Edgar James Kain, known affectionately as Cobber to his fellow pilots, was killed at the age of 21. Yet in just a few hectic months before his death he became an international celebrity as the RAF's first fighter ace of World War II, and was the toast of Allied messes in France for his uncanny ability to shoot down German aircraft. This lavishly illustrated book details the short but glorious life of this heroic Kiwi, using previously unpublished photographs from his family's private collection.
