Product Description:

With Wings Like Eagles Korda's brilliant work of history takes the reader back to the summer of 1940, when fewer than 3,000 young fighter pilots of the Royal Air Force--often no more than 900 on any given day--stood between Hitler and the victory that seemed almost within his grasp. Full description

Review:

"* 'Brilliantly told...I was fascinated by the first-class rehabilitation job done on Dowding. Until this book, I had no idea how detailed and determined were his preparations from 1936 - 1940'. Winston S Churchill * 'His mastery of aero-technics is phenomenal, and no-one can make an exciting and complex tale more understandable'. --Sir Alistair Horne

'Korda's natural talent and experience as a storyteller has enabled him to bind all the disparate and sometimes conflicting episodes into a gripping story. A formidable job, beautifully completed.' --Len Deighton author of Fighter and Bomber.

'We climb into our cockpits for the dog-fights with an awareness none of the pilots had of the context of politics, personalities, engineering and strategy from both sides of the battle. It is compelling history.' --Sir Harold Evans"
