Abstract
<p>With this book, Major Dave Becker has addressed an important hiatus in the military aviation history of South Africa. <em>On Wings of Eagles</em> is the first all-inclusive history of the South African Air Force to be published since 1970, when the SAAF (mistakenly!) celebrated their golden jubilee.</p> <p>The 1970 publication, <em>Per Aspera ad Astra,</em> was nonetheless a useful brochure and embodied the first attempt to present the entire history of the SAAF within one cover. It was, however, too superficial and far too 'commemorative', and, by 1994, had become hopelessly outdated.</p>
