Ss occupied Europe at a perilously low level and drop their bombs at a mere 60 feet above the water to destroy the dam walls Eight planes never returnedBestselling author Max Arthur has collected together first hand accounts of the preparation practise organisation and the raid itsel.

I can t believe I paid money for this book It is utterly unreadable It is composed in little paragraphs of oral interviews The story of the raid is not told just little bits of memories bouncing from person to person without any real continuity The raid itself is an incredible story but the only incredible thing about this book is that it was publishedI suppose this is a good add on to other books if you want deeper information on the bombing mission but don t purchase this book as a first source As a matter of face don t purchase at all
