Summary
While aviation pioneer Eddie Rickenbacker is best know as a flying ace who battled Germany's Red Baron during World War I, Enduring Courage begins with accounts of Rickenbacker's auto racing career. As a young teenager, he taught himself automobile mechanics and learned to race cars, competing in the Indianapolis 500 before the war. This biography continues with details of Rickenbacker's German-speaking Swiss background, his phenomenal war record, including riveting descriptions of aerial dogfights, and an overview of his postwar career. Any reader interested in the 20th century, the history of speed, and Eddie Rickenbacker himself will be eager to pick up this thrilling account. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
