As activity in the Battle of Britain began to gain a lot of attention in October of 1940, Americans came to the British call to fly Hurricanes and Spitfires and fill the depleted ranks in the RAF. Nearly 250 men were selected by the Knight Committee to fly in what became known as the "Eagle Squadrons."
