The inside story behind the famous WWII Dambuster raids against Nazis Germany. The author Guy Gibson commanded the RAF's legendary 617 Squadron and led the remarkable bombing missions to destroy German hydroelectric power stations. Book also includes coverage of Gibson's entire combat service during the course of the war.

First published in 1944, Enemy Coast Ahead combines Guy Gibson's RAF career, including the famous Dambuster raid which he himself led, with the inside story of life in RAF Bomber Command and is still a riveting read for the immediacy and vibrancy of its writing. And yet, what has not been widely known is that the published edition of Enemy Coast Ahead was carefully cut by wartime censors.

Now, Gibson's original manuscript, which was archived for almost 75 years, has been be brought to light. This uncut edition provides not only previously unpublished details of Gibson's career, but also reveals his true view of the course of the war, of the wartime population, of his pilots and crews and of Bomber Command tactics. Combined with newly added photographs and diagrams Enemy Coast Ahead

Published 2012, 288 pages, 33 black & white and 10 colour photographs, softcover, 6 1/2" x 9 1/2" (inches)
