Many of the flying aces of World War I are well known to the general public - von Richthofen, Ball and others. But "Mick" Mannock's name is not so famous. Shrouded by mystery and a lack of interest from the authorities, Mannock's achievements and sacrifices have been discarded by the legends of his contemporaries. This book tells the full story of this flier. Although Mannock's claim to national fame is based on his wartime achievements, this book is not only a story of war it is rather an examination of a great human being, his struggles to escape the chains of Victorian poverty as well as his part in the bloody carnage of war.
