The Aviators is the true story of Eddie Rickenbacker, Jimmy Doolittle, and Charles Lindbergh – three extraordinary Americans who between World War I and World War II pushed the limits of flight and redefined heroism through their genius, daring and uncommon courage.
Winston Groom’s rich narrative tells their intertwined stories – from broken homes to Medals of Honor (all three would receive them); barnstorming to the greatest raid of World War II; front-page triumph to anguished tragedy; and near death to ultimate survival – as all took to the sky, time and again, to become exemplars of the spirit of the “greatest generation”.
