Reviews

`Sympathetic, magnificent ... This exemplary biography is a timely corrective when the fashion is for politicians to run away after they suffer a setback' Times

`Neave was a brave, modest and decent man. Bishop shows him also to be complex, sometimes troubled, and more interesting than many who did not know him understood. He deserves a first-rate biography, and Bishop has written it' Daily Telegraph

`It succeeds triumphantly. Masterly on military matters, sympathetic, psychologically acute and alert to irony' Sunday Telegraph

`Bishop writes with admirable brevity and insight' Sunday Times

Praise for Patrick Bishop:

`This is a terrifically readable, authoritative book that told me many fascinating things I did not know' Max Hastings, Sunday Times

`As a former war correspondent with more than 30 years' experience, Bishop brings journalistic strengths to his second career as a popular historian: an easily readable and exciting writing style, a knowledge of what fighting means to those at the sharp end, a nose for the nub of the story, and an admirable compassion for the victims of war on all sides...a book that at once educates, explains, and excites' BBC History magazine, Book of the Month

`Monumental ... after Bishop's pilot's eye views of the war in Fighter Boys and Bomber Boys, Air Force Blue counts as a publishing event. It won't disappoint" Times

`Compelling ... Mr Bishop has an enormous tale to tell as he leads up to 1939 and six years of formative war...what Mr. Bishop does so well is to show how the RAF came to be such a distinctive and effective force' Country Life

`Full of excellent and vivid stories, this terrifically readable and authoritative book tells the dramatic story of the RAF during the Second World War' Sunday Times

`This meticulously compiled survey sets out to combine encomium with a series of unblinkered evaluations' TLS
