The Sunday Times best seller
A masterly history of the Dambusters raid from best-selling and critically acclaimed Max Hastings.
Operation Chastise was one of the most extraordinary episodes of the Second World War, yet it has also become one of the most misunderstood.
Max Hastings tells the gripping story of the Dambusters raid, from the invention of the bouncing bomb to the moonlit cockpits of young pilots flying at treetop height through lethal enemy fire. But Hastings also challenges what we think we know about the Dambusters, bringing to light the difficult truths that have often been left out of the legend.
What the critics say
"Brings it to life as never before...Hour by nerve-jangling hour." (Daily Mail)
"Superb...The heroes shine, but their achievement haunts." (Times)
"A virtuoso performance from a veteran military historian. It is a white-knuckle narrative that brings clarity and insight to a much-loved tale, as well as offering a vital corrective to the drum-thumping conclusions of earlier books." (Sunday Times)
