The RAF Eagle Squadrons
by Philip D. Caine
This amazing book brings to life the 245 brave Americans who became the legendary Eagle Squadrons of the Royal Air Force. Itching to get into the action before the United States was brought into the war in 1941, these pilots, each of whom has his biography recorded here, wanted to contribute to the war effort, stop the Nazi invasion of the free world, and fly the best fighters of the day.
