Summary

The classic boys adventure, with brand new illustrations by Rat Western.

Join the intrepid Captain Biggles, hero of the Royal Flying Corps, as he fights on the front line of World War I. The stories in this volume covers ambushes, disaster, mysteries and more than a few ridiculous stunts, all based on real-life events in the life of WE Johns. Fun for adventurers of all ages.

This book was the first mainstream outing for a classic British hero. Wry, brave, and with more than a little taste of absurdity and heroism, come join Biggles, Algy, and the Professor in a bygone era, when being British meant that even one’s enemies were to be treated with honour and nobility.

In this volume, Biggles, Algy, and the other pilots are at the front lines, towards the end of the war. Come along as they fly dangerous missions against zeppelins, airbases and fortified positions, hunt a dragon, get shot down and escape captivity, and more.

Includes: "The Professor"; "The Joy Ride"; "The Bridge Party"; "The Bottle Party"; "The Trap"; "The Funk"; "The Professor Comes Back", "The Great Arena"; "The Dragon's Lair"; "Biggles's Day Off"; and "Scotland For Ever!"

Good story but awful reader

The pace and the monotone used by the reader does the stories no justice. He makes the book dull and slow which the text does not match. Please dont use him again audible! I've listened to well over 300 books on here and this is only the second bad review I have ever had to leave for a narrator.

Good story

The book is as I remember and I enjoined it however the reading style is rather stilted and fails to flow in the same way as Biggles flies north dose.

Great story but not the best narration

The story is of course, great. However the reader is VERY slow and stilted in his narration. However, if you listen to the story at about 1.5x the normal speed it isn't too bad
