Dam Busters - Canadian Airmen of "Chastise"
Canadian airmen in the Royal Air Force is a story that appeals to me especially since my own father was of that special crew -- RAF No. 626 Squadron as opposed to 617, the "Dambusters" squadron.
"Operation Chastise" involved Avro Lancaster bombers delivering special ordnance against German dams in May of 1943.
When I was twelve or thirteen years of age I read my elementary school's copy of "The Dam Busters" (Paul Brickhill). "Dam Busters - Canadian airman and the secret raid against Nazi Germany" is next.
