Robert Gandt
Angels in the Sky 
Tues, Nov 14 • 7:30 pm • Mandel JCC

Angels in the Sky is the exhilarating account of a ragtag band of volunteer airmen who fought for Israel during the War of Independence. They arrived from America, Canada, Britain, France, and South Africa. Almost all were World War II combat veterans. Many, but not all, were Jewish, and many knowingly violated their nation’s embargoes on the shipment of arms and aircraft to Israel. Surrounded by Egyptian, Jordanian, Iraqi, Syrian and Lebanese forces, Israel would have been crushed without the air support provided by the“angels in the sky.”

Robert Gandt is a former U.S. Navy fighter pilot, airline captain, and the award winning author of sixteen books of military and aviation history. His account of the Battle of Okinawa, The Twilight Warriors, was the 2011 winner of the Morison Prize for Literature. His screen credits include the CBS series Pensacola: Wings of Gold.
