Great Tales from British History free pdf British history is rich in enthralling stories: pivotal moments that changed the future of the country- moments of drama, suspense, intrigue. Dive right into the heart of the action of the bouncing bomb attack on German dams in the Second World War. And then the lights were switched on and Gibson looked for that perfect position, 60 feet above the surface. The spinning of the bomb had been started some 10 minutes beforehand. All was now ready. From the last-minute flight preparations to the final attack at the Sorpe, this account captures the moments at the very heart of the Dam Busters' heroic attacks. Plunging the reader into the middle of the story, this is narrative history at its most evocative and readable. Charting the bouncing bomb attack through the accounts of several different members of the bomber crews, W. B. Bartlett is able to build up a picture of events in all three bouncing bomb attacks.
