Thaddeus Lowe: A flamboyant showman, dedicated scientist, and starry-eyed dreamer who, soon after the outbreak of the Civil War, went to the federal government with a view to convincing the authorities in the use of balloons for observation purposes. Hovering over the battlefield, observing the action from his balloon, Lowe is considered by many to be the founder of the U.S. Air Force. This is the story of Lowe's struggle, trials and tribulations, and sheer perseverance in promoting the interest of science. A must-have addition to any Aeronautical library. Hardback, 352 pages.
