    This book was rather to technical and tactical for me I was hoping for something biographical in terms of character and personality beyond the flying ace.In the extensive descriptions of air battles I found it quite hard to visualise what was going on and getting a bit frustrated with it this is probably my own fault and if I had stuck with it, I am sure I would have learned but eventually I started to skip fairly large chunks of the book at which point it seems better to give it up and find another book that gives me what I am looking for.

    A brilliant biography about an exceptional human being Exciting close up and personal views of the fighter plane action in great detail plus the inevitable politics of war Bader is a real boys own hero, you could not really make him up as a fictional character, he would not have been credible, but it is that in essence that makes him an outstanding figure of the air war The man with no legs that led the Battle of Britain and determines air fighter tactics for the RAF If there is a criticism to be made, the book is a little too well researched and comprehensive in its detail to be the great story it could be Nonetheless I am proud to have read of this man and his achievements and his mistakes.

    I enjoyed most of the book Some parts were even exciting, as you d expect of stories of air battles etc However, I found the frequent use of acronyms and other labels made many paragraphs unintelligble, or at least difficult to read In a sense, it made for speed reading because I skipped an awful lot of unneeded information.Still, the author does reveal much of Bader s personality and his strengths weaknesses, as well as his successes and those of his men.

    Lots of good information, but not well written overall I felt like I was reading an official after action report for long segments at a time.
