Summary
In one of the defining moments of the Second World War, a revolutionary bomb created by aircraft designer Barnes Wallis destroys key German dams and helps to win the war for the Allies. Seventy years later, with Wallis blueprints lost, can anyone recreate this historic scientific achievement? Cambridge engineer Hugh Hunt intends to find out. Engaging, informative, and compulsive viewing, Dambusters recounts the fascinating story of one man's drive to recreate the spectacular bouncing bomb by blowing up a 130-foot-wide dam while demonstrating its complexity and true destructive force in real time
