The Second World War is almost over, but no one seems to have told the Germans - as Royal Air Force pilot Jamie McKenzie finds out when he's assigned to deadly shipping strikes along the enemy coast.
Flying the Mosquito fighter-bomber against heavily armed targets is dangerous enough at the best of times, but after incurring the wrath of his vengeful commanding officer, Jamie is assigned the most unpopular navigator in the unit - not to mention the least reliable aircraft. Worse still, the commander's sights are firmly set on Jamie's beautiful young wife, Beth.

The path their story takes is certainly well-trod, but it delivers exactly the retro, rah-rah combat glory found in the best war comics. If that's your cup of tea then this is certainly where you want to be. Read Full Review
