Another well researched and written book from Time-Life, this book details the founding and early years of America's major airlines. It contains a wealth of information on the personalities, struggles , competition and even the airplanes that constituted these new giants of transportation. A suprising fact was that the airline routes were really established by the U.S. Postmaster General, when airmail accounted for more revenue to the airlines than passenger fares. A must have for aviation enthusiasts.
