Herschel McKee's remarkable life story reads like that of a comic-book hero.
A daredevil, a leader of men and, above all, a survivor, McKee fought in both World Wars, suffering numerous skirmishes with death. His colourful life included spells as a Foreign Legion soldier, fighter-pilot ace with the elite Lafayette Flying Corps, prisoner-of-war escapee, racing driver, WWII bomber-wing commander and test pilot.
His amazing resilience led to him being nicknamed 'The Man Who Would Not Die' while he was still alive.
Written in a lively, engaging style, here is the true story of an extraordinary man.
