Max Hastings on the iconic story of the Dambusters
Max Hastings offers a fascinating new perspective on one of the most extraordinary episodes in British history.

Hastings grew up embracing the story, immortalised in the classic 1955 movie. In the 21st century, however, he urges that we should review the Dambusters in more complex colours.
