IIn the early years of the twentieth century, three Americans would push the outer limits of aviation, drawing front-page headlines and global adulation. In The Aviators, Winston Groom recounts how Charles Lindbergh, Eddie Rickenbacker, and Jimmy Doolittle redefined heroism through their genius, daring, and courage.

World War I ace Rickenbacker bravely held his crew together after his plane went down in the Pacific. Lindbergh, hero of the first trans-Atlantic solo flight, flew combat missions in the South Pacific. And Doolittle, a brilliant aviation innovator, led the daring Tokyo Raid to retaliate for Pearl Harbor.

This is the story of three heroes who defined aviation during the great age of flight.
