Description

Author:
Robert de la Croix, born in Lorient in 1921, is a novelist and a poet, a marine officer and a producer of radio and tv show. Three of his eighteen books were awarded by the french academy and his whole artwork received the Prix de la Mer in 1985. His love for the sea and shipping was inspired by his childhood in Nantes. After the Second World War, he created and directed a magazine about poetry and wrote his first book, Les Disparus du Pôle, in 1953.

Abstract:
Here is an exciting chronicle of the daring men and women who risked their lives for a dream : the aerial conquest of the atlantic. Heroic fliers like Lindbergh, Nungesser, Coli, Alcock, Brown, Earhart, thrilled the world with their exploits, disregarding their own safety and trusting to courage, skill and luck to get their flimsy planes over the treacherous waters. Some made it, others failed, but they all played starring roles in a historic drama of achievement that opened the way for jet age of air transportation !
