Description

Gifted storyteller Winston Groom, the bestselling author of Forrest
Gump
, 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, including daring military raids and
survival at sea, and will appeal to fans of Unbroken, The
Greatest Generation
, and Flyboys.

With the world in peril during World War II, each man
set aside great 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 near-starvation and circling sharks after his plane went down in a
remote part of the Pacific. Groom's rich narrative tells the intertwined
stories—from broken homes to Medals of Honor (all three would receive one), barnstorming to the greatest raid of World War II, front-page triumph to
anguished tragedy, and near-death to ultimate survival—of these three men who took to the sky,
time and again, to become exemplars of the spirit of the "greatest generation."
