This title features a foreword by Len Deighton. On 15 June 1919 John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown took off from Newfoundland, America, to attempt the first non-stop crossing of the Atlantic Ocean. Some 16 hours and 1,900 miles later they landed in Connemara, Ireland, to become national heroes. Now published in paperback, this is the first accurate account of one of history's most significant and dramatic flights, made in an open-cockpit Vickers Vimy converted bomber. The author draws on the personal records and flying logbook of the pilots, and sets the story against the birth of manned power flight and the aftermath of World War One in Britain.
