Early in the twentieth century, two new American super figures—the racecar driver and the flying ace—would become the embodiment of American skilled manhood, and no individual did more to create and intensify these new roles than Eddie Rickenbacker. John F. Ross shares the terrible choice faced by early aviators from his new book, Enduring Courage: Ace Pilot Eddie Rickenbacker and the Dawn of the Age of Speed, available in bookstores everywhere.
