Recommended Read of the Week

Just finished 'Dambusters' by Robert Radcliffe and it's a very interesting read. The detail is fantastic and you can almost hear the merlin engines of the Lancaster bomber and see the one's who didn't make it.  It's an accurate portrayal of events, crafted by Radcliffe who is an excellent storyteller. There is a romance but the novel is anything but a romanticised version of World War 2. The camaraderie portrayed is realistic and I can now, more than ever, begin to understand why some of those courageous men felt such a sense of loss after the war. It was an experience they would never feel again.
