EDDIE RICKENBACKER: An American Hero in the Twentieth Century
Daring, skilled, and rugged, Rickenbacker epitomized the American spirit in the 20th century. He raced cars in the early days of the automobile, and flew planes in the Great War, downing 26 enemy planes. Failing as an automaker after the war, he joined Eastern Airlines in 1934, building it into a major carrier. 32 pages of photos.
