North Africa, 1942. Dust, heat, thirst, flies. A good clean fight, for those who like that sort of thing, and some do. From an advanced landing field, striking hard and escaping fast, our old friends from Hornet Squadron ('Piece of Cake') play Russian roulette, flying their clapped-out Tomahawks on ground-strafing forays.Meanwhile, on the ground, the men of Captain Lampard's S.A.S. patrol drive hundreds of miles behind enemy lines to plant bombs on German aircraft.This is the story of a war of no glamour and few heroes, in a setting often more lethal than the enemy.
