Product description

ANTOINE DE SAINT-EXUPÉRY (1900-1944). Intensément impliqué dans les premières années de l´aviation commerciale, ses romans sont intimement liés à ses expériences en tant que pilote. Employé par la compagnie Latécoère, il s´en chargera du courrier de Toulouse au Sénégal, parcours qui se prolongera jusqu´en Amérique du Sud en 1929. À partir de 1932, il se consacrera à l´écriture et au journalisme, ce qui l´amènera au Vietnam, à Moscou et à l´Espagne de la guerre civile. Pendant la deuxième Guerre Mondiale, il deviendra l´une des voix de la Résistance et à New-York il essaiera de faire entrer les américains dans le conflit. Au printemps 44, il rejoindra une patrouille de reconnaissance basé en Sardaigne, puis en Corse, et le 31 juillet de cette année son avion disparaîtra en mer et ne sera retrouvé qu´en 2000. « Terre des hommes » (1939). Il s´agit d´une œuvre autobiographique dans laquelle Saint-Exupéry évoque un certain nombre d´incidences qui remontent à l´époque où el travaillait comme pilote de l´Aéropostale, notamment l´accident survenu en 1935 dans le désert de la Libye, au cours duquel il avait frôlé la mort avec son navigateur André Prévost.


ANTOINE OF SAINT-EXUPÉRY (1900-1944). Intensely involved in the early years of commercial aviation, his novels are intimately linked to his experiences as a pilot. Employed by the company Latécoère, he will take care of mail from Toulouse to Senegal, a journey that will extend to South America in 1929. From 1932, he will devote himself to writing and journalism, which will bring Vietnam, Moscow and Spain from civil war. During the Second World War, he will become one of the voices of the Resistance and in New York he will try to bring the Americans into the conflict. In spring 44, he will join a reconnaissance patrol based in Sardinia and Corsica, and on 31 July this year his plane will disappear at sea and will be found in 2000. "Terre des hommes" (1939). It is an autobiographical work in which Saint-Exupéry evokes a number of incidents that date back to the time when he was working as a pilot of the Aeropostale, including the accident that occurred in 1935 in the desert of Libya , during which he was close to death with his navigator André Prévost.
