Description
 
Brings vividly to life one of the most daring figures of WW1 -- fighter ace Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker. Rickenbacker burst onto the national scene as one of the country’s first champion race car drivers. But his lasting fame came in WW1 as a fearless fighter pilot who chased the Flying Circus of the legendary Red Baron above the battlefields of France. He shot down 26 enemy planes in just 7 months. After the war, he was one of the founders of Eastern Airlines. And in a dramatic chapter of WW2, when a plane on which Rickenbacker flew as a civilian crash-landed in the Pacific Ocean, he survived as a castaway for 24 days before a rescue that defied all odds. “The unparalleled story of a hero & the dramatic events that shaped our country & our history.”
