Overview

EAGLES AT WAR

Walter J. Boyne

Eagles at War is the most compelling fictional account yet of World War II in the air. Covering every theater of the war, it combines some of the most realistic combat action ever written with the dramatic story of the war’s impact on industry and society. Colonel Walter Boyne continues the saga, started in Trophy for Eagles, of America’s rise to aviation supremacy. In the secret research laboratories of the Luftwaffe and in the skies over Europe and the Pacific, in the boardrooms where the modern military-industrial complex was forged and at clandestine meetings where a defeated Germany’s top-secret-weapons expert negotiates safe passage to the United States, Eagles at War tells the story of aviation’s role in the emergence of the Unites States as a superpower.

As the coming global war becomes inevitable, American aviation pioneers Frank Banfield and Hadley Roget put down their peacetime tools and become key architects of Allied victory in the air. Their nemesis, Bruno Hafner, is Hitler’s man in charge of developing the first jet fighter and other wonder weapons, using slave labor toiling in ghastly underground factories. Leading America’s aviation buildup is General Henry Caldwell, whose merciless prodding of the American aviation industry ultimately results in victory, even though he is the vulnerable target of sexual blackmail.

Eagles at War coveys the unprecedented scope and ferocity of the air war through the eyes of key players and various airmen from all sides of the conflict. In bringing to life pilots and planes, generals and aviation giants, heroes and villains, Boyne makes superb use of his talents as a military pilot, historian, and novelist.
