I just read with interest your new history book, Eagles over Husky, a fascinating account of the air campaign in the Sicilian campaign during World War 2. I do enjoy specialised history books focused on one aspect of a campaign and your book was very enjoyable.
Eagles over Husky is an exceptional debut for a young scholar. It combines excellent research, clear and evocative writing, and deep reflection to give us totally new insights not only into Operation Husky in 1943, but the whole higher direction of the Allied war effort in Europe during this critical phase. Fitzgerald-Black provides us with a model of how the role of airpower in the major campaigns of the Second World War can best be understood.
