The Dambuster raid, as it has become known, was one of the most famous operations of the war. Led by Wing Commander Guy Gibson, the 19 specially modified Lancaster bombers attacked the Mohne, Eder, Sorpe and Ennepe dams, with the Mohne and Eder dams being breached. This caused widespread destruction to both the German war effort and to food production. Operation Chastise was the official name for the attacks on the German dams. Plastic model kit.
