This review is from: The Desert Hawks: An American Volunteer Fighter Pilot's Story of Israel's War of Independence, 1948 (Hardcover)I found this book very informative in regards to how life was in a very young State of Israel in 1948! For those interested in Israeli history this book adds some insight to what it was like in those early years for the new IAF which consisted of mostly volunteers, and many of them American. Gives a brief WWII history of Leo Nomis prior to his service in the War of Independence. Here he relays life as it was for him plying the skies over Israel! If your looking for high flying action and dog fights you won't find it in this book it relates more on the day to day of flying patrols during the time. Still the book offers very informative information and is a great reference tool to the 1st air force in Israel.
