Each bomber will carry two or three 5/8” markers representing aircrew, ordnance and possibly an elite crewman.It's very rare to get an eye witness account for WWII that covers events in the UK and Germany throughout the war, but Guy Gibson saw them all from his plane. As this is the Uncensored version, it contains Gibson's unfiltered opinions of of his commanders, Bomber Command, and the Government in general. You can always impose extra training, but push your men too hard and they become fatigued, perhaps even damaging their bomber in training or worse, crashing it.

Written by the man himself this is a no nonsense memoir that gives a glimpse of men who did their duty, under the command of a man who was driven to do his best to ‘get the job done’. The book covers his career in the Royal Air Force from the beginning of the war where he flew the obsolete Handley Page Hampden into battle through to the end including the famous Dambusters Raid. This book maps out the brief service record of this very brave man, from his operations at the beginning of the second world war, to his most recognised raid on the Dams of wartime Germany.And yet, what has not been widely known is that the published edition of Enemy Coast Ahead was carefully cut by wartime censors. His campaigns, interspersed with fighter sortees, talks in relative detail, security allowing, about his companions, aircraft and methods of warfare.

This account of Guy Gibson's service during the Second World War written by the man himself is pretty gripping stuff.On the night of September 19th, 220 Lancasters and 10 Mosquitoes attacked railway and industrial centres at Rheydt and Mönchengladbach ( present - day North Rhine - Westphalia, Germany ).

It is also an insider's account that sets down in clear, honest detail the challenges that the RAF faced in the war against Germany's Luftwaffe. The game is also presented in nine scenarios, each isolating a particular aspect of Operation Chastise. While not 100% accurate in describing the "Dambusters" mission this first person narrative is outstanding.Gibson talks about the rivalry between Bomber Command and Fighter Command, especially after the Battle of Britain, when so many heroics were attributed to the fighter force. Now I am more aware of Guy Gibson the human and have a better understanding of who he was, before and after that one mission he is best known for. I have read several accounts of the air war over Europe, both from the perspective of the Royal Air Force and the U.
