The history of 617 RAF Squadron (Dambusters) has been told many times but we should take pride in the many Australians who were on the dramatic raids. This book tells their proud and courageous story. The spectacular raids on the Ruhr dams in Germany were the peak of the Squadron's exploits but carrying massive 'Tallboy' and 'Grand Slam' bombs they later smashed much of the Nazi infrastructure.One particularly important success was the final sinking of the German battleship, Tirpitz, in a Norwegian Fjord, thus eliminating a major naval threat.

It is now 70 years since the Dams Raid and most of the men involved have left us but Colin Burgess has ensured that we will never forget them..
