Antoine Jean-Baptiste Marie Roger de Saint-Exupéry (29 June 1900 – 31 July 1944) used to be a successful commercial pilot, amongst the pioneers of postal service aircraft. When World War II came, he joined the French Air Force as a reconnaissance pilot. When the armistice with Germany was signed, he escaped to the United States, took a break from aviation to write a little bit, then joined Free French Forces. In 1944, he went missing during a recon flight, and the wreck of his airplane would only be found in 2003.Although he was a talented, devoted and famous aviator, some people might recognize him a bit better from some the books he wrote, being one of the most important French writers of world literature and one of the most famous writers of the 20th century.
