What really happened on the night of the Dambusters raid?

Following extensive research, acclaimed military historian Max Hastings urges us all to examine the Dambusters in more complex shades. Having grown up embracing the story of 24-year-old wing-commander Guy Gibson and his crew's bravery on 16 to 17 May 1943, Hastings reveals how although some of the legends are true, the team also made some devastating errors and mistakes.

He sets the Dams Raid in the big picture of the bomber offensive and of the Second World War and offers moving portraits of the young airmen who made the mission a success including Barnes Wallis, Sir Arthur 'Bomber' Harris and the tragic Guy Gibson.

This is a superb narrative of one of the most extraordinary episodes in British history.
