Synopsis: 'At last, the definitive account of Bader's career by his most knowledgeable biographer' PROFESSOR PAUL MACKENZIE, author of Bader. Over 90 historic photographs, many have never been reproduced before. The story of Douglas Bader, the RAF fighter pilot who shot down twenty enemy fighters during the Second World War despite having lost both his legs, defies fiction. A fighter ace and highly decorated war hero, he became a household name in the 1950s thanks to the bestselling book and blockbuster film Reach for the Sky which charted his wartime exploits. Indeed, his name remains the one the general public associate most with the Battle of Britain. That he overcame his disability and flew into battle - leading squadrons of Spitfires and Hurricanes in the epic air battle of summer 1940 - is truly remarkable. Bader's first aerial victory - a Messerschmitt 109 - was recorded over Dunkirk on 1 June 1940. During the subsequent Battle of Britain this remarkable airman claimed the destruction of seven more enemy aircraft: Me 110s, Do 17s, Ju 88s and another Me 109 falling to his guns. The legless airman was, of course, rich material for the propagandists, who lost no time in manipulating his exploits to increase Britain's morale. Newspaper reports and radio broadcasts of his aerial victories abounded. Dilip Sarkar has spent the last twenty years researching the life and times of this popular hero and this definitive biography has been written in close co-operation with his fellow wartime pilots.
About the Author: Dilip Sarkar has published over thirty books on the Battle of Britain. These include the biography of the RAF's top scoring ace of the Second World War, Johnnie Johnson, and the Battle of Britain memoir of Brian Lane (as editor). A retired policeman, in 2003 Dilip was made an MBE for services to aviation history, and elected to the Fellowship of the Royal Historical Society in 2006. He lives in Worcester.
