Book - War hero lied about record
The Associated Press
OTTAWA -- One of Canada's greatest war heroes lied about his war record, according to a new book.
Billy Bishop, a World War I pilot, is credited with 72 air victories.
In his book out in June -- "The Making of Billy Bishop" -- Canadian historian Brereton Greenhous said Bishop's superiors exaggerated his air victories, but then Bishop realized he could get get away with lying and continued to do so.
