Pilot's Flying Log Book & Enemy Coast Ahead
Wing Commander Guy Gibson VC DSO DFC
PILOT’s FLYING LOG BOOK no 2
Published in 1976 by After The Battle Magazine. Fine condition. A pristine copy of this scarce publication.
This is a superb replica of Gibson’s Log Book no. 2 reproduced from the original held in the Public Records Office, London. This is now a collector’s item in its own right and covers the Dams Raid and Award of VC, the last entry being 16 September 1944, three days before he was killed. As close as you can get to owning the real thing!
The publishers suggest that for maximum understanding and appreciation of the log book, it is studied in conjunction with Guy Gibson’s autobiography ‘Enemy Coast Ahead’ written in 1944 but published posthumously in 1946 so here is a copy of the latest uncensored edition of the book – the story as Gibson wanted to tell it.
ENEMY COAST AHEAD – Uncensored
Crécy First edition, 2003. A new hardback book and DJ.
The Introduction was written by Arthur Harris and there is nothing else to add:
‘This is a magnificent story, well and simply told, by as great a warrior as these Islands ever bred. It is also History.’
No Dambusters collection could be complete without copies of these two books.
