During WWII, Jed’s English father serves as a fighter pilot overseas, while Jed and his mother move back to her Tsimshian community on Canada's west coast. When the military sets up a naval base in town, Jed is hired to help out, honored it seems, for both his father's bravery and his own native skills as a hunter. Presented with a military jacket, Jed finds an allegiance to his country and a pride in his mixed heritage that he's never felt before. But one day Jed's world is shattered. His best friend Tadashi, along with the other members of the nearby Japanese village, are declared enemy aliens and told to prepare to leave their homes. Now Jed must ask himself where his allegiance really belongs...to his country's rigid code, or to the truth that is buried in his Tsimshian soul.

EAGLES AT WAR Walter J. Boyne Eagles at War is the most compelling fictional account yet of World War II in the air. Covering every theater of the war, it combines some of the most realistic combat action ever written with the dramatic story of the war’s impact on industry and society. Colonel Walter Boyne continues the saga, started in Trophy for Eagles, of America’s rise to aviation supremacy. In the secret research laboratories of the Luftwaffe and in the skies over Europe and the Pacific, in the boardrooms where the modern military-industrial complex was forged and at clandestine meetings where a defeated Germany’s top-secret-weapons expert negotiates safe passage to the United States, Eagles at War tells the story of aviation’s role in the emergence of the Unites States as a superpower. As the coming global war becomes inevitable, American aviation pioneers Frank Banfield and Hadley Roget put down their peacetime tools and become key architects of Allied victory in the air. Their nemesis, Bruno Hafner, is Hitler’s man in charge of developing the first jet fighter and other wonder weapons, using slave labor toiling in ghastly underground factories. Leading America’s aviation buildup is General Henry Caldwell, whose merciless prodding of the American aviation industry ultimately results in victory, even though he is the vulnerable target of sexual blackmail. Eagles at War coveys the unprecedented scope and ferocity of the air war through the eyes of key players and various airmen from all sides of the conflict. In bringing to life pilots and planes, generals and aviation giants, heroes and villains, Boyne makes superb use of his talents as a military pilot, historian, and novelist.

In the North, a lanky lawyer named Abraham Lincoln was recovering from a brutal political setback. In the South, eloquent US Senator Jefferson Davis was risking all in a race for governor of his native Mississippi. And far to the Southwest, the future of the frontier was being decided as the US Army, under Colonel Bull Moose Sumner, faced the growing alliance of Native Americans led by the great Mangas Coloradas and determined to defend their ancestral lands. For First Lieutenant Nathanial Barrington it was his first test as a professional soldier, following orders he distrusted in an undeclared war without conscience or quarter-and his test as a man when he met the Apache woman warrior Jocita in a night lit by passion that would yield to a day of dark decisions. Originally published under the pen name Frank Burleson

When Eagles Dared is a salute to the men and women who participated in World War II and the filmmakers who have immortalised their stories on screen. It tells both the story of the historical events of this first truly ‘world war’ and of the films that have depicted these events - comparing the cinematic myth with the historical reality - as a guide to history through cinema. When Eagles Dared portrays the people who participated in the war, from the evacuation of the Allied forces from France at Dunkirk through to the battle for Berlin and beyond. Each chapter discusses a theatre of war, an event, a campaign or battle by explaining the historical events as they unfold and then examines how filmmakers have represented them. Chapters discuss the war in the skies (Battle of Britain and The Dam Busters), the sea (Sink the Bismarck! and The Cruel Sea) and the North African desert (The Battle of El Alamein and Tobruk). There are ‘special mission’ movies including Where Eagles Dare and The Dirty Dozen, classic tales of ingenuity (The Great Escape), valour (Saving Private Ryan), and human endurance (The Bridge on the River Kwai). Offering a unique view of war through the lenses of over 150 diverse films that have shaped our perceptions of the conflict, When Eagles Dared is illustrated with rare stills and posters from this ever popular genre.

Eagles on Their Buttons is a fascinating examination of the Fifth Regiment of Infantry, United States Colored Troops -- the Union Army's first black regiment from Ohio. Although the Fifth USCT was one of more than 150 regiments of black troops making up more than 10 percent of the Union Army at the end of the war, it was unique. The majority of USCT regiments were made up of freed men who viewed the army as an escape from slavery and a chance to take up arms against their former masters. The men serving in the 5th USCT, however, were freemen who were raised in a northern state and saw serving in the army both as a way to gain equal rights under the law and as an opportunity to prove their worth as men.
