Perhaps the most famous single mission in the RAF's illustrious history, the Dams Raid, took place 75 years ago in May 1943.

To commemorate the landmark mission, Squadron Leader Clive Rowley MBE RAF (Retd) a former Officer Commanding the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, re-examines an old story with the benefit of modern research.

This publication, which includes hundreds of rare photographs and stunning artwork, commemorates the men of No.617 Squadron plus the engineering brilliance of Barnes Wallis and his colleagues at Vickers and Avro.

It's a story which does not need embellishment, but which famously received the Hollywood treatment; a fabulous tale of ingenuity, daring and raw courage. All military actions are made up of mistakes, myths and a few miracles - the Dams Raid contained them all.

Dambusters: The Most Daring Raid in the RAF's History also covers the brilliant post-Dams Raid work done by 617 Squadron as a specialist precision bombing unit.

In 1943 Operation Chastise, as the Dams Raid was officially named, established a legend that still resonates today.
