It was a blood-feud in the skies - a fight that began in the First World War between a British ace in a string-bag of a plane and the commander of a huge German Zeppelin…

It had to be settled in World War II by their sons; sleek Spitfire pitted against merciless Messerschmitt 109, their guns chattering a song of death.

Introduction

Don't be fooled by Ken Barr's cover - this is not a First World War tale. That zeppelin that only just fits on the cover is soon replaced by a Bf109; the SE5 becoming a Spitfire. With Peter Ford in charge of the inside art, that means you're in for a treat as his flying scenes are so well-rendered. His ground scenes are just as good and those of you with good eyesight (or magnifying glasses) may just be able to make out some little extra details in the backgrounds of the scenes. Check out the walls of the crew room and perhaps the notepad on the ground controller's desk.

Better not forget Brunt's "sins of the fathers" script, without which none of this showmanship would be possible. Thank you, sir.
