Flying Officer Joe Blake and his mates were feeling pretty confident when war came to Malaya in 1941. But, when their first-ever dogfight against mighty Mitsubishi A6M Zeros in their outclassed Brewster Buffalos came, the rookie Australian pilots paid a heavy price indeed.
Joe, now the only survivor of his squadron, was tasked with training a new one. But when he was confronted with the fresh faces of his new green squad, he couldn’t help but see the faces of the dead he had left behind.
