5369: Action and Adventure: Flight to Freedom
The Siege of Malta sees British pilots Maddock and Wintrell in an endless cycle of dogfights and dodgy landings to hold the Axis powers at bay. But when the pair are rescued from disaster by the intriguing Italian Captain Fattorini, they are determined to escape their captivity and rejoin the fray.
They don’t know why the Russian is there, but they’re happy to have him along. This light-hearted but pacey adventure from Andrew Knighton captures the intensity of the fighting around Malta, with a fiery cover from veteran artist Ian Kennedy and exceptional interiors by Morhain and Defeo.
