From GARTH ENNIS, the creator of the hit AMC television shows THE BOYS and PREACHER, this "first time in softcover" edition collects the critically-acclaimed six issue limited series, celebrates the 80th Anniversary of the founding of the Tuskegee Airmen in 1941, and exposes new readers to this incredible chapter in U.S. and military history! DREAMING EAGLES tells the story of the first African-American fighter pilots to join the United States Army Air Force in WWII and whose humble beginnings in Tuskegee, Alabama propelled them into the deadly skies above Hitler's Third Reich. Not only were they instrumental against the Nazi war machine, but also braved an equally great challenge, overcoming everyday bigotry amongst their fellow American soldiers, as well as civilians at home. High in the heavens, they fought a battle that would change their country for all time.
