William Avery Bishop is recognized as the British EmpireA•s highest-scoring WWI ace, credited with 72 combat victories, third-ranking behind von Richthofen and RenA½ Fonck. He scored many of his successes on his own, prevailing only by dint of personal courage, daring and superior marksmanship. This remarkable manA•s story has been detailed in many books and articles, but renowned author Peter Kilduff is adamant that so far the full truth has not been told. Famed for his evenhanded, thorough, exhaustive and forensic research, Kilduff sets out to bring new light to missions and kills so far steeped in controversy. As so many of BishopA•s victories were achieved during solo combat, all will be examined and scrutinized, drawing on German, British and Canadian archival sources, BishopA•s private correspondence, and accounts by friends and foes.
