Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few American icons provoke more enduring fascination than Charles Lindbergh—renowned for his one-man transatlantic flight in 1927, remembered for the sorrow surrounding the kidnapping and death of his firstborn son in 1932, and reviled by many for his opposition to America's entry into World War II. Lindbergh's is "a dramatic and disturbing American story," says the Los Angeles Times Book Review, and this biography—the first to be written with unrestricted access to the Lindbergh archives and extensive interviews of his friends, colleagues, and close family members—is "the definitive account."

Grandma Klumpy, January 10, 2012 (view all comments by Grandma Klumpy)
I have only just begun this book and from what I have read this book is an interesting and thoroughly researched book. The author even included James Stewart's childhood recollection of the New York to Paris flight. FYI: James Stewart portrayed Lindberg in "Spirit of St.Louis". Who would have thought to include this? A. Scott Berg did. I like this book so much that I am already recommending it to friends.
