Publishers Description
Eagles' Wings presents the remarkable story of two friends who grew up in Battle Creek, Michigan during the 1930's. At the onset of World War II, both men embarked on separate paths that simultaneously thrust them into the terror of war amid the skies of Europe. Both were seriously wounded and would spend nearly a year as prisoners of war. Through an unlikely series of events, the two men were later reunited and sent by chance to an orthopedic hospital located just blocks away from their childhood homes. Lived by Air Force veterans Jack Curtis and Larry Jenkins, this book will take you back in time with them as they deliver a powerful first-hand account. Read along and enjoy their reflections. It's a kind of history no text book could capture and a kind of story even Hollywood couldn't top. "Eagles' a story of the incredible sacrifice of two heroes of the World War II generation, Jack Curtis and Larry Jenkins. More than that, it is a tremendous tale of friendship and camaraderie. It is an important window into the personal struggle that many of our veterans experienced." - Bob Dole, Former United States Senator "Eagles' Wings reveals the valor, strength and enduring friendships that emerge from the harsh conditions of war. Jack Curtis' and Larry Jenkins' stories of survival and recovery as prisoners of war are not only poignant, but also a testament of the sacrifices that our servicemen and servicewomen make to protect our freedoms." - Daniel K. Inouye, United States Senator Andrew Layton is a home school graduate who has enjoyed a passion for history for as long as he can remember. He published his first book, Wolverines in the Sky: Michigan's Fighter Aces of WWI, WWII and Korea at the age of sixteen.
