Kindle Short Reads: The Dam Busters - 'Operation Chastise' - World War 2; Maps, Photographs and Famous Leaders.


5 Star Amazon Review. Mark R.
A ‘no frills’ look into what was a remarkable operation. The facts are all there and they are presented in a very readable manner. Thoroughly recommended.

A tribute to RAF No. 617 Squadron. The brave young men, who breached Germany's industrial dams in the Ruhr Valley in May 1943. 'Operation Chastise' became the most famous air operation in WW2 - a secret squad of Lancasters attacked the Mohne, Eder and Sorpe dams with Dr Wallis-Barnes' 'bouncing bombs.' The Dam Buster mission included aircrews from the Royal Australian Air Force, Royal New Zealand Air Force and Royal Canadian Air Force (& US crew).

In 1943 Sir Winston Churchill was under pressure to persuade Josef Stalin and Franklin D Roosevelt that Britain was an effective ally in WW2. The objective of Operation Chastise
was two fold: Firstly, to flood the Ruhr Valley to disrupt major armament production and water and electricity supplies. Secondly, to aid the Soviet Union by keeping the Luftwaffe
and anti-aircraft forces away from Russia. This military strategy culminated in the winter of 1943, with the RAF raids on Berlin.

In 1955 the 'Dam Busters' film, burst across cinema screens around the world, to national acclaim. The daring exploits of Guy Gibson and Squadron 617, were forever immortalised as 'The Dam Busters.' But, the success of Operation Chastise would always be marred by the loss of 1,650 German civilians.

  • This e-book has been accurately researched and proof read. It is ideal for 'YA Readers' and readers with a 'General Interest' in WW2.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Short, sharp and to the point. 14 Mar 2014
    By Mark R
    Format:Kindle Edition
    A ‘no frills’ look into what was a remarkable operation.

    The facts are all there and they are presented in a very readable manner. Anyone wanting to know what happened during Operation Chastise on the night of 16–17 May 1943 would do a lot worse than to use this book as a starting point.

    Thoroughly recommended.
