Description

Continuing the brilliant World War Two fighter pilot series, this time the theatre of war is the incredible story of the Siege of Malta. By turns brutal, funny, tragic and heroic Band of Eagles is a spellbinding read, perfect for fans of Ken Follet and Robert Radcliffe. 'A gripping fusion of thrills and historical plausibility . . . a fine balance of freshness and authenticity' Telegraph Summer 1941. The tiny island of Malta has become the most bombed place on earth. The Germans and Italians want to destroy it. For the fighter pilots of the RAF, initially equipped with ageing Hurricanes and outnumbered in the air, defeat seems almost certain. Flight commanders Englishman Kit Curtis and American Ossie Wolf have survived the Fall of France and the Battle of Britain but Curtis remains idealistic and eager to prove himself. Wolf, by contrast, is ruthless and thrives in the chaos of imminent invasion. But as each man is tested to the limit, they come to share a fresh understanding. What readers are saying about Band of Eagles: 'Beautiful writing. Superbly crafted work' 'A real treat. I strongly recommend this book to anyone with a love of compelling war stories and good story telling' 'Movingly told and backed up by impeccable research'
