Tales of the RAF (Royal Air Force) – 6 volume set (Don Patterson)

$79.00 $59.00

Twelve year old Harry Winslow is growing up in the English countryside of Hampton County – when his quiet life is interrupted by the World War! His father is sent to London and a Royal Air Force fighter squadron has been stationed in the fields next to the Winslow farm.

Amazed by the pilots and planes, Harry has found a special group of friends who are now very important to him. Recently, the pilots have uncovered a mystery at Hampton, but solving it will have to wait until after they have “scrambled” their squadron to protect London.

Join Harry on the airfield when the thundering fighter planes soar to intercept the enemy. Through sheer determination, the brave RAF pilots have made it impossible for the German Luftwaffe to gain an edge in the air above England. These are ordinary men, who do extraordinary deeds — the kinds of deeds that make men heroes!

About the Author

Don Patterson holds BA’s in Chemistry, Biology and Philosophy from University of Minnesota (Morris) as well as a MBA from the University of St. Thomas (St. Paul, MN). After 11 successful years as founder and owner of Independent Technology Systems, a printed circuit board servicing company, Don sold the company. While searching for books with topics that might interest his then 7 year old son, the search turned up two things: his son’s intense interest in WW II aircraft and the 12 year old that is inside us all. This was the basis for the start of an adventure that has now become a labor of love. His goal to get boys to start reading early and often! The first book is dedicated to his son Ian. Don, his wife Joan and his children Ian (9) and Elaine (4)reside in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.
