Author information

Antoine De Saint Exupery, born in Lyon 29 June 1900, was a French writer and aviator. He is best remembered for his novella The Little Prince, and for his books about aviation adventures, including Night Flight (1931) and Wind, Sand and Stars (1939). In 1921 he began his military service and trained as a pilot. He became one of the pioneers of international postal flight. At the outbreak of the Second World War he joined the French Air Force flying reconnaissance missions until the armistice with Germany. Following a spell writing in the United States, he joined the Free French Forces. He went on a mission to collect information on German troop movements in the Rhone valley on 31 July 1944 and was never seen again. His plane disappeared. It was assumed that he was shot down over the Mediterranean. An unidentifiable body wearing French colours was found several days later and buried in Carqueiranne that September.
