In this exceptional boxed set, discover the first three adventures of Angela McCloud in the skies over Southeast Asia, during the tensest hours of World War II.
Asia, 1944 The Japanese emperor’s troops are ruling over Burma with an iron fist and plotting to seize vast territories that make up not only India but China too…. High above the Pacific, the Americans are gaining ground and providing support to Peking and New Delhi by organizing an air bridge linking the two countries… Angela McCloud is one of the rare female pilots working to ensure this mission’s success on board the legendary Douglas C-47 Dakota.
It is against this backdrop that she must team up with the squadron tasked with escorting cargo planes: the Burma Banshees. When her aircraft is attacked, Angela reveals her true identity and the mission which the American Secret Service has assigned her: unveil the spy providing information on the planes carrying refueling equipment to the Japanese troops. In the midst of all the action, a troop of “showgirls” land at the base to put on a performance for the soldiers.
