One year before Lindbergh flew the Atlantic, Western began flying the U.S. mail from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City. Those were the wild and woolly days of aviation, when freewheeling pilots braved impossible odds on almost every run — flying the treacherous Rocky Mountain routes in wood-and-fabric biplanes, without benefit of instruments. They navigated by following the railroad tracks — and at first the only passengers they attracted were thrill seekers willing to endure the ride perched on top of a mail sack.
But Western advanced with the aviation industry, expanding rapidly in the thirties and shifting to passenger service as its prime source of revenue. The airline now flies approximately twenty-two thousand passengers a day to more than forty cities in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.

Day of Infamy: The Bombing of Pearl Harbor (affiliate link)
Lord’s classic, bestselling account of the bombing of Pearl Harbor
The Day of Infamy began as a quiet morning on the American naval base at Pearl Harbor. But as Japan’s deadly torpedoes suddenly rained down on the Pacific fleet, soldiers, generals, and civilians alike felt shock, then fear, then rage.

Drawn from hundreds of interviews, letters, and diaries, Walter Lord recounts the many tales of heroism and tragedy by those who experienced the attack firsthand. From the musicians of the USS Nevada who insisted on finishing “The Star Spangled Banner” before taking cover, to the men trapped in the capsized USS Oklahoma who methodically voted on the best means of escape, each story conveys the terror and confusion of the raid, as well as the fortitude of those who survived.
