About the Book

A wonderful Biography of Douglas Bader, RAF pilot and ace of the Battle of Britain. He was extraordinary because both legs had to be amputated after a crash before the start of WWII and his tremendous wartime exploits and lifetime of accomplishments were with 2 artificial legs. I first read this book from my Jr high library and it has been a lifetime favorite I have re-read several times.
