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. 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.

DAN McCAFFERY is one of Canada's most successful military aviation history writers. He was born in Sarnia, Ontario, where he graduated from the Journalism Program at Lambton College of Applied Arts and Technology. He previously worked for the Sarnia Gazette and now works at the Sarnia Observer where he is the assignment editor. He has won three Canadian News Awards, two Ontario News Awards, and a Western Ontario News Award. He lives in Sarnia.
