a.k.a. William Earl Johns, William Earl *

Author Code: EWEJ

Born: Feb. 5, 1893 - Bengeo, England

Died: Jun. 21, 1968 - Richmond Upon Thames, England

Educated at the Hertford Grammar School, Johns also attended a local art school. He served a four year apprenticeship as a surveyor before becoming a sanitary inspector. In 1913, he joined the Territorial Army, which was mobilized at the outbreak of war in 1914.In late 1915 he was sent to Gallipoli. A year later he joined the Machine Gun Corps. He contracted malaria while serving in Greece and was hospitalized for a short time. In September 1917, he was commissioned a second lieutenant in the Royal Flying Corps, later becoming a flying instructor. In 1918, he was transferred to the Western Front. He was shot down and was held prisoner by the Germans until the end of the war. Following the war, he remained with what was by now, the RAF, becoming a recruitment officer. He produced his first novel, Mossyface, in 1922. He was transferred to the reserves in 1927 and relinquished his commission in 1931. Johns became a prolific author, producing over 160 books, numerous articles, short stories and, most importantly, invented the character of Biggles in Popular Flying, a magazine he had created in 1932. He was a fervent opponent of appeasement and this led to his removal as editor in 1939. Not only did he predict the war with Germany, but also the Japanese conquests in the Far East. He continued to write until his death in 1968. His many works include The Camels Are Coming (1932), Biggles Flies Again (1934), Desert Night (1938), Biggles in the Baltic (1940), Biggles in Borneo(1943), Worrals Goes East (1944), Biggles Gets His Men (1950), Adventure Bound (1955), The Edge of Beyond (1958), Worlds of Wonder (1963) and Biggles in the Underworld (1968).
