Gifted storyteller Winston Groom, the bestselling author of ForrestGump, has written the fascinating story of three extraordinary heroes whodefined aviation during the great age of flight: Charles Lindbergh, EddieRickenbacker, and Jimmy Doolittle. These cleverly interwoven tales of theirheart-stopping adventures take us from the feats of World War I through theheroism of World War II and beyond, including daring military raids andsurvival at sea, and will appeal to fans of Unbroken, TheGreatest Generation, and Flyboys.

With the world in peril during World War II, each manset aside great success and comfort to return to the skies for his most daringmission yet. Doolittle, a brilliant aviation innovator, would lead the TokyoRaid to retaliate for Pearl Harbor; Lindbergh, hero of the first solo flightacross the Atlantic, would fly combat missions in the South Pacific; andRickenbacker, World War I flying ace, would bravely hold his crew togetherwhile facing near-starvation and circling sharks after his plane went down in aremote part of the Pacific. Groom’s rich narrative tells the intertwinedstories—from broken homes to Medals of Honor (all three would receive one), barnstorming to the greatest raid of World War II, front-page triumph toanguished 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.”
