"This is a solid, no-nonsense book, an important one that lays the Bishop controversy to rest... a tour de force of research..." - Vancouver Sun"A meticulously researched book." - Ian Gillespie, London Free Press Billy Bishop was fiercely ambitious, driven by an undisguised hatred of his enemies. He played hard and fought even harder. A highly skilled pilot and a crack shot, "top gun" of the Allied air forces, by 1918 Bishop was the most highly decorated war hero in Canadian history. He also remains the most controversial. Some of Bishop's fellow pilots were repelled by his grandstanding and suspected he was deliberately inflating his number of "kills." Since then, the claim has been repeated by many others. This issue is at the heart of Billy Bishop: Canadian Hero. In this updated second edition, author Dan McCaffery reviews the evidence in support of his account of what Bishop really did in the skies over France, setting the record straight about one of this country's most famous and controversial figures. About the AuthorDan McCaffery is one of Canada's most successful military aviation history writers. He is the author of Hell Island: Canadian Pilots and the 1942 Air Battle for Malta, Air Aces, and Battlefields in the Air, amongst others.
