In the Summer of 1940, fewer than three thousand young fighter pilots of the Royal Air Force stood between Hitler and the victory that seemed almost within grasp.

In this superb history of three epic months that saved the world, Michael Korda brilliantly re-creates the intensity of combat in "the long, delirious, burning blue" of the sky above southern England - while tracing, perhaps for the first time, the entire complex web of political, diplomatic, scientific industrial and human decisions during the 1930s that inexorably led to the world's first, greatest, and most decisive air battle. "With Wings Like Eagles" brings to vivid life the extraordinary men and women on both sides of the conflict - from Winston Churchill, Neville Chamberlain, and Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring to the ground crews, the German pilots, the American volunteers, and the courageous airmen and airwomen of the RAF.
