Comprehensive biography of the woefully under-rated Bruce Bairnsfather who has almost been forgotten these days. The Holts seem to have interviewed pretty much everyone they could who knew Bairnsfather and have written a very readable account of the ups and downs of his life. Plenty of illustrations make it the complete package.
bought as a gift for a freind who collects comic postacrds created by Bairnsfather of life in the forces during the first world war. The book also covers the inter war years plus his service in the US Air Force during World War 2.
Couldn't think what to give to a friend who was retiring after 36 years in the British Army. This book was perfect. I remember the image from my young days but didnt know about the book. It was received with great pleasure and interest.
