Full Description:

First Across is the exciting story of the first transatlantic flight. The flight, made in 1919, took a six-man crew nearly three weeks to complete. This book describes in detail the entire operation: the planning, the men and their aircraft, the primitive radio communication, and method of air navigation.

In First Across Richard K. Smith has used photographs, cartoons, and even advertisements of the era to help evoke that spring of 1919, an important moment in the history of transportation.
