Eagle in the Sky is a story about an era of agony and victory and about generations of air fighters who etched a glorious chapter in the annals of air warfare and the Israeli Air Force with incredible bravery, loyalty, and professionalism, giving their hearts and souls—and sometimes their lives—for a cause they believed in. The eagle in the sky is Ran Ronen, one of the most decorated fighter pilots of the Israeli Air Force. In his twenty-seven years of service, he flew every fighter plane, participated as a pilot and commander in every war from the Sinai Campaign through the Six Days War to the Yom Kippur War, flew more than 350 combat missions and downed seven enemy planes. Ronen is a natural fighter pilot, aviator, and warrior.

The personal and fascinating story of Ran Ronen’s military career begins in summer 1955, upon graduating from pilot training course number 18 in the era of propeller planes and culminates in the 1980s with the most advanced Mach 2 jet fighters ruling the skies of the Middle East. Following his discharge from the Air Force he served as the Israeli Consul General of the southwestern US in Los Angeles. Since his return to Israel, he has become involved in many ventures and initiated volunteer social projects for disenfranchised youth across the country. Ronen retired as a brigadier general from the Israeli Air Force and is an extraordinary man—a true hero and leader of men, whose personal story is one of the most eagerly anticipated military books of the year.
