Summary
The story of passionate risk-taking, of young men braving dangerous flights in primitive aircraft. These "cowboys of the air" are forgotten heroes of the war, who flew without guns and embodied an improvisational spirit that was key to Allied victory. Their story includes the American civilian chosen to fly Winston Churchill to secret wartime meetings during the darkest days of WW II
