Winged Brothers recounts the service exploits of two brothers, Ernest and Macon
Snowden, through more than forty years of naval aviation history in both
peace and war. They were deeply committed to each other and to advancing
their chosen profession, but due to the vast difference in their ages and
the fourteen years between their respective graduations from the U.S. Naval
Academy, they experienced carrier aviation from very different perspectives.
Through personal letters, official reports, first-hand accounts, and first-person
interviews, their symbiotic relationship is revealed to the reader.
