This is the only biography of Captain Bairnsfather 'The Man Who Won the War'.. His cartoons, seen by tens of thousands of troops in the trenches and by families at home, were a centre plank in the morale of the the armed forces and civilans alike.
The book tells of Bairnsfather's early struggles, his giant leap to fame, his flirtation with the actress Constance Collier and the making of the first Canadian WW1 film and it financial troubles. Then throughout, there is 'Old Bill', the moustached old soldier who, with his companions Bert and Alf,, made light of the privations and experiences of front-line soldiering..
We wrote our first small guide-books to the battlefields almost 40 years ago and since then have enlarged and updated them regularly. We do all of the research ourselves and take all of the photos on the ground.
Our aim is to make everything easy to find and easy to understand. There are many maps and photographs to help recognition and most books have GPS.
Have a good trip.
