About this title

Synopsis:

First published in 1944, Winged Peace is the story of aviation, and its future as seen through the eyes of Canada's leading fighter pilot ace in World War I. From Kitty Hawk to B-29 Superfortresses, Bishop shows us how the world had changed geographically, socially, economically, and politically. Bishop wrote Winged Peace during the darkest years of World War II, when Germany had perfected flight for conquest. He examines air power as an instrument for death, as well as the advances in peace and betterment for all that flight is capable of making. There is no greater testament to the imagination and resourcefulness of people than the incredible development and growth of aviation technology in this century. Bishop recognizes this and also the need for international control of air power: 'holding under closest control the means to destruction inherent in aviation and developing our aviation for the good of all mean and the peace of world.'

Store Description

Greetings from Nexus Books. We are professional book-dealers with many years' experience in the trade. We specialise in children's books, philosophy and theological literature, mystery and adventure fiction, and interesting or scarce books in many other subjects. Specifically, we deal in antiquarian non-fiction, especially in areas such as history, voyages and exploration, military books and theology. We maintain high quality, properly catalogued listings, with an emphasis on offering scarce material in collectable condition. A note about condition: our highest grade for a secondhand/used book is Fine. Our copies in Fine condition can in many cases be catalogued as Very Fine or "As New." We fully describe all significant flaws in a book or dust-jacket, even though it makes a collectable copy of a scarce book seem not as nice as it is; but we get very few returns and believe our customers appreciate our strict grading policy. We are always buying books of the sort catalogued here. We purchase collections of old books, particularly in the fields in which we specialise e.g. philosophy, quality theology, military books, western Canadiana, children's classics, detective mysteries, ghost stories and other genre fiction. If you have books of interest, from a few items to an entire library, please do not hesitate to contact us.
