Description
Information
In this superb and detailed biography, Richard Morris, drawing on a vast array of previously unpublished papers, examines the life and profound character of Leonard Cheshire: a man whose war career brought him the highest military distinction and whose peacetime work of compassion earned him the Order of Merit. Who, as Group Captain Cheshire, was awarded the Victorian Cross after flying 100 operations in the Second World War, and witnessed the dropping of the atomic bomb on Nagasaki. And whose efforts on behalf of the disabled in peacetime led to the establishment of the Leonard Cheshire Foundation (now known as Leonard Cheshire), the world's leading disability care charity.
