Set during World War 2 in occupied France.
A Lancaster bomber returning from Germany is shot down over the town of Beauville. The pilot and one crew member manage to bail out in time, and are found by resistance fighters. The Germans are close behind however, thanks to a tip off from a collaborator, and they all fall into the hands of Captain Rudi Bramkamp who is a man with serious temper issues.
The Beauville trilogy tells the subsequent stories, as experienced by: the pilot; the collaborator; and the resistance fighter when they each encounter Captain Bramkamp.
