First World Flight – the Odyssey of Billy Mitchell by Spencer Lane
I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest and objective review.
First World Flight is a historical audiobook focusing on the growth of US aviation beginning in 1924, the four airmen and General Billy Mitchell all who were responsible for saving the US aviation program through their patriotism, creativity, and dedication. Not being a historian or familiar with the history of aviation, I found it interesting and exciting.
I found the book to be interesting, although it was long. This is perfect for someone with a passion for aviation, military, politics or history. The personal touches – the information about the families that’s not well known was interesting as well. Before the end of the book, I felt I almost knew Billy Mitchell. His passion was successfully portrayed and communicated through Spencer Lane’s writing.
I thought the narrator, Dave Wright, performed the book beautifully. His voice was smooth, gentle yet passionate. I could listen to Wright for hours!
The amount of time and energy spent in the research of this book and its many components must have been overwhelming but so worth it!
There were no issues with quality or audio production of this book by U.S. Press.
