“Biggles and his friends are equivalent of the knights-errant of medieval times; they are ready to go to the ends of earth and engage in any adventure, however perilous, for a worthy cause.  In the present story the cause is that of a small, peaceable European state whose independence is menaced by a warlike neighbour backed up by a great power.  Maltovia is not in a position to resist an aggressor, particularly one that threatens her from the air, for she has no air force.”
