WAR EAGLES by James Saxon Childers


Email this review


The picturesque and spectacular Eagle Squadron glowingly chronicled from the early days of its botaging military tradition, its rebellious deviations from routine ways, on to its shaking down into a vital factor of the R.A.F. There are the Americans who composed the original group and the men who led them; there are the operational jobs, the reports of combat, extensive accounts of individual fliers, specifically the record of the 71st Eagle Squadron, up to the day of transfer to the American flag. Exciting reportage -- and a human picture of young fliers.
