The greatest book on the Battle of Britain ever written' Wayne Davies In May 1940, Group Captain Peter Townsend took command of 85 Squadron, tasked with preparing it for the defence of Great Britain against German bombers. It was the beginning of the long, hot, lethal summer in which the RAF and the Luftwaffe fought to the death over England in the furious conflict which ultimately saved Britain from Nazi invasion. DUEL OF EAGLES, Townsend s epic account of the Battle of Britain, is widely acknowledged as the classic account of this desperate, defining clash which would become one of the greatest triumphs in British military history. If I were going to choose a single book to cover the Battle of Britain in a comprehensive manner I would choose DUEL OF EAGLES Daily Telegraph A remarkable exercise in research at air-crew levels. He writes of air combat with verve and at times almost with poetry Sunday Times Lively and well written … encompasses moments of exhilaration and terror Kirkus Reviews *** Peter Townsend was born in Rangoon, Burma in 1914. He trained at the Royal Air Force College Cranwell from 1933 to 1935. He served with No 1 and No 43 Squadron and in May 1940 took command of No 85 Squadron leading it into the Battle of Britain with outstanding skill and determination. Townsend enjoyed an equally distinguished peacetime career, serving as Equerry to King George VI, from 1944 until his death in 1952. Following his ill-fated relationship with Princess Margaret, Townsend began a new life in France where he turned to writing and settled happily with his family until 1995 when he died at the age of 80.

Reviews

On Mar 24 2011, Patrick1952 said:
Peter Townsend provides excellent background describing the development of fighter and bomber technology and warfare theory during and after WW1 of the British RAF and the German Luftwaffe, leading up to the Battle of Britain. A very personal and compassionate rendering of the tragic conflict between Germany and England.
