Re-live the legendary story of 617 Squadron and their wartime exploits.
Packed full of colourful works along with many maps, diagrams and specially commissioned unseen artwork, this stunning visual record leads us through the preparations and execution of the Dambusters Raid. From the development of the ‘Bouncing Bomb’, the crews that took part and a detailed account of the mission, we are then taken on a journey into the units’ exploits after Operation Chastise.
This historically accurate book has been painstakingly researched with the direct assistance of world renowned expert Dr Robert Owen, official historian of the 617 Sqn Association. Lavishly illustrated with work by the world’s leading aviation artists, inspired by first-hand accounts from the veterans involved, the 128 pages provide a unique insight into the incredible story of the Dambusters and the subsequent wartime exploits of the legendary 617 Sqn.
