They were the Dambusters – the pilots and crew of the RAF's elite 617 Squadron. They flew the most difficult missions. They breached the Dams! They sank the Tirpitz! They were the only squadron to drop the immense Grand Slam bombs and with them they destroyed bridges, viaducts and even Hitler's impregnable U-boat pens.

In this unique book, introduced by Dams raid survivor, George 'Johnny' Johnson, authors Colin Higgs and Bruce Vigar present no less than nine exclusive interviews with men who flew and fought in 617 Squadron during the Second World War. These men took part in virtually every operation the Squadron flew and went on some of the most daring and dangerous missions of the war. The result is one of the most vivid and unforgettable accounts of the RAF at war ever written.

The book features a series of firsthand accounts, relayed from transcripts of original conversations between the authors and the various interviewed veterans.
