He was America’s most dashing athlete, the pride of Princeton. Hobey Baker, the aristocratic Ivy League sports hero and, later, a glamorous World War I fighter pilot. From the outside, U.S. Army Captain Hobey Baker had it all: good looks, a glamorous fiancĂ©, war medals for bravery, and a sports resume second to none. And then it all came crashing down, barely a month following the Armistice.
Over the years, questions emerged: Why did Baker take that ill-fated flight in the first place? What prompted his lover to abandon him? Why did he fight his orders to return home from war? HOBEY BAKER: UPON FURTHER REVIEW distills a century’s worth of clues to solve the mystery of a death that has confounded us all.
