There have been many accounts of tha famous raid carried out by 617 Squadron against the dams in may 1943,and I must have read most of them, but i am reading at the moment a book on the subject that can only be described as a Tour de Force, its the definitive work on the evolution of the bomb and the raid itself.
Written by John Sweetman, and simply called The Dambusters Raid, highly technical but full of frustration and tenacity and will dispell many of the myths surrounding the event, I recomend it,enjoy
