When America was suddenly thrust into World War II, three of the nation's finest aviators set aside civilian life to return to the skies. James Doolittle, a brilliant aviation innovator, would lead the daring Tokyo Raid to retaliate for Pearl Harbor; Charles Lindbergh, hero of the first solo flight across the Atlantic, would fly combat missions in the South Pacific; and Eddie Rickenbacker, World War I flying ace, would bravely hold his crew together while facing near-starvation and circling sharks after his plane went down. Finding unexpected parallels between the three men, here the author of The Allies tells their intertwined stories, creating a vivid portrait of the Greatest Generation.
