Great book. I have heard and read popular stories concerning these men but diving deep into their stories simultaneously was a truly remarkable journey through early aviation history. Not a dull moment.
Incredible. One of those that I listened to twice.
Narrative history at its best. You don't have to love history or aviation to enjoy this book. A balanced account of three pioneers of early American aviator, warts, eccentricities and all. Beautifully written and narrated with style.
What a remarkable account of aviation history! I felt like I was on the journey with everyone. All details included were necessary without much waffling.
Back-and-forth between characters and time frames is a little confusing, but I'm not sure how it could have been written better. All 3 men were so pivotal to how we understand life now. Research and narration were excellent! I'm buying a paper copy for my husband, who reads old school. This book's a keeper.
Read it 3 times just excellent book
I agree! Not a dull moment!
Great book about three of the great pioneers of flight. Detailed stories about the trials and tribulations that came with the completion of their incredible aeronautical feats, and the advances that were made due to their continuous experimentation with flight. This book had me laughing, tearing up, but most importantly, it made me proud to come from the nation that these men helped build!!! Great American story!!!!!
Wow! Incredible. Better than fiction.
Very insightful stories of the impact made to the advancement of aviation by Lindbergh, Dolittle and Rickenbacher
I just loved this book! The more I understand what a tremendous generation of men and bravery delivered us from the Second World War! I also love the narrative of Robertson Dean!
Wonderfully written and masterfully read!! The research into this story is amazing!! Thanks for sharing this history and Knowledge with me!!
Outstanding all the way around. Highly recommend.
