War has been declared.

Mescouilles-sur-Aube. An airbase at the heart of a European continent ravaged by death and destruction once more.

Charles Archer is one of the best pilots the R. A. F. has ever seen.

Stationed just miles from the Western Front, he is the envy of his squadron and a formidable foe for every German gunner and pilot.

Swerving his hasty way through air battles over France and the German heartland, Archer must face flak and fear every day of his life to protect the freedom of the British nation.

But war is a time of turmoil. Hidden behind the defence of the French Maginot Line, a fortified wall of obstacles on the French-German border, Archer is safe - but only for now.

One day, one sortie will be his last.

When Archer and his companion Dowst shoot down a German fighter, things begin to change forever.

Having met the enemy man-to-man, can Archer bring himself to strike with the mechanical efficiency required of him?

He has to, if he hopes to win the heart of young Chantal Boucard, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy, respectable family.

She might prove Archer's greatest challenge yet.

He must prove to himself that love, if nothing else, can escape the crushing grasp of war.

But when defences fail and Germany invades France, the war takes a turn that threatens to thrust Archer, his pilots and his lover into darkness and oblivion.

This thrilling tale of heroic bravery meshes both social and military drama with a poignant love story that will have you eager to keep reading.

Follow a story of brotherhood, redemption and struggle set in a chaotic environment that truly deserves the name Killing Zone.

Richard Townshend Bickers is the acclaimed author of over twenty military fiction novels including Target Ahead and The Burning Blue, drawing from his many years' experience as an R. A. F. regular officer.
