55,573 members of Bomber Command lost their lives during the Second World War, yet no Campaign Medal was awarded and their bravery and sacrifice goes largely unrecognised. At last this is to be corrected with the erection of the Bomber Command Memorial in Green Park, London, in 2012. The journey from the initial idea to the unveiling of the memorial has been a long and complex one for those involved and ‘The Bomber Command Memorial - We Will Remember Them’ tells the story of the campaign; locating a site, obtaining permission, raising the funds, designing the memorial, and the opening ceremony. The book also tells the remarkable story of Bomber Command from the viewpoint of those who took part, and veterans reflect on the experiences they had and what the memorial means to them. All the royalties for the book go the Bomber Command Memorial Fund registered charity.
