The Guinea Pig Club is a unique body of grievously burned, often seriously disfigured and handicapped WWII Allied airmen who were under the care of acclaimed plastic surgeon, Sir Archibald McIndoe. at the Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead, England. In 2001, the Guinea Pig's Club's 60th Anniversary year, Edward Bishop revises and expands his perceptive account of these unique aviation heroes who had escaped from blazing, exploding and crippled bombers and fighter planes. Author Bishop tells the stories of these fighting men, from McIndoe's earliest war-time patients, and marvels at the way their courage and heroism gave them the hope to carry on with their lives, while displaying a delicate balance between candor, sympathy, horror and humor. And he lets many of the members tell their own stories in their own way and with previously unpublished photographs. McIndoe's Army is a totally rewritten version of The Guinea Pig Club, published by Macmillan in 1963!; 160 pages
