Reviews - What do customers think about Biggles Recounts - The Falklands War (Biggles Recounts)?
Brilliant art, competant story Jan 8, 2008
This graphic novel is long on technical illustration, but short on story. For aviation aficianados of all ages, the artwork is tantalizing, but the story will satisfy younger readers only. For these nascent airwar experts however, the book is a good overview of the political miscalulations of the Argentines, and the dogged determination of the British not to let the sun go down on one of the lonliest outposts of the old Empire. Of course, the pilots and the planes are the real stars, and they give the story wings.
