Synopsis for "The Coward Dies Twice"Edit

The Blackhawks jump into a dogfight over the channel between German and British planes. As they destroy the Germans, one of the British fighters deserts. When the dogfight is finished, the Blackhawks find the runaway Spitfire and escort it to Blackhawk Island. There, Blackhawk treats the young Brit with kindness but the rest of the team want nothing to do with a coward. A message arrives saying the Germans are going to seize secrets that could help them build an atomic bomb from a French scientist at the Radium Institute in Paris. The Blackhawks take off and after a series of rousing fights, rescue the scientist. But back on Blackhawk Island, they get another message that tells of a German Luftwaffe raid on its way to wipe out the Blackhawks. The British deserter finds his courage and takes off, arriving just in time to crash his Spitfire into the German bombers, redeeming himself in his death.
