The inspirational life-story of Douglas Bader, double amputee and Second World War fighter ace – who repeatedly refused to give up in the face of overwhelming odds. This edition features an afterword by Douglas Bader and contemporary photographs. Aged 21, Bader was a rising star in the RAF: an exceptional pilot with a natural flair for stunt flying and an outstanding sportsman, tipped to play rugby for England. Then disaster struck. Carrying out a banned ‘slow roll’ at low altitude, Bader crashed so badly that he had to have both legs amputated.
