  1. There s not much to this book beyond your typical black and white war movie The characters are just human enough to act out the plot, but lack the humanity necessary to react to it Action is the key to this book and if a few people die to make that action happen then that s just a happenstance of a war story.The human truth about war is far deeper than anything portrayed in Where Eagles Never Flew The book is lacking in the complexities of grief that the death of a fellow soldier or pilot can br [...]


  2. Where Eagels Never Flew is the Kindle edition of Chasing the Wind When the review copies of Chasing the Wind were sent out, I received an email from a reviewer in the UK apologizing that he could not review my book on time The reason Wing Commander and RAF Battle of Britain ace Bob Doe had walked into his shop, seen the copy of my book on his desk and asked to read it Well, as the reviewer pointed out, you just don t say no to Battle of Britain fighter pilots, certainly not when they have two DS [...]


  3. Compelling and exciting tale of how the RAF kept the Luftwaffe at bay during the Battle of Britain Once I d started I found it hard to put this down the author creates an authentic story line about the RAF pilots, and their support staff, who against all the odds managed to match whatever the Lutwaffe threw at them Characters come to life as the old hand officer pilots with their public school accents and background find it hard to accept the pilot sergeants, with their rough working class ways [...]


  4. This is a long book, but needs to be It spans the six months or so from May to October of 1940, from the Fall of France to the Battle of Britain and the valiant defense by the Royal Air Force.It records the thoughts and actions of characters on both sides of the battle some of the main characters include an RAF Squadron Leader and his fiancee, several of the members of his Hawker Hurricane squadron, which is on the front lines of the Battle, a pair of Luftwaffe fighter pilots, and a female Luftw [...]
