New Dambusters book

Just to advise the regular and itinerant browsers of this site, I have researched and written a new book on 617 Squadron, which will be released in hardcover this April. The book is titled "Australia's Dambusters: The Men and Missions of 617 Squadron" and it tells the wartime history of the squadron with a principal focus on the Australians who served with 617 - men such as Martin and Shannon. Plenty of new stories about these gallant lads and others, and a total of 160 photographs - some of which have never been published before. The book is now with the printers, but the publishers (Australian Military History Publications) are now taking any advance orders at and I will be personally signing every copy mailed out. I will even add requested inscriptions. No price has yet been placed on the book, but I have been assured it will be quite standard for a book of this fairly regular size. Many people have known for quite some time about this book being written, but now I have been given the go-ahead to begin publicising it. Thanks to all those wonderful enthsuiasts who have helped with information and stories, and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product myself!
