Book Overview

Discover the dark side of Charles Lindbergh–one of America’s most celebrated heroes and complicated men–in this riveting biography from the acclaimed author of The Family Romanov .

First human to cross the Atlantic via airplane; one of the first American media sensations; Nazi sympathizer and anti-Semite; loner whose baby was kidnapped and murdered; champion of Eugenics, the science of improving a human population by controlled breeding; tireless environmentalist. Charles Lindbergh was all of the above and more.

Here is a rich, multi-faceted, utterly spellbinding biography about an American hero who was also a deeply flawed man. In this time where values Lindbergh held, like white Nationalism and America First, are once again on the rise, The Rise and Fall of Charles Lindbergh is essential reading for teens and history fanatics alike.

Book Review

An intriguing biography of an historical legend. This complete portrait of Lindbergh includes his loner-childhood with a helicopter mother, his devotion to pushing the boundaries of aviation that creates a burden of obsessive celebrity status that has his family running and the loss of his first child to kidnapping. 

Fleming’s book is fair, offering the good Lindbergh offered, as well as the reality of the dark side of his character. He’s neither loved or hated in her writing. He’s presented as he was, and the story is utterly compelling. 

Reading about his life is both educational, enthralling and enraging. You’ll run the full spectrum of emotions as we look back into our history and see the privilege and prejudices of the time.

The Rise and Fall of Charles Lindbergh offers a fair and full look, interesting photos included, at a without offering sympathy or excuses. This is an excellent and honest read!
