  • Operation Chastise, the destruction of the Mohne and Eder dams in north-west Germany by the RAF's 617 Squadron, is a story that has passed into British legend. The brilliance of Barnes Wallis and the heroism of the young fliers are not in doubt but in this new evaluation of events acclaimed historian Max Hastings assesses the true cost of the operation in terms of lives lost, and its failure to deliver the crippling blow on the Nazi war machine that was promised.
