Two exciting First World War adventure stories in one edition, this is the perfect introduction to this bestselling series for new readers.
BIGGLES LEARNS TO FLY
Age just seventeen and with almost no flying experience, James Bigglesworth is sent to tackle the enemy in the hostile skies over First World War France. In a drama of war, where instinct and fast reactions are everything, Biggles must learn to be a real fighter pilot, or die... but does he have what it takes?
BIGGLES THE CAMELS ARE COMING
Fighting high above the trenches of First World War France Biggles knows he needs more than just flying skills to survive against the Sopwith Camel -- a demon to fly, but incredibly fast in a dogfight, it commands fierce loyalty from its pilot. Will Biggles' luck and initiative be enough to keep him alive?
