Summary:
Charles Lindbergh, Eddie Rickenbacker, and Jimmy Doolittle were heroes of the aviation age. 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. Doolittle, a brilliant aviation innovator, led the Tokyo Raid to retaliate for Pearl Harbor; Lindbergh, hero of the first solo flight across the Atlantic, flew combat missions in the South Pacific.
