Edition: 1st US Edition

Seller ID: 26868

Condition: Very Good in Very Good- dust jacket


Throughout his life Billy Bishop was something of an eccentric--a man of ebullient high spirits and feverish enthusiasms. As a boy in Owen Sound, Ontario, he was no prodigy for learning. His three years at the Royal Military College were disastrous--an epic of rules broken and discipline scorned. He often admitted that his special method of landing wrecked more planes than he shot down.

Condition: Very Good in Very Good dust jacket


Life in a German prison-of-war camp in 1943 was not one of unparalleled comfort and ease. If, therefore, a sinister German officer came round, picked you out from your fellow men, and suggested that you went back to England and spied for them, , you thought twice about it. And the second thought was that once you got there you could give yourself up to the nearest familiar old British copper, couldn't you? What a perfect way to get back to the family. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 287 pages; 25431 View more info
