Summary

James Holland presents an analysis of the 1943 air attacks by the RAF, in which 19 Lancaster bombers ventured into the industrial heartland of Germany to destroy three heavily defended dams with the new bouncing bomb. He argues that the raid was the best-executed and most important of all time and explores whether its true impact has been underestimated - and if the result should have been even greater.
