Book Review- Enemy Coast Ahead Uncensored by Guy Gibson VC DSO DFC



Read this Heavily censored during the war at the last,what really happened!The true story in his own words of life as a pilot in Bomber Command from the beginning of WW2 in 1939 to leading the elite 617 Squadron in the "Dam busters" raid in 1943!
I couldn't put it down,absolutely riveting,the fact that Guy Gibson himself was shot down and killed in 1944 as a Pathfinder makes his personal observations and thoughts and fears even more poignant!

Comments:
I have an original edition with is excellent reading - I will definately be buying open of the revised versions
 
I read it about ten years ago, very good.
