by Anthony Saunders
With silver moonlight glinting on the wave tops below, Guy Gibson leads the first wave of Lancaster’s low across the North Sea to avoid enemy detection, on the night of 16/17 May 1943. In formation with ‘Mick’ Martin on his port side and ‘Hoppy’ Hopgood to starboard, Gibson heads towards the Dutch Coast and the Ruhr valley beyond – their mission, the destruction of the Mőhne and Eder Dams.
