On the 15th of May 1940, the forces of the Third Reich surge into northwestern France after the breakthrough in Sedan. While preparing for complete peace, the unwary French are surprised and defeated. The Germans block off the British Expeditionary force in the Dunkirk Pocket. But an incomprehensible hesitation on the part of the German Army allows Her Majesty's forces to escape back to England. In the face of a victorious Reich, the fate of the world will rest for a few months on the shoulders of a handful of men: the RAF pilots.

Cinebook recounts #3: The Wright Brothers
ISBN: 9781849181006 (48p.) (2011) Format: Softcover
In this third volume, RFC fighter pilot Biggles recounts the Wright brothers, who invented the modern aeroplane. The brothers made the first controlled, powered and sustained heavier-than-air human flight on December 17, 1903; in the following two years, they developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build and fly experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing flight possible.
