Highly recommended. 1927 had a summer that saw Lindbergh fly the Atlantic, television invented and much more. Most interesting bits of this for me are that:
- Henry Ford bought part of Brazil to grow rubber for tyres, and called it Fordlandia. It was a hopeless catastrophe.
- Al Capone’s brother was bodyguard to the president when he opened Mount Rushmore.
Lindbergh turns out to be a proper idiot though.
