An Epic Story of Heroism, Friendship and SacrificeAudiobook CD - 2015
The inspirational story of the U.S. Navy's most famous aviator duo: Lieutenant Tom Hudner, a white, blue-blooded New Englander, and Ensign Jesse Brown, an African American sharecropper's son from Mississippi. The heir to a Massachusetts grocery store empire, Tom passed up Harvard to fly fighter planes for his country. Jesse, fascinated by aircraft since childhood, defied the odds-and the prejudices of his time-to become the Navy's first black carrier pilot.
