Pan Am at War coverPan Am at War: How the Airline Secretly Helped America Fight World War II by Mark Cotta Vaz and John H. Hill (2019) (**)


"In the 1930s and 1940s, Pan American Airways cast air lines across the world’s great oceans, pioneering intercontinental air of the great technological accomplishments of the twentieth century. At the same time...Pan Am served as a spearpoint of U.S. strategic engagement, projecting American power to every corner of the globe. In their briskly-written and ever-amazing Pan Am at War, authors Mark Cotta Vaz and John H. Hill tell what must surely be the greatest corporate story in American history—how Pan Am’s daring and visionary executives, aviators, and innovators helped win the Second World War."
