Because a single score could have been a fluke, whereas achieving more, points towards the potential skill and virtuosity of a fighter pilot, offering the promise of a higher total if the opportunity arose - and this is the nub of the matter. A fair majority of these men would have shot down many more enemy aircraft if the theatre of operations and timing had been right.Nevertheless there are numerous illustrious and familiar names within these pages; people like Neil Cameron, Guy Gibson, Tom Gleave, Pat Hancock, Micky Martin, David Morgan, Rene Mouchotte, Jeffrey Quill, Fred Rosier, Whitney Straight, Peter Twiss, Geoffrey Wellum, and so many more, a great majority of whom lived fascinating lives in and out of the service. There are nearly 1800 entries and as many of the pilots are illustrated as is possible.
