The moving story of RAF Bomber Command's most famous squadron and Operation CHASTISE, arguably the most famous air exploit of WWII.

The stirring 'Dam Busters March', written by Eric Coates as the theme to the movie, was almost immediately adopted as an official march of the Royal Air Force. Enser, p.64; Mulholland & Jordan B121
