On Course for the Mohne Dam by Richard Taylor features 617 Squadron's Lancaster bombers over Holland en-route to the dams.
Guy Gibson leads the first wave of 617 Squadron’s Lancaster bombers towards the German border and on to the Mohne dam. After crossing the coast a fraction off course, Gibson adjusts his compass heading slightly and, as the unmistakable thunder of 12 cylinder Merlin engines at full throttle shatters the night, follows the course of a large canal where the owner of an ancient windmill, hearing the noise, hurries outside to witness the event.
