Description

‘What the Dambusters did next’.

The legend of the Dambusters had been born, yet of the seventy-seven men who returned from that iconic first raid, only forty-five would survive to the end of the war – so what happened?

Famed for their specialist precision attacks, 617 Squadron would prove themselves again and again, dropping the largest bombs ever built on Hitler’s prize battleship, Tirpitz, on crucial railway viaducts, secret rocket sites, U-boat construction pens and a German super-gun which would have rained 600 shells an hour on London.  From the catastrophic night-time bombing of the vital Dortmund-Ems Canal to an attack on Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest, ‘After the Flood’ tells the thrilling and sometimes heart-breaking story of what the Dambusters did after the Dams raid.

Open daily from 10am to 5pm (except Christmas Day)
