Adventure Ahead

1940s adventure stories
from archive.org

Adventure Ahead! was a summer feature for 1944. Comprised of fourteen stirring adventure novels and stories from among America's greatest fiction writers.

The better encodes of this remarkable Summer series are wonderful reminders of the type of inspirational fare of the 1940s during a world at War. Not preachy, not particularly jingoistic, but clearly selected and adapted to act as both a comfort and inspiration to the thousands of young people anxiously awaiting resolution of the War and the return of their brothers, fathers and uncles. In this respect alone, this gem of a short series is a definite keeper from The Golden Age of Radio.
