De (autor)
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Paperback – March 2006
First published in 1944, Enemy Coast Ahead combines Gibson’s RAF career, including the famous Dambuster raid which he himself led, with the inside story of life in Bomber Command and is still a riveting read for the immediacy and vibrancy of its writing. Now, for the first time in paperback, Crecy Publishing has published Gibson’s original manuscript which was archived for almost 60 years. This uncut edition provides not only 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 photographs and diagrams Enemy Coast Ahead – Uncensored remains one of the outstanding accounts of WWII seen through the eyes of one of its most respected and controversial personalities, but now allows the reader to know Gibson’s own story in his own words.
