Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, born June 29, 1900 in Lyon and missing in flight on July 31, 1944 at sea, off the coast of Marseille, died for France, he was a French writer, poet, pilot and reporter.
Born in a family of French nobility, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry spent a happy childhood marked by the early death of his father, followed by the death of a brother. Being a dreamer student, however he obtained his high school diploma in 1917. After his failure in the competition for the Naval Academy, he turned to art and architecture. He became pilot during his military service in 1922, and joined the Latécoère (future Aéropostale) company in 1926. He carried mail from Toulouse to Senegal and moved to South America in 1929. At the same time he became a writer. He publishes his first novels, inspired by his experiences as a pilot: Courrier sud in 1929 and particularly Vol de nuit in 1931, which was a great success.
After 1932 Saint-Exupéry devotes himself to journalism and air raids. He made great reports in Viet Nam in 1934, in Moscow in 1935, in Spain in 1936, that fed his reflections on humanistic values. Terre des hommes, published in 1939, received the Grand Prize of the Académie Française.
In 1939, he served in the air force and was assigned to a reconnaissance squadron. At the armistice, he left France for New York City with the goal of bringing Americans into the war and became one of the voices of the Resistance. Dreaming of action, he finally joined in spring 1944, in Sardinia and then in Corsica, a unit responsible for the photographic documentation of the invasion of the Provence. He was lost at sea with his plane a Lockheed P-38 Lightning during his mission on July 31, 1944. His plane was found off the coast of Marseilles and formally identified on September 3, 2003.
Le Petit Prince, written in New York during the war, was published with his own watercolours in 1943 in New York and in 1946 by Gallimard in France. This tale full of charm and humanity became a huge worldwide success.
