  1. Hi

    Just released a new ebook readers might be interested in. I write short ebooks at a low cost. Military History for the masses, not the elite few. Each ebook of WW1 and WW2 True War Stories, is packed with photographs, maps and leading personalities of the day.

    On the 70th Anniversary of the 'Dam Buster Raid.' We pay a tribute to RAF No. 617 Squadron. The brave men who breached Germany's industrial dams in the Ruhr Valley in May 1943. It became the most famous air operation in WW2.

    Code named: 'Operation Chastise' a secret squad of Lancasters attacked the Mohne, Eder and Sorpe Dams with Dr Wallis-Barnes 'bouncing bombs.' The Dam Buster mission included aircrews from the Royal Australian Air Force, Royal New Zealand Air Force and Royal Canadian Air Force (& US crew).

    In 1955, the 'Dam Busters' film, burst across cinema screens around the world to national acclaim. The daring exploits of Guy Gibson and 617 Squadron, were forever immortalised as 'The Dam Busters.' However, the success of Operation Chastise, which gave a major boost to the British war effort, would always be marred by the tragic loss of 1,650 German civilians.

  2. Crabs, not interested.
     
  3. Does the doggy get a mention by name, or has he been redacted?
     
  4. He's now called Afro-Caribbean Ethnicity, unfortunately by the time Gibson called his name out a 3 tonner ran him over.
