Enemy Coast Ahead ~ Uncensored


First published in 1946, Guy Gibson’s book covers his life in the RAF up to his return from the famous Dambusters raid which, of course, he led. Required reading by generations of schoolboys, what none of us knew at the time was that Gibson’s writings had been carefully cut by the censors to conceal  aspects of his career and Bomber Command operations, as well as remove a number of Gibson’s views on the conduct of the bombing campaign, senior officers and more. This edition is Gibson’s words as he wrote them, the story as he wanted to tell it, which makes it an even better read. 288 illustrated pages. Paperback
