THE MILLIONAIRES' UNIT: THE ARISTOCRATIC FLYBOYS WHO FOUGHT THE GREAT WAR AND INVENTED AMERICAN AIRPOWER., Wortman, Marc.
62 Wortman, Marc. THE MILLIONAIRES' UNIT: THE ARISTOCRATIC FLYBOYS WHO FOUGHT THE GREAT WAR AND INVENTED AMERICAN AIRPOWER.
New York PublicAffairs 2006 1586483285 / 9781586483289 First Edition Very Good+ Very Good+ 
313 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w photographs, map. "(T)he story of a gilded generation of young men from the zenith of privilege: a Rockefeller, a Taft, the son on the head of the Union Pacific Railroad, a son of J.P. Morgan's leading partner, and several who counted friends and relatives among presidents and statesmen of the day. Most were students at Yale in 1916, striving for rewards on the athletic fields, in school organizations, and in Skull & Bones. They had it all and, remarkably by modern standards, they were prepared to risk it all to fight a distant war in France. Driven by the belief that their membership in the American elite required certain sacrifices, schooled in heroism and the nature of leadership, they were determined to be first into the conflict, leading the way ahead of America's declaration that it would join the Great War in Europe. At the heart of the group was the Yale flying club, six of whose members are the heroes of this book. They would share rivalries over girlfriends, jealousies over membership in Skull & Bones, and fierce ambition to be the most daring young man over the battlefields of France, where the casualties among flyers were chillingly high." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling.
