William Avery Bishop - best known as Billy - has been hailed as the British Empire's highest-scoring World War I fighter ace. Officially credited with victory in seventy-two air battles, the Canadian-born pilot was honoured in a special ceremony by King George V, who presented Bishop with the Victoria Cross, Distinguished Service Order and Military Cross at the same time. Bishop also became an early recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross. Making 'lone wolf' attacks on German aircraft, the daring young flyer pursued targets over enemy lines without having to be responsible for less experienced men in a patrol. Bishop's approach to aerial combat was extremely dangerous, however, making him more vulnerable to his adversaries. And, with sparse independent corroboration of his air fighting claims, Bishop's tactic left him open to suspicions about the veracity of his combat reports. A key point of this book is Peter Kilduff's careful review of the ace's existing combat reports and private correspondence, as well as accounts by friends and foes. Another side of Billy Bishop is revealed in many letters to his fiancee (later wife) relating death-defying experiences while sharing tender inner thoughts. Drawing on some five decades of extensive, even-handed and thorough research into World War I aviation history, Kilduff examines a wealth of German sources for this in-depth study of the ace's aerial exploits. Drawing on all his experience, the author sheds new light on Bishop's air missions and combats, which so far are steeped in controversy. Such methodology provides as complete an account as possible. Billy Bishop VC - Lone Wolf Hunter also serves as a valuable reference work, containing over seventy illustrations relating to Bishop and his adversaries, many previously unpublished.

This is the follow up to the award-winning bestselling Kids Kitchen (also published by Grub Street with UK sales of over 70,000 copies) with 100 new recipes for delicious savoury dishes and delightful sweet treats, specially developed and written for children. All the unique elements that made Kids Kitchen such a hit are here in this new collection of recipes - no sharp knives are used, no hob-top cooking, all the recipes have been tested by children themselves and every recipe is photographed. Most recipes use measuring jugs and measuring spoons for ingredients so they are simple to prepare and where cooking is involved, they use ovens and microwaves so there are no naked flames to cook over. Nor does the book ignore the growing number of children with gluten intolerances and coeliac disease - many of the recipes are completely gluten-free. There are recipes that will easily form part of a family meal such as Cashew Couscous, Up-Side Down Baked Potatoes, Coconut-Curry Kookoo Chicken and Every-Flavour Pork Chops. Healthy snacks like Fin-Tastic Fish Fillets, Really Big Chicken Meatballs and Parmesan Puffs. And because children just LOVE to bake there are over 50 recipes so they can dazzle everyone just as if they were a pastry chef with Fresh Lemon Cupcakes, Rainy Day Banana Bread, Pink Cherry Cake, Tomato Salsa Cornbread and Peanut Butter Beezies.
