Summary
Gifted storyteller Winston Groom has written the fascinating story of three extraordinary heroes who defined aviation during the great age of flight: Charles Lindbergh, Eddie Rickenbacker, and Jimmy Doolittle. These cleverly interwoven tales of their heart-stopping adventures take us from the feats of World War I through the heroism of World War II and beyond. With the world in peril during World War II, each man set aside success and comfort to return to the skies for his most daring mission yet. Doolittle, a brilliant aviation innovator, would lead the Tokyo Raid to retaliate for Pearl Harbor; Lindbergh, hero of the first solo flight across the Atlantic, would fly combat missions in the South Pacific; and Rickenbacker, World War I flying ace, would bravely hold his crew together while facing starvation and sharks after his plane went down in a remote part of the Pacific. Groom's rich narrative tells the intertwined stories of these three men who took to the sky to become exemplars of the spirit of the "greatest generation."
