    A Gripping Tale of Three Aviation Heroes Winston Groom¿s prose

    A Gripping Tale of Three Aviation Heroes

    Winston Groom’s prose never disappoints, and this gripping history of three aviation giants is no exception. Following the lives of Charles Lindberg, Jimmy Doolittle, and Eddie Rickenbacker, this engaging account provides a personal angle to this pivotal era in human innovation and heroism. Although aviation experts may not be surprised by much of the information herein, this is nonetheless a well-researched and well-written account that I found very fresh and insightful. Although it may be difficult to imagine a time when air travel was in its early stages, Groom’s storytelling brings this unforgettable era in history alive with an intriguing attention to detail that will keep you turning the pages. A fine specimen of nonfiction that every aviation enthusiast or history buff should read. If you enjoy this book, another insightful and historic account on early aviation is Adeleide Ovington's memoir "An Aviator's Wife."

    Loved it

    I love history but even if you don't love it you will find this book an easy read. Follow three well known aviators and see how similar their lives were and how they all served not only aviation but the nation. I have recommended it to many
