When Biggles' opposite number and old friend in the French Surete, Marcel Brissac, joins the French Foreign Legion, Biggles is intrigued as to why. After thinking it through, Biggles concludes that Marcel is onto an international gang with a financial interest in war. Various Countries are at war with each other and when there is a chance of peace, an incident usually occurs to thwart the peace process. The international gang is behind such incidents. The only lead is the knowledge that the gang encourages French Foreign Legionnaires to desert and join them. Biggles and Ginger join Marcel in the Legion, and find he is under suspicion. Eventually, Biggles and Ginger are approached to desert due to their flying experience. The first attempt goes wrong but eventually they do desert and so follow a trail that they hope will lead them to the people in charge. The trail leads to the Valley of the Tartars, where a secret squadron is carrying out acts of aggression. Here they discover the gang's latest recruit is a certain Erich Von Stalhein. With the help of a lone madman waging a one-man war against the gang and a surprise attack by Kurds, Biggles foils their plans. Air Commodore Raymond gets to meet Von Stalhein for the first time. The dust cover depicts Biggles in the Legion uniform.

I will be quite frank with you. The company for which we do a lot of work owns vast estates in several parts of the world—undeveloped parts of the world, I should explain. In such places there are sometimes to be found recalcitrant tribesmen who, by raiding our outposts, do a lot of mischief. To punish these

Just walk over and get in.” “Suppose somebody stops us?” Twenty-nine looked at them through half-closed eyes. “With those badges!nNo. No one stop you.” “Anything else?” “Any reasons why we shouldn’t know where we’re going?” “Plenty. Maybe you see when you get there—maybe not. Have a drink?” “No thanks.” “Please yourself.” Twenty-nine got up

Everyone goes through it.” “We were there tonight.” “One day I’m going to clean that place up with a stick or two of dynamite,” swore Lindsay. “Now you listen to me,” said Biggles severely. “I’ve told you to pack up. You’ll do more good, for us as well as yourself, by staying alive.” “How?” “By coming forward and giving

It was von Stalhein—or something like that.” Not a muscle of Biggles’s face moved. “Well, he isn’t here so we’ll get off.” “Six was the time.” The man looked at the control tower clock. “It ain’t quite six yet.” “It’s near enough. He isn’t coming or he’d be here by now.” “What’s the hurry?” “I’ll tell

Algy. “We shall have to go to the Canal Zone1, tell the Air Officer Commanding what has happened and ask him to lend us a machine.” “No use, old boy,” said Bertie despondently. “Why not?” “In the first place it will take hours to get to the Canal Zone, and the senior officer isn’t likely to let us have an aircraft without getting the necessary authority. By that time, even if it came off, the Douglas will have come back and Biggles and Ginger will have had it.” They were still debating the
