(From the publisher):
Summer 1942 - and the Allied Armies are planning for the invasion of France. Operation Rutter - the dress rehearsal before the real McCoy - is to be a probing raid on the Channel port of Dieppe, to evaluate the enemy's strength. On sea, the invasion fleet swells the Solent. On land, the RAF squadron eagerly awaits orders and the chance to clash with the Luftwaffe.
And so, one grey July morning, Piper squadron heads into the dawn breaking over French soil to meet the inevitable aerial attack from Germany. For the young, inexperienced pilots of the squadron, the operation represents the greatest test of bravery, skill and courage they've encountered yet - but for many it's a one-way ticket to death.
