55 573 aircrew of Bomber Command lost their lives during the Second World War yet no campaign medal was awarded and their bravery and sacrifice went largely unrecognized. On 28 June 2012 this was corrected with the dedication and unveiling of the Bomber Command Memorial in The Green Park London. The journey from the initial idea to the unveiling of the memorial was a long and complex one 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. 50% of all receipts go to the Bomber Command Memorial Fund registered charity.
