Consolidating the success of the first volume, the paperback of which is still in print Daily Telegraph obituary writer Jay Iliff has compiled and edited one hundred additional mini-biographies of outstanding aviators of the last century. Numerous fascinating characters abound, men like John "Cat's Eyes" Cunningham, night fighter ace and test pilot; Ian Harvey, the BEA pilot who safely landed his airliner after a bomb had exploded onboard; Stanislaw Skalski, Polish Battle of Britain ace; Pierre Clostermann, French fighter ace; the marvelous "Bunny" Currant; Ray Hanna, leader of the Red Arrows hired by Steven Spielberg to fly in Saving Private Ryan; and Bob Morgan, the American pilot of the Memphis Belle. And steadfast women like Iris "Fluff" Bower, an RAF nurse who tended wounded soldiers on Normandy beaches; and Felicity Peake, appointed director of the WAAF in 1946 aged just 32.
