A leading First World War ace, Billy Bishop's preference for 'lone wolf' attacks was daring and dangerous but also left him open to suspicion over the accuracy of his victory claims. With over 70 illustrations and archive photographs, this forensic examination of his flying career cross-references his combat reports with other accounts by both friend and foe and his own private correspondence (which relate some death-defying experiences) to build up a complete picture of the Canadian-born pilot's aerial exploits.
