This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

A definitive new edition of a classic memoir, published in association with the RAF Museum, complete with more than 100 photographs and notes from leading historians.

Guy Gibson was the leader of the famous Dambusters raid and Enemy Coast Ahead is a vivid, honest account, widely regarded as one of the best books on World War II. It is also an insider's account that sets down in clear, honest detail the challenges that the RAF faced in the war against Germany’s Luftwaffe.

Tragically, Gibson died in September 1944, when his Mosquito crashed near Steenbergen in the Netherlands. He was aged just 26. This new book has been published to mark the 75th anniversary of his death and includes an introduction by James Holland, a historian and broadcaster; notes by Dr Robert Owen, the Official Historian of the No. 617 Squadron Association and many images that have never been published before.

As a salute to Gibson on the 75th anniversary of his death, which is tomorrow, the publishers have decided to offer the Kindle/ebook version as a free download on the Amazon.co.uk site for 24 hours only from midnight tonight. You can access the download from this link. For north American readers, there will be a similar download available on the Amazon.com site from midnight US EDT.

Thanks for posting I enjoy reading anything related to the Lancaster...my Dad was a rear gunner during WW2, can't even imagine how it must have felt like flying in one of those and like most of his generation he never spoke about it. I took him to see the last flying Lancaster the RAF have at the Battle of Britain Memorial Centre in Coningsby back in 1998 shortly before he died. Pretty memorable experience to see it close up and completely awesome hearing its Merlin engines start and watch it take off.

Sounds like a great visit, each summer we get a lot of the RAF BBMF aircraft in and out of our local airfield here's a Spitfire from last week

I'm always pretty awestruck when I see those three aircraft in the air, you're pretty fortunate to see them regularly...I know some devotees travel hundreds of miles just to catch a glimpse of them. Its such a shame that out of all the thousands of aircraft's that flew during WW2 only a handful remain and just those that make up the memorial flight.

Great photos...looks like you had a front row seat!
Thanks, ansonuk1👌

Just remembered to download it
Thanks.
I used to fly a club Cessna 172 and was always conscious of it carrying 40 gallons of highly flammable fuel. Lancasters carried 2000 gallons and were being fired on from the ground and air. Bomber Command aircrew deserved a medal for every single mission
