Ve him a wider scope of usefulness he announced he would devote himself wholeheartedly to the advance of aeronautics.. subject was great but the text was like a personal log of facts and events extremely juvenile and dry Amazing that he had written and published this the same year he made the flight I am sure there are many other well written books about these momentous events

Charles A. Lindbergh ð 3 summary

Ion Flying was his trade his means of livelihood but the love of it burned in him with a fine passion and his fame ga. I have a copy of this book early 1st edition in excellent condition and signed by the author It is a great book and I would not want to take anything away from its importance and that of the epic flight it records However there seems to be some confusion in some of the reviews that the flight was the first ever non stop crossing of the Atlantic by air This is not so of course This was accomplished by Alcock and Brown 8 years earlier in 1919 There is a book of the flight by Brown which I also have a copy of Why is this not so well known There are 2 possible reasons Firstly neither aviators Brown was the navigator and Alcock the pilot were American Secondly Alcock was killed in an aviation accident shortly after the flight and was unable to write about the flight He was also an RAF pilot and not a self publicist So there you have it Lindbergh s book is excellent and of course describes a solo flight but please consider it in context I thankoo
