Winged Warfare, the Illustrared Classic Autobiography of Canadian World War I Ace Billy Bishop by Bishop, Billy and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Sep 12,  · Winged Victory, Yeats, a fictionalized account of the author's service in the RFC, stands out head and shoulders over the rest. That being said, Bishop is a lively story teller and one may discern a great deal about what flying was like, camp, tactics and strategies/5(3). The narrative combination of action, pathos, humour and humility set against the huge casualties of the RAF in makes Winged Victory one of the classics of Great War literature.

His colorful--not to say flamboyant--personality, and the flair with which he records his combat experiences have made of Bishop a legend, and will make of Winged Warfare some excellent reading for old fans who ""remember when"" as well as for younger readers . Winged warfare is the first of an authentic and exciting series of true air-combat classics, bringing back the great days of man-to-man aerial battles as told by the famous aces themselves. Credited with seventy-two victories, Canadian Ace William Bishop tells his own story of what it was like. After a century the Great War has been examined from all perspectives, achieves have been opened and studied and conclusions drawn but first-person accounts still provide spirit and details of the war in a unique fashion. Such is the value of “Winged Warfare” by Canada’s great flying ace, Billy Bishop/5(2). About the Book. Canadian flying ace William “Billy” Bishop’s Winged Warfare is a vivid account of his role as a member of the Royal Flying Corp during the First World War. Covering Bishop’s military service from his time as an infantryman through his many aerial battles, Winged Warfare is the exciting tale of a budding Canadian hero pitted against equally formidable enemy aviators.
