  • Beginning in Spring 1943, this historical documentary follows squadron leader Guy Gibson as he assembles and trains a crack team of 133 young airmen whose mission is to destroy the great dams of Germany using a revolutionary new bouncing bomb. If successful, they’ll deal a hammer blow to the Nazi war effort.

    Dan Snow reveals how an intensely focused team pushes human skill and engineering capability to their limit to tip the balance of World War Two in the favour of the allied forces.
