Customer Review

on 16 January 2010
I bought this book as a Christmas present for my dad and he loved it. He's really into history, in particular the World Wars, so this book made a great addition to his collection.

He had wanted this book for ages and at first I couldn't decide which version he would prefer. In the end I chose the uncensored version so that he could read Guy Gibson's story in its full historical context, rather than reading the edited version that Dam Busters was based on. When you read it you can guess which bits might have been cut, which provides its own insight into the machinations of political censorship. And not only is this honest account of one man's experience packed full of facts, but it is also very well written which makes it a very touching and human read as well.
