Author Dan McCaffery presents the life and accomplishments of Bishop through information he gathered from interviews and archival sources.This new illustrated edition of Dan McCaffery's book contains more than 50 photos of Bishop and other First World War fliers including German and British air aces, plus artefacts from the collection now on display at Billy Bishop airport, Toronto.
