"Nostalgia" according to D Swaney. From toddler-hood, my father was enthralled with everything that involved flying and aviation, and despite the depression and financial difficulties of the day, my grandfather granted his son one of the greatest gifts of his life by taking him to the Cleveland. Aviation history comes alive! Jane Young Thanks to Thomas Matowitz, an intriguing slice of aviation history is doumented in this fascinating book. It is an important contribution to the history of aviation, capturing the flavor of the Air Races in rare photos. Though I have seen many rare aviation ph. John Edward Trtek said It is ok, but not what I was looking for.. I am doing research on "between Wars" aviation. In general, this book is ok, but doesn't give me any new information that I don't already have. If you have a general interest in U.S. aviation history, then this book is ok, but not if you are a serious historia

The National Air Races captivated the public during the grim years of the Great Depression and provided a showcase for many aviation innovations including retractable landing gear, low-wing monoplanes, aircooled engines, and careful streamlining. Cleveland’s newly constructed municipal airport, the world’s largest airport facility at the time, along with its permanent 50,000-seat bleachers, won the city hosting rights to the event. This book should reinforce the memories of those who saw the races firsthand and pique the interest of those who have always wished they had.. The National Air Races, held in Cleveland between 1929 and 1949, collectively represent one of the most significant aviation events of the 20th century. A deadly crash ended the National Air Races more than 50 years ago, but the races made an unforgettable impression. Enthusiasm for aviation exploded after Charles Lindbergh’s solo flight across the Atlantic in May 1927
