About the Author

Michael Korda is the author of Ulysses S. Grant, Ike, Hero, and Charmed Lives. Educated at Le Rosey in Switzerland and at Magdalen College, Oxford, he served in the Royal Air Force. He took part in the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 and on its fiftieth anniversary was awarded the Order of Merit of the People's Republic of Hungary. He and his wife, Margaret, make their home in Dutchess County, New York.


New York Times best-selling author Korda's (Ike: An American Hero) account of the Battle of Britain focuses on lesser-known details about the political, diplomatic, military, and technical behind-the-scenes events and the extraordinary men and women involved on both sides of the conflict. John Lee's (Cochrane) distinctly British, at times Sean Connery-like narration steadily paces this fascinating new contribution to the literature on the battle, which adds important insights not covered in other titles on this subject. Recommended for university libraries and larger public libraries. [Embeddable audio clip available through; the Harper hc was "strongly a literate and readable supplement to existing books on the subject," LJ 10/15/08.-Ed.]-Dale Farris, Groves, TX Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
