Review

Norman Franks and Andy Saunders have produced what is probably the most complete and well-balanced study to date ... A fascinating read! --Britain at War magazine --Magazine

The authors provide a detailed analysis of Mannock's combat record, including a victory list with 66 entries.

Moreover, the text addresses lingering aspects of Mannock's legend: his birthplace; his alleged blindness in one eye; his bloodthirsty attitude toward "the Hun"; his superb reputation as a flight leader. In fact, the authors seem to describe every pilot affiliated with him in Numbers 40, 74, and 85 Squadrons.

Illustrated with nearly 70 photos and maps, Franks and Saunders' study is bound to stand as the definitive reference for years to come. --Magazine

The meticulous research and its presentation in a logical and easily followed text, backed up with numberous photographs, cannot fail to impress ... this is a book that can be unhesitatingly recommended, bringing, as it does, something new to a well covered subject --

The authors post a number of questions in this very handsome book ... the story is told with great skill and thoroughness, and makes a most exciting read - the ultimate Mannock --Stand To!

Physically, the book is flawless. It is weighty enough to convince the buyer that he has purchased something substantial something of worth yet small enough to fit in a briefcase and sufficiently handy to read on a subway. The illustrations are reproduced to a high standard and are properly sized for study without distracting from the text, which is large enough for easy reading and cast in an eye-friendly font. The price is reasonable for the product received. Everything about Mannock: The Life and Death of Major Edward Mannock, VC, DSO, MC, RAF reeks of excellence. You will enjoy this work immensely. --Indy Squadron Dispatch
