Guy Gibson, VC

£25.99

Product description

19 September 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of the death of Guy Gibson, one of the most well-known heroes of the Second World War.

This book, originally published in 1994 as Dambuster - A Life of Guy Gibson VC, has been revised by author, Susan Ottaway, and contains hitherto unpublished information about Guy Gibson's life and family relationships.

The author was privileged to be able to speak at great length to members of Gibson's family and from those family members came the details for the original book and for this revised edition. It seemed inappropriate in 1994 to include these additional facts but it is now felt that enough time has passed and that they should be disclosed, as they serve to illustrate exactly how difficult was Gibson's early life and how great was his success in overcoming these difficulties.

Guy Gibson VC - The Glorious Dambuster, a title coined by wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill, also contains 115 photos, some of which have not been seen before.
