The book is a good record of Bennett's many achievements but reveals little of the obviously complex character of Bennett the man; I suspect that Bennett himself might have been a reluctant biographical subject. However, the major shortcomings in this book lie not with the author but his publishers who have not served him well.
There are more than a few irritating instances of uncorrected grammatical horrors, spelling mistakes and a general lack of literary tidiness. At one point, reference is made to an attack on the Renault works at "Bioncore". This had me confused until I assumed that Bramson had dictated the text and Bioncore was an anglicised "Billancourt" but the editorial staff had failed to spot this.
As far as I am aware, this is the only available biography of AVM the late Donald Bennett so is a "must have" for those with a serious interest in the the man and the background to precision bombing.
