Signed by author on half title page ; A bright solid, book DJ in Mylar ; 227 pages; New edition of Billy Bishop: Canadian Hero, military aviation expert Dan McCaffery sets the record straight about one of this country's most famous and controversial figures. Fiercely ambitious and driven by an undisguised hatred of his enemies, Bishop played hard and fought even harder. A skilled pilot and a crack shot, he quickly established himself as the "top gun" of the Allied air forces and by 1918 had secured his position as the most decorated war hero in Canadian history. Yet questions remain. Some of Bishop's fellow pilots were put off by his grandstanding and also suspected he was deliberately inflating his number of "kills." Since then, the same claim has been made by many others. That issue is at the heart of this book.
