"Based on extensive interviews which the author had with Douglas Bader during the last thirteen years of his life, it tells the full story from his childhood to his work with the disabled in later life. After a flying accident in which he lost his legs, Douglas Bader was invalided out of the RAF. At the outbreak of war in 1939 he was recalled to the RAF and returned to flying. He fought in the Battle of Britain and later in nearly one hundred offensive fighter patrols. Follow-ing a mid-air collision he was captured and became a prisoner-of-war and was imprisoned in Colditz. The story of his war-time activities, both in the air and as a POW , is told in some detail and makes fascinating reading. These activities helped him to achieve celebrity status and in later life much of his time was given to promoting causes for the disabled." Very small faint soiling mark on bottom of text block. Dust jacket is price clipped, has very light rubbing - mainly on rear panel, tiny dent on front panel, minor edge wrinkling.
