Finally! August Wolff had recieved his papers - he was to be posted to the front, at Bertincourt!

Shortly after take-off he crossed the Rhein, thinking brightly of the glory that awaited him in the sky.

But the 3 hour flight gave him time to think and ponder the reality that there would be other young men - French and Englishmen - up in the sky as well and intent on killing him. When he landed at Bertincourt at last, he was glad of the welcome he recieved from the other pilots - and also quite glad when the commander informed him that he was to spend a few days becoming familiar with the area before he would be ordered into battle.
