Billy Bishop: Top Canadian Flying Ace
Written by Don McCaffery.
Published by James Lorimer & Company Ltd., 2009.
|Billy Bishop was the top Canadian flying ace in the First World
War, credited officially with a record-breaking 75 victories. He was a highly
skilled pilot and an accurate shot. Bishop went from being the most decorated
war hero in Canadian history to a crusader for peace, writing the book
Winged Peace, which supported international control of global air power.
While some historians feel that authorities upgraded Bishop's claims to improve morale, author Dan McCaffery presents the true life and accomplishments of Bishop through information he gathered from interviews and archival sources.
