THE MILLIONAIRES' UNIT The Aristocratic Flyboys Who Fought the Great War and Invented American Air Power

by | Read by Patrick Lawlor

History • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

A sense of duty and a romantic fascination with war propelled six members of the Yale Flying Club as they headed to France to become Allied flying aces in WWI. Marc Wortman's account of their heroism begins in New Haven. This gives narrator Patrick Lawlor the chance to tell rollicking stories about the collegiate careers of the war heroes before following them to France, where their story turns into a wartime adventure. In both venues, Lawlor brings their experiences alive, taking listeners into the social whirl of Yale's clubs and secret societies, and bringing them along for the ride in chilly, oxygen-poor cockpits, creating high drama from this real-life account of aerial warfare.
