Riassunto: When young Charlie Holt is chosen to take an airship to France in order to bring out a young girl and her mother, the motive for the challenge is intelligence—the girl has befriended a German officer who revealed the Germans' forthcoming military plans. Her information could save the war and millions of lives. It is agreed that in return for her intelligence, she and her invalid mother will be taken to safety. With a marine and air mechanic as accomplices, Holt sets out on his mission, but it all goes wrong when Holt confuses his directions. Out of a sense of honor and guilt, he will have to complete the mission—alone.
Dall'editore: December, 1917—World War I. The Royal Navy is operating 200 airships around the coasts of Britain. Lieutenant Charlie Holt is one of the best pilots they have, though he's inclined to be reckless—and not only in the air. When he's chosen to take a newly built airship to France in order to bring out a young girl and her mother, the motive for the challenge is military intelligence. The girl, Hilde, has been befriended by a German officer, who one night, tired and emotional, revealed the Germans' impending military plans. Her information could save the war and a million lives. It's been agreed that in return for her intelligence, she and her invalid mother will be taken to safety. With a marine and a mechanic as accomplices, Holt sets out on his mission, but it all goes wrong when he confuses his directions. Now he'll have to complete the mission—alone.
