DAMBUSTERS - THE IMPOSSIBLE MISSION
“Dinghy” Young releases his hydrostatically-triggered, cylindrical bouncing bomb at precisely 60ft and 230mph as he approaches the Mőhne Dam. It was a direct hit. The dam has but moments to live.
Robert Taylor has once again chosen to depict one of the most audacious air raids of WWII, the historic attack on the hydroelectric dams in the heart of the Ruhr Valley. This release from the world's foremost aviation artist captures the very essence of the Dams raids and is simply outstanding.
THE IMPOSSIBLE MISSION is now considered an all-time classic Robert Taylor edition.
