From war-darkened London to the lush countryside of southern France, two courageous World War II pilots fall for the same beautiful French girl -- and are caught in a conflict of passion versus duty. Neir Richardson, an R.A.F. flight lieutenant, fought side-by-side with the French flyer Maurice Dupont. And when the Englishman was wounded, his comrade-in-arms insisted he go to recuperate at a romantic village in Provence. There Neil discovered Julie, Maurice's fiance -- and a love such as he had never known. To hurt Maurice would be unthinkable, but love in war is a once-in-a-lifetime affair.
