Bestselling author Michael Korda will discuss his latest book, With Wings Like Eagles: A History of the Battle of Britain.
New York Times bestselling author Michael Korda?s latest work With Wings Like Eagles: A
History of the Battle of Britain, takes readers back to the summer of 1940, when less than
2,000 fighter pilots of the Royal Air Force ? many no more than 18-years-old?stood
between Hitler and the victory that was almost within his grasp, Korda describes this intense
combat in the sky above Southern England, and at the same time traces the complex web of political, diplomatic, scientific, industrial and human decisions during the 1930s that led to this epic battle, the outcome of which would mean freedom or Nazi domination of Europe.http://www.bpl.org/korda.pdf
