Summary, etc.:
It was one of the most daring and controversial missions in WWII history: On May seventeenth, 1943, an elite RAF squadron flew deep into Germany's Ruhr Valley carrying five-ton experimental spinning bombs that needed to be dropped from a height of exactly 60 feet at precisely 240 mph in order to destroy three key dams in the Nazi industrial heartland. Oscar nominees Michael Redgrave and Richard Todd star in this gritty docudrama that depicts the infamous Ruhr Raid from drawing board to attack.
