Biggles Flies East, by W.E. Johns

This wonderful book has been reissued to coincide with the centenary of the First World War.

While on leave Biggles is mistaken for someone else. He thinks little of it at the time, but when headquarters find out they ask him to take the place of his double and work for the Germans as a spy, while secretly reporting back to the British. It’s a difficult task and there’s a very high price to pay if he’s spotted, his life!
