Overview

Duel of Eagles by Peter Townsend

In honor of the 60th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, return to the exciting first days of air warfare and see how these early events ultimately shaped this seminal struggle. A stirring survey—led by a pilot who himself took part in the conflict—traces the battle's background from the defeat and destruction of the Kaiser's air force to the long days of 1940 when Spitfires and Messerschmitts fought to the death over England. The colorful, dramatic, and evocative stories tell of dogfights in the sky, ruthless political maneuvers, legendary heroes (like the "Red Baron")—and then show how all this led to the furious air combat that saved Britain from German invasion. 6 1/4 X 9 1/4.

The headline says it all. The author, Peter Townsend, was an RAF Hurricane pilot during the summer of 1940. The book is crammed with information, but Townsend's easy style makes it a great read. You'll come away with an insider's view of the greatest aerial battle in history.
