Nova: Bombing Hitler's Dams
In 1943, a squadron of bombers staged one of the most audacious raids in history—destroying two gigantic dams in Germany’s industrial heartland and cutting the water supply to arms factories—with a revolutionary bouncing bomb invented by British engineer Barnes Wallis. Wallis and the pilots of 617 Squadron, a lively mix of Britons, Australians, Americans, and Canadians known as the Dambusters, were hailed as heroes. Now, NOVA re-creates the extreme engineering challenges they faced. 2011/color-b&w/120 min/NR/widescreen.
