1 North, Peter. Foreword by Air Chief Marshal Sir Christopher Foxley-Norris. EAGLES HIGH. THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN - 50th ANNIVERSARY.
Leo Cooper, London, 1990. 
125 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0850528895 Profusely illustrated in colour with drawings, maps. "In June 1940, the German war machine stood poised on the French coast looking towards England. Hermann Goring, flushed with the recent successes of his Luftwaffe, promised Hitler he would sweep the RAF fromthe sky, laying the Channel open for a German invasion. Yet that invasion never took place. Despite the bravery and professionalism of the Luftwaffe, a h a n d f u l of Allied pilots - known forever as 'The Few' - confronted and ultimately defeated the best Goring could throw against them. This is the story of those few months in 1940 when the future of the world hung in the balance. British, Am er ic an s, C an ad ians, Autralians, South Africans, Belgians, Poles, Germans, Italians - this special Fiftieth Anniversary edition tells the story of the men and women of all nationalities who fought in what, even before it had begun, had already be en nam ed 'Th e B att le of Britain'." One tiny corner bump. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, small line indentation on rear panel. Very Good+/Very Good+
