The Millionaires' Unit: The Aristocratic Flyboys Who Fought the Great War and Invented American Airpower

The Millionaires' Unit" is the story of a gilded generation of young men from the zenith of privilege: a Rockefeller, the son of the head of the Union Pacific Railroad, several who counted friends and relatives among presidents and statesmen of the day. They had it all and, remarkably by modern standards, they were prepared to risk it all to fight a distant war in France. Driven by the belief that their membership in the American elite required certain sacrifice, schooled in heroism and the nature of leadership, they determined to be first into the conflict, leading the way ahead of America's declaration that it would join the war. At the heart of the group was the Yale flying club, six of whom are the heroes of this book. They would share rivalries over girlfriends, jealousies over membership in Skull and Bones, and fierce ambition to be the most daring young man over the battlefields of France, where the casualties among flyers were chillingly high. One of the six would go on to become the principal architect of the American Air Force's first strategic bomber force. Others would bring home decorations and tales of high life experiences in Paris. Some would not return, having made the greatest sacrifice of all in perhaps the last noble war. For readers of "Flyboys," "The Greatest Generation," or "Flags Of Our Fathers," this patriotic, romantic, absorbing book is narrative military history of the best kind.

The filmmakers at the History Channel investigate what many historians claim to be among the most unjust wars ever waged in this look at the Mexican-American War hosted by boxing legend Oscar de la Hoya. Launched in April of 1846, "Mr. Polk's War" was an attempt by America to expand its border to the Pacific Ocean. In doing so, it took almost half of Mexico's territory. In this film, viewers are offered the chance to view this conflict from both sides of the battlefield. Mexican and American historians come together to ask why war was initiated, examine how it was fought, and reveal why it ended in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. Archival materials, vivid reenactments, and newly captured location footage help to paint a vivid picture of the controversial war that involved such noted historical figures as Zachary Taylor (who would later become president) , Ulysses S. Grant, and Robert E. Lee. Discover why the Mexican-American War was one of the most crucial conflicts in North American history, and how it forever changed the relationship between the two neighboring nations.
