Although Douglas Bader is best known for his wartime exploits, his contribution to life was far greater than that: he inspired people all over the world. The photographs in this book, many of which are unpublished and in colour, clearly show the life of a man who despite having no legs lived life to the full and at the double.
A fascinating book for anyone interested in the legend that was Sir Douglas Bader complete with a vintage fan letter bearing a neat early Bader signature.
