On February 17, 1933, Newsweek published its first issue. Thomas J.C. Martyn had envisioned a national weekly news magazine for a decade and had worked to accomplish that goal with the tireless zeal and dedication of a true entrepreneur. What kind of man has the vision, creativity and dedication to accomplish such a big dream? Aviation Adventures contains answers to that question. 19 years earlier, when World War One broke out, Martyn was a bright eyed 18 year old, full of romantic and patriotic ideas. He joined the British Royal Flying Corps, an elite fighting organization. The air battles he participated in, the respect he earned from his commanding officers and fellow pilots and his behind-the-scenes contributions reveal the character of the man who would go on to found Newsweek. Aviation Adventures is Martyn's account of how he was able to wrangle a much coveted acceptance into the Flying Corps and details the bombing raids and other contributions he made to the war effort.
