The life, death and legend of Canada`s most decorated war hero, the Great War flying ace William Barker, of Dauphin, Manitoba

Amazon
Wayne Ralph, author, photographer

The biography is based on the unpublished writings, military documents, and published war record of William Barker (1894-1930), and also the interviews with family and colleagues who knew him, including his daughter, brother, sister, as well as four Great War flyers whom the author met and interviewed in the early 1990s.


Excerpt

...he was an emotional, intense boy with his heart on his sleeve, wanting very much to be liked. In his desire for approval, he reined in his emotions, and grew up with a sense of pride, dignity, and responsibility to others. Impatient and impetuous, he often reacted too quickly and jumped to conclusions. He recognized this flaw and practised any skill until it was second nature.

...Full of energy, he loved being on the move, and he excelled at thinking on his feet. The greater the chaos, the clearer his mind worked. It was a kind of genius, so believed his Uncle Howard Alguire: `Willie never asked himself if it was possible to do something, he simply did it.`
