 "When Eagles Soared" (Volume 1)

This book highlights the deeds, experiences and memories of those who fought the air war in World War Two - men who actually saw their opponent through their spinning propeller.  Much likes the knights of old, these warriors faced one another and fought to the death in the cold skies.  Return with us to those glory days when men took to the skies - one came home covered with glory.....the other did not return.
