An amazing story!
on 10 September 2017
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's very insightful.
James Holland gives you so much more than the story of the raid, you feel part of the planning process, you read about the heroes that risked their lives; personal accounts of relationships as well as how they were feeling about the bombing missions and the toll the war was taking on these brave men.
You also get a good account of what happened after the raid, personal accounts from the aircrew and those affected by the breaches to the dams; it must have been truly terrifying to have lived in the path of the torrent that followed.
A well written account of a very important piece of our history.
