Item description for THOSE OTHER EAGLES: A TRIBUTE TO THE BRITISH, COMMONWEALTH AND FREE EUROPEAN FIGHTER PILOTS WHO CLAIMED BETWEEN TWO AND FOUR VICTORIES IN AERIAL COMBAT, 1939 - 1982 (A Companion Volume to Aces High) by Christopher Shores...

This massive, extensively researched volume is an indispensable companion to the eminent historian Christopher Shores' other seminal work (with Clive Williams), Aces High, Volumes one and two.

In those books he detailed the lives and exploits of those aces who achieved five or more aerial victories, and gave exhaustive information on each score, the where, what, when and how.

This completely new book follows the same format as the author now turns his attention to those claiming between two and four. Why this number? Because a single score could have been a fluke, whereas achieving more, points towards the potential skill and virtuosity of a fighter pilot, offering the promise of a higher total if the opportunity arose - and this is the nub of the matter. A fair majority of these men would have shot down many more enemy aircraft if the theatre of operations and timing had been right.

Nevertheless there are numerous illustrious and familiar names within these pages; people like Neil Cameron, Guy Gibson, Tom Gleave, Pat Hancock, Micky Martin, David Morgan, Rene Mouchotte, Jeffrey Quill, Fred Rosier, Whitney Straight, Peter Twiss, Geoffrey Wellum, and so many more, a great majority of whom lived fascinating lives in and out of the service. There are nearly 1800 entries and as many of the pilots are illustrated as is possible.
