    PDF bchipdigital.co.uk ì Dambusters eBook Ö dambusters kindle, Dambusters MOBIArthur's oral histories are always well worth reading; in the case of 617 Suadron he's done what few others have and sought out material from the ground crews and other nonflying personnel and the comparison of their reactions to the horrific losses of the Dams raid and those of the flying personnel are a little off putting; the ground crews WAAFs and Barnes Wallis were weeping the air crew who'd made it back were celebrating One thing that would have made the book a bit useful would have been to show the date of each piece; for instance there are multiple interviews represented for some people and anything published during the war should have be taken with a large grain of salt due to censorship Overall Arthur did a fine job of picking telling pieces and organizing them; his attention to the ground crews and to the people in Germany who suffered the effects and witnessed a couple of

    PDF bchipdigital.co.uk ì Dambusters eBook Ö dambusters kindle, Dambusters MOBII am really interested in anything to do with WWII era Britain and Germany and Cold War era Berlin and so I had to pick this book up when I saw it for sale in a local shop This is uite unlike anything else I've ever read in that the author is mainly hands off in the re telling of the events of the Dam raids in Germany Instead he leaves it to the crews of the Lancasters to tell their stories There are also stories from some of the German people involved such as rectors artists and even a diary entry from Goebbels which I thought gave a fair perspective on things I already knew a little about the Dambusters but I felt that I came away from this book having learnt a lot This will be something that I'll be re reading in the future
