Heroes of Coastal Command - The Maritime War 1939 - 1945

Just over 120,000 words, the document is with Frontline Books they will know doubt let me know the publication date (April/May 2018 probably) there are nine chapters (sub-titles may change) the main characters in the biographies are:

1: Wing Commander ‘Jack’ Davenport AC DSO DFC* GM – 455 Squadron
2: Wing Commander Edric ‘Sam’ McHardy DSO DFC* – Someone on my Shoulder
3: Flying Officer Lloyd Allan Trigg VC DFC – Consolidated Courage
4: Wing Commander ‘Bill’ Sise DSO* DFC* – Ship-Buster
5: Flight Lieutenant Denis Healy DSO, NWC – High Arctic Flight
6: Lieutenant Colonel Jean Maurice Guedj DSO, DFC* CdeG – Legacy of Valour
7: Wing Commander Roger Morewood MID – Marking Time
8: Flying Officer Allan Triggs MBE, DFC and Flying Officer John Watson – The Sea Shall Not Have Them
9: Wing Commander Ken Gatward DSO, DFC* AE and Sergeant Gilbert ‘George’ Fern – Operation Squabble

Speaking selfishly do pre-order:

From the horrors of being in a dinghy in Biscay to the heroism in the fjords of Norway and Atlantic Ocean and initiation over St. Nazaire Raid to dropping the French tricolour on the Arc de Triomphe - Heroes of Coastal Command is a gripping story.

Best regards Andy Bird
