review After the Flood

After the Flood review Å 3 Aid became an enormous propaganda triumph The survivors were feted as heroes and became celebrities of their timeThey had been brought together for one specific task – so what happened next Of the 77 men who made it home from that raid 32 would lose their lives later in the war and only 45 survived to see the victory for which they foughtFew are aware of the extent of the Dambuster suadron’s operations after the Dams Raid They became the ‘go to’ suadron for specialist precision attacks dropping the. This book really deserves a higher rating Nichol an RAF veteran himself has focused on the part of 617 Suadron history that is often overlooked but that really made their lasting reputation their re creation under Wing Commander Leonard Cheshire and his successors from a suadron almost entirely destroyed in two showy but brutally costly operations into what Air Marshal Harris proudly called his sniper suadron Nichols has gathered together spectacular personal accounts not only from survivors of the Dams raid but from lesser known men who flew with 617 Suadron during the period when they developed techniues that enabled them to hit precise targets bridges viaducts V weapon sites individual factories U boat pens and perhaps most spectacularly the battleship Tirpitz Readers familiar only with the raid on the dams are going to be surprised by what the Dambusters did later in the war and Nichols weaves the many personal accounts into the story very effectivelyAnd yet what should have been a four star book gets three because of the piles of boneheaded errors of fact Clearly the book was not proofed for this and readers need to be aware that there are really serious mistakes sprinkled throughout the book Lieutenant General Joe Kennedy is just one of dozens There are infelicitous sentences here and there and errors of tense I hate to see what is a valuable book brought down by what are completely avoidable mistakes Highly recommended but with reservations
