Not only has Glasgow produced some incredible personalities it has also been witness to some of the greatest happenings of our times. These outstanding people and epoch-making events are featured in Great Glasgow Stories III. Once more, as a result of painstaking research, some startling new facts have emerged about the life and times of some of the city's most interesting characters. Of the many individuals documented in this book, the story of the world's greatest pilots, and many of his flying feats are still held in great awe today and unlikely to ever be repeated. He was hailed as a hero in America they gave a him a ticker tape reception in New York and Holywood begged him to be a star. More recently Glasgow was popularised by a TV programme about one of the city's tough police officers, Taggart. The role of the Glasgow detective made Mark McManus one of Scotland's first international TV starsand Mark's own life stery makes equally compelling reading. Before Billy Connolly Glasgow's greatest-ever comedian was Lex Mclean. He smashed all the box-office records in a Glasgow theatre and becam a legend in his own life time. His story has never before been told in such detail. This is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating studies ever published
