Those Other Eagles by Christopher Shores - multi signed aviation book


A Tribute to the British, Commonwealth and Free European Fighter Pilots Who Claimed Between Two and Four Victories in Aerial Combat, 1939 - 1982 (Companion Volume to Aces High). 

This substantial, 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 victories.

This is a Limited Edition copy by Vector Fine Art - one of just 60 that carry 20 original signatures of combat veterans on two bookplates. This particular copy also contains, on the title page, the original signatures of the author Christopher Shores plus six of the aircrew featured within the book.
