$40.00

Anne Morrow Lindbergh was a celebrated author and aviator who became one of the most famous people in the world during the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. She was the first American woman to get a glider pilot’s license. Alongside her husband, she spent much of the early 1930s tracking potential routes for the burgeoning commercial airline industry. Her writing–both nonfiction and poetry–was some of the most popular of the era. Sadly, though, her most public event was the kidnapping and death of her infant son in 1932. The case was called the Crime of the Century and the swarming press afterward drove the Lindberghs to retreat to England. Several years later, their isolationist views during WWII caused much public criticism as well, but Anne’s literary publications and eventual support of US military action revitalized their reputations. During that turbulent period, Anne was producing a prolific amount of nonfiction in the form of journals and letters. Those pages are compiled in this volume, War Within and Without: Diaries and Letters of Anne Morrow Lindbergh 1939-1944. It reveals a pivotal period in her life. It also showcases some of her best prose.
