In 1933, Chicago staged what was up to that time the most forward-looking international exhibition in history. The 1933 Century of Progress World’s Fair looked to the future as one full of glowing promise and no technology loomed larger at the Fair than aviation. In Broken Icarus, author David Hanna tracks the inspiring trajectory of aviation leading up to and through the World’s Fair of 1933, as well as the field of flight’s more sinister ties to fascism domestic and abroad to present a unique history that is both riveting and revelatory.
