Max Hastings Chastise: The Dambusters Story 1943

Max Hastings Chastise: The Dambusters Story 1943
 
 Starts at 7:00 pm

The Dambusters raid on the night of 16th May 1943, known as Operation Chastise, is one of the most famous episodes of the Second World War, immortalized by the 1955 film.

Best-selling military historian Max Hastings vividly describes the evolution of Barnes Wallis’ bomb, and of the bravery of the squadron which broke the dams.

But he also brilliantly portrays those swept away by the torrents when the dams were destroyed and puts the raid in the wider context of the war effort and the big personalities involved in the bomber offensive at one of the most dramatic moments of the war.

Cost: £10
