Squadron 617 was an elite British Air Force unit formed to carry out a single, special and dangerous mission - dam busting. "Operation Chastise" has become a legend in the annals of military history. It possesses revered military attributes of originality, technology, surprise and heroism, coupled with a very dramatic outcome. "Operation Chastise" has in many ways foreshadowed subsequent technology and missions that uphold the legacy of Squadron 617 throughout World War II and beyond.
