This is an auction for AN AMERICAN HERO: THE TRUE STORY OF CHARLES LINDBERGH, by Barry Denenberg.

"Denenberg scrutinizes Lindbergh's Nazi sympathies and the kidnapping of his infant son in this hard-hitting and ambitious biography which challenges readers to question how men who shape their times are in turn shaped themselves."
- a *** starred *** review in Publishers Weekly (US)

“Denenberg delivers a fascinating, evenhanded, and carefully researched examination of the aviator, setting the stage with a brief and thrilling history of the race for the Orteig prize for transatlantic travel that leaves Lindbergh on the rain-soaked runway of New York's Roosevelt Field, about to take off for Paris. Having baited the hook for even the most reluctant reader, he then backtracks to Lindbergh's childhood and covers the aviator's life in sequence. Well-placed excerpts from Lindbergh's own writings and from those of Anne Morrow Lindbergh effectively position the reader in the excitement of the moment. Of special note is Denenberg's fact-based, nonsensational handling of the tragic kidnapping of Lindbergh's child and the man's controversial views on racial superiority and support of the Nazi regime. Excellent photographs, charts, and maps complement the text, which includes a thorough bibliography. A superior biography, fair and respectful, this is highly recommended.”
