With Wings Like Eagles: The Untold History of the Battle of Britain

Be the first to review this product

It was the most intense and critical struggle of World War II, the outcome of which would mean freedom or Nazi domination of Europe. Fought by a handful of young men, some as young as 18, it was the Battle of Britain, and in this lively and stirring history, acclaimed author Michael Korda, who served in the RAF himself, tells the complete story, witnessed through the tales of pilots, ground crews, and commanders on both sides. Korda sets the battle against the political happenings of 1930s Europe and introduces the visionary engineers and scientists in Germany and Britain whose aircraft and stunning innovations-like radar-would be used with dramatic results. He also explores the political struggle behind the battle. As the British Army evacuated from Dunkirk and France fell to the Germans, Korda shows how Air Chief Marshal Sir Hugh Dowding fought to prevent Prime Minister Winston Churchill from sending additional fighters to France, where Dowding knew they would be lost - perhaps the single most critical moment in British political history and the pivotal moment of the war.
