Three friends, united by their love of flying, torn apart by different origins. Amidst the madness of the Second World War, what will prove strongest: friendship, or loyalty?

Silesia, 1930. Three children play with toy airplanes. Three friends – Max the Polish Jew, Werner and Hanna the Germans. All dream of becoming pilots, but they won’t all have the same opportunities, and the world is heading down a dark road... 1944. Max is now an ace in the US Navy, while Hanna is one of Germany’s top test pilots. Will anything remain of their old friendship, as the sides they each chose are locked in a struggle to the death?

Key Points:
  • A story of love, friendship and betrayal against the backdrop of the Second World War
  • Winner of several awards, including the 2014 Angouleme Festival’s Secondary School Pupils Award, and the Ardennes Fighter Pilots Award
  • Inspired by historical characters, such as Hanna Reitsch or ‘Wild Bill’ Donovan
  • A dynamic and realistic style, equally at ease with close ups on faces as with aerial dogfights

Yann is known for his ferocious humour and his enduring cynicism. After his beginnings in Spirou with Conrad, first in the margins of the magazine then with the hilarious trio Les Innommables, he will become one of the most essential writers of the comics scene, with over 50 series under his belt. Alain Henriet is a long-time fan of both European and American comics. In addition to working for Spirou magazine, he drew the series John Doe in 1996 and Golden Cup in 2003 before signing on for one volume of Pandora’s Box in 2005, followed by series Damocles published by Cinebook.
