The year is 1943.

The British and Indian forces fighting in Burma against the Japanese are near breaking point.

With the monsoon season approaching there is limited time to turn the tide of fighting in the Allied Forces favour and every opportunity presented must be taken - but will the risks prove too great?

For the R.A.F squadrons based along the Indo-Burmese front, conditions are devastating: a vile climate, tropical diseases and a merciless enemy combined with low numbers of outdated aircraft threaten to destroy the men both physically and mentally.

However, with the arrival of a new leader Denis Quinton for the Panther Squadron things begin to turn in their favour.

His strength of mind and drive for success in the war lead his pilots to new heights as they collaborate with the Ground Force to ambush the Japanese.

But the threat of imminent death looms.

Whether prince or pauper, every pilot's contribution towards this squadron has potential consequences both in life and in death.

Will Panther Squadron make it out alive?

Or will their endeavours end in disaster?

'Panther Squadron' is a fast-paced military thriller, brimming with action and intrigue in the unique setting of World War Two Burma.
