The military believed they had more advanced planes than their enemies and that they would help them win the war. Towards the beginning of the book, all of the squadrons name their planes. Many of these names were crazy and all of them symbolized hope, despair or regret. “Phil would write that it was copilot George Moznette who suggested Super Man” (Hillenbrand 68). Louie and his squadron had been fighting the war for some time and their initial hope was fading, but they felt their plane was strong like its name and this belief helped renew their hope.
The first theme that is presented in A Little History of the World would be the inventions and the human potential for creativity that are prolonged throughought the book. Leonardo da Vinci, being one of the most pronoun inventors of all time is the best example of human potential for creativity and innovation. He was the man who had a mind of his own, he thought like nobody else possibly else could. Even though his inventions came to reality about 300 years later, he was still the root of all the knowledge. Lets take the helicopter for example, the helicopter was yet again first thought of and designed by Leonardo da Vinci.

By the age of six Armstrong was already intrigued by airplanes, and he went on to take his first ride in one 10 years later when he got his pilot license. He was very serious about being a pilot, as he built a wind tunnel (a tunnel through which air is forced at controlled speeds to study the effects of its flow) in his basement in order to test model planes that he had created out. He started with flying lessons at the age of fourteen. But young Armstrong wasn 't only fascinated by airplanes at this age, he was also interested in outer space, a curiosity fueled by his neighbor and friend who possessed a powerful telescope. Using this Armstrong was able to see the stars and the moons, and dream of one day going up into space, a dream that would later be achieved.
So skillful and daring is this pilot in averting a crash that, out of respect, the Germans stop firing and let him land safety.” (Marty Jezer, 28). Whilst Carson was still in elementary school, she wrote two more stories, both receiving awards in St. Nicholas Magazine. One of them was summarized by Marty Jezer “It described the joyful reaction of a group of French soldiers when they learned that the United States has joined the Allied effort in WWI.” (Marty Jezer, 29).

Edward Reed, the nephew of Bill Reed, wrote a biography for Reed saying, “An excellent student and outstanding athlete, Bill graduated high school in 1935 and with honors from Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa, in 1939. He earned varsity letters in football and baseball and was a very fine golfer as well” (Reed). Bill was a family man, loving no one more than his mother.
