the British really have such early plans in place. A follow up book ,should be set with the same characters,but with a better knowledge of never trusting any one but yourself.
