Max Hastings talks about ‘Chastise: The Dambusters Story 1943’

3rd October 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

£8

We welcome back Sir Max Hastings – one the UK’s finest military historians. This year he will be talking about his brand new history of the Dambuster’s raid. Operation Chastise, the destruction of the Mohne and Eder dams in north-west Germany by the RAF’s 617 Squadron on the night of 16/17 May 1943, was an epic that has passed into Britain’s national legend. Max Hastings grew up embracing the story, the classic 1955 movie and the memory of Guy Gibson, the 24-year-old wing-commander who led the raid. In the 21st Century, however, he urges that we should see the dambusters in much more complex shades.
