- While on a reconnaissance mission, Biggles gets caught up in a German invasion of Norway. Constantly trying to stay one step ahead of the the enemy gets him into some desperate straits - and some outrageous pieces of bluff. With his old enemy Von Stalhein hot on his trail, Biggles knows he is just a hairsbredth away from capture and the ultimate horror of a Nazi firing squad.
