Biggles is James Bigglesworth, an English fighter pilot. His Royal Flying Corps squadron flies Sopwith Camel fighter planes in 1917 and are based in France during the first world war.
The book starts with Biggles being attacked by a white Fokker DR1, a German triplane fighter. The next day he takes off with his patrol in search of the white Fokker. He comes back victorious in shooting down the Fokker triplane.
A couple of weeks later Biggles sees a Sopwith Camel shooting down another Sopwith Camel! He knows it's not from his squadron, so he flies to the other Sopwith Camel Squadron, 287 Squadron, to check. They say they had a Camel with the same serial number, but it got shot down. Then Biggles realised that the Germans were using Camels to trick them! Biggles orders all the Camels in both squadrons to have their propeller boss and part of the fuselage painted blue for identification. Biggles eventually finds the German Sopwith Camel and shoots it down.
Biggles’ friend is sadly killed during the next week when he chases a German Rumpler aircraft down through the clouds but German Albatrosses, different aircraft, are waiting for him below. Biggles wants revenge for his friend being killed so he sets out on a long quest to shoot down the Rumpler. He eventually succeeds and is proud of it.
A month later Biggles is on leave when it is reported that there are two German bombers in the area where he is on holiday. His Camel is in a nearby hanger, so he flies after, and shoots down, the bombers but runs out of fuel in thick fog and has to land in a field.
The next morning he finds a poison gas plant so he reports it back to Major Mullen, his officer when he returns to the aerodrome where he also meets a girl and they become friends.
Towards the end of the book Biggles is really tired with all the fighting but then his friends tell him that an armistice has been signed so he will go on leave.
I liked the book because it is an exciting story about the pilot of fighter planes during the first world war, and I love fighter aircraft.
I would recommend the book for people who like aircraft, action and adventure.
I would rate the book 10 out of 10.

Snoopy pretends it is World War 1 and he is a flying ace in his kennel which he imagines is a Sopwith Camel fighter plane. Charlie Brown and his friends do not understand Snoopy's dog fights with the Red Baron, except for Marcie. With Woodstock as his mechanic, Snoopy's plane always comes back ridden with bullet holes from the Red Baron.
My favourite part was when Snoopy says "Yes sir...I'd like permission to speak to General Pershing...Yes it's a very delicate matter...well my brother who is in the infantry wants to know why they never get any tapioca pudding." Then Snoopy gets kicked out the door!
I would recommend this book for people of all ages and for people who like comedy and World War 1.
I would rate this book 10 out of 10.
