Title: Mannock. The Life and Death of Major Edward ...

Publisher: (2008) Grub Street,, London:

Publication Date: 2008

Binding: red boards in dust jacket.

Edition: First Edition..

Description:

octavo, 192 pp. Illustrated. Arguably the highest scoring R.A.F. fighter pilot of the First World War, Edward ‘Mick’ Mannock’s life, and most particularly his death, are still shrouded in mystery. Did he achieve as many victories as are sometimes ascribed to him? How did he die? Where did he die, and more pertinently, where do his remains now lie? Respected investigative historians Norman Franks and Andy Saunders have assessed all the evidence and cut through the speculation to build up a complete picture of the man and his achievements as a fighter pilot. Having unearthed much new and enlightening information, they present herein, perhaps the first truly balanced overview of his life. Vitally, they now also reveal exactly where Mannock VC fell in battle ninety years ago, and have now begun a quest to persuade the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to accept their findings, published here for the first time, along with numerous original photographs. Very fine. Bookseller Inventory # 19344
