From a man who did it,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Enemy Coast Ahead- Uncensored: The Real Guy Gibson (Soft Cover) (Paperback)
We have probably all read this and the uncensored version helps make sense of a few bits of blatant editing in the original.
Gibson wrote with dash and verve (I reject the idea this was ghosted by Roald Dahl)and the book is classic Boys Own adventure. Gibson was there and he writes about the changing nature of the war with candour.
If I have a small regret it is that a different font was not used for the "new" bits so we can all see what was deemed too sensitive in the immediate period it was published. That would also be historically useful info, but to those familiar with the original it does follow. However with modernity comes a range of photos not available in the earlier editions and these add much to the enjoyment.
The book is an enjoyable addition to the original edition and deserves to be in as long a printing history. I found it valuable beyond measure for my own book, kindle version Heroes of the RAF - Guy Gibson VC (Hereoes of the RAF) and the book version Heroes of the RAF - Guy Gibson VC (Hereoes of the RAF)
