Abstract:

Johnny Johnson is 92 years old and one of very few men who can recall first-hand the most daring and ingenious air raid of all time. On 16th May 1943, Johnny, alongside 132 specially selected comrades, took off from Scampton airbase in Lincolnshire. For six weeks they had been trained to fulfil one mission that was near impossible: to destroy three dams deep within Germany's Ruhr Valley. It was a daring task but, against the odds, Johnny and his crew survived. For the first time, Johnny relives every moment of that fatal night - and the devastating aftermath.
