David Bailey flew to Afghanistan earlier this year to take photographs for auction to raise money for `Help for Heroes', a charity that aims to help wounded servicemen and women returning from Afghanistan. The result is his latest book of photographs, a fitting celebration of Britain's fighting heroes, showing life inside both inside Camp Bastion and also outside the perimeter, where real danger is ever-present. Dylan Jones, editor of GQ, who accompanied Bailey on the trip, provides a well informed and engaging foreword on life in the camp. All sales of this book will benefit `Help for Heroes'.
