Forgotten Aviator Hubert Latham: A High-Flying Gentlemen: A Flying Gentlemen - Paperback

2007, ISBN: 0752443186

[SR: 1366851], Paperback, [EAN: 9780752443188], The History Press, The History Press, Book, [PU: The History Press], 2007-09-01, The History Press, Published in 2007 in paperback by Tempus Publishing, 256pp, ISBN 978-0-7524-4318-8, this book by Barbara Walsh is about 'Forgotten Aviator Hubert Latham: A High Flying Gentleman', a popular member of early 20th century high society. Educated at Oxford and enthusiastically supported by his English fans, he received international public acclaim and adulation as one of the brightest stars of aviation. A celebrity, he mingled as easily with sporting personalities as with notorious French avant-garde artists. He made a record-breaking balloon flight across the Channel in 1905 and led treks in the Sudan, Abyssinia and Indochina in 1906-08, but if Latham is remembered today, it is for having been Louis Blériot's unsuccessful rival for the honour of making the first powered-aeroplane flight across the English Channel in the summer of 1909. In this fascinating biography, Barbara Walsh paints a lively and entertaining picture of Latham's impact on the volatile decade leading up to the 1st World War, while at the same time weaving more thoughtful historical analysis into the narrative. The privilege of unlimited access to a collection of family papers and memorabilia has allowed the author to present a new account of the controversies surrounding Latham's aviation career and the mysterious circumstances surrounding his untimely death at the age of twenty-nine, while on an expedition to the Congo. Contents: 1. A Tale of Two Dynasties: Expectations of Excellence; 2. A Sporting Young Tiger; 3. Into Africa: Land of the Queen of Sheba, 1906-07. 4.
