"Empire of the Air"

Here's the book I've been talking about. Four Solder-stars. Strong on history and biography, but a bit light in the Knack department. Still, strongly recommended.

  1. I've very much enjoyed your thoughts on this great book. What a story! As an engineer and inventor with quite a few patents, Armstrong's lifetime travails with infringers and attackers were a sobering education. I posted on "Empire" when it first came out, way back in the pre-web usenet days:

    Lots of good material on the Ken Burns site:
