Pan Am at War

How the Airline Secretly Helped America Fight World War II

By John H. Hill & Mark Cotta Vaz
Narrated by Mike Chamberlain / 12 hours 33 minutes

Pan Am at War chronicles the airline's historic role in advancing aviation and serving America's national interest before and during World War II. From its inception, Pan American Airways operated as the "wings of democracy," spanning six continents and placing the country at the leading edge of international aviation. At the same time, it was clandestinely helping to fight America's wars. Utilizing government documents, declassified Freedom of Information Act material, and company documents, the authors have uncovered stories of Pan Am's stunning role as an instrument of American might. They detail the airline's role in building air bases in Latin America and countering Axis interests that threatened the Panama Canal; the dangerous seventeen-thousand-mile journey that took President Roosevelt to the high-stakes Casablanca Conference with Winston Churchill; the daring flight that delivered uranium for the atomic bomb; and more.

Filled with larger-than-life characters, and revelations of the vision and technology it took to dominate the skies, Pan Am at War provides a gripping unknown history of the American Century.
