The Lovereading4Kids commentHeâ€™s one of the finest writers of childrenâ€™s literature in Ireland today and with In the Claws of the Eagle Aubrey Flegg has produced a fitting end to an unforgettable trilogy about love, about art, about music and about history.
Adults will enjoy this trilogy, of which this is the third as much as 12 year olds and teenagers. The Rainbow Bridge is the second and Wings over Delft is the first one. Wings over Delft begins in mid 17th century Holland, The Rainbow Bridge takes us onwards through the 18th century and the French Revolution and finally this unforgettable trilogy comes to its conclusion with In the Claws of the Eagle in Austria in the early 20th century and then onwards to the Nazis and their acquisition of a massive art collection.

In The Claws Of The Eagle by Aubrey FleggThe year is 1913. The portrait of Louise is hanging in the home of a Jewish family, the Abrahams, in Vienna. After the Anschluss of 1939, Izaac is sent to the Theresienstadt concentration camp and then to Auschwitz. The portrait falls into the hands of Erich Hoffman, and seems to join the art collection being amassed on the orders of Adolf Hitler.
