Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 234 x 153 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.For over fifty years James Biggles Worth, D.S.O., D.F.C., M.C., has flown the skies. The mythical ace to end all flying aces, the fearless pilot of everything from Sop with Camels to the earliest jets, he emerged with glory from devilish scrapes all over the world. Yet until now Biggles has often been seen as a storybook caricature. A dashed fine chap, certainly, but not the extraordinary man he really was. Here, for the first time, is an insight into the real man who made these adventures possible. In Biggles, his fictional biography, first published in 1978, John Pearson has unravelled the missing strands in Biggles life; delving vigorously into subjects that were once taboo. Why did Biggles never marry? What was the truth about his tragic first love? And what were Biggles real regrets and frustrations as he tried to come to terms with a rapidly developing world in peacetime? The truth - so long hidden behind a stiff upper lip and an equally stiff pink gin in the Officers Mess - is at last revealed. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781448208005
