The Blue Max


World War I. Lieutenant Bruno Stachel arrives fresh out of flying school at a flying squadron based on the Western Front. He's a commoner, who's risen from the ranks of the infantry.

Lieutenant Stachel finds he's very different to the other pilots, who are all snooty aristocratics. He determines to prove himself by winning the coveted 'Blue Max' medal - to do this you need 20 confirmed kills of enemy aircraft.
