I really enjoyed this book. It reads like a novel. But it's all true. The most interesting thing to me was the tracing of concept to execution of the raid in less than two months. All this with no computers or simulators. Just pencils, paper, brainpower and slide rules to design the bombs and plan the mission. Not to mention the guts to pull it off.

New facts, I did not know about. Good research. Plane crews names and what happen to them. Different story lines about others; not just about Gibson.

Rather slow paced but much better than the plodding movie. The Germans managed to restore the dams and their electrical output in a very short period of time. So, was it worth the lives of all those British aircrews? Sadly this entire mission is lost in the history of WW II.
