    Patrick Bishop has emerged in the last decade as one of Britain’s best-regarded military historians with his books Fighter Boys and Bomber Boys, which cast a new light on the men who flew in the Battle of Britain and the Strategic Air Campaign. Patrick Bishop’s latest book, ‘Wings’, is a comprehensive overview of the last one. But this Beaufighter Boys book is very distant and gives only superficial accounts of combat, at best. For instance, it covers one navigator who fought in four combat theaters but rarely covers any encounter with passion; it's little more than a listing of the squadrons he served with and medals he earned.
