Yvonne Kays

Yvonne was inspired by the story of her uncle, 1st Lt. William T. Eaves, the pilot of a B-24 bomber and recipient of a Silver Star. Research disclosed that most of the crew received both a Silver Star and a Purple Heart, and uncovered an incredible story of courage and danger, romance and faith. Silver Wings Falling Down is offered as unpublished historical fiction based on military history and their own true stories. These unsung heroes helped destroy the German war machine and were shot down over German territory on their sixteenth mission. Learn more.
