Tim Bouquet 617: Going to War with Today’s Dambusters

The richest and most gripping account of the RAF at war for a generation. In 1943, 617 Squadron executed one of the most daring operations in military history. Nearly 70 years later, a new generation of elite flyers followed their Dambuster heroes to war. Flying supersonic Tornado GR4 bombers, 617 was deployed to Afghanistan to provide close air support to troops engaged in conflict on the ground. Tim Bouquet was given access to track every mission – and the resilience, banter and exceptional airmanship that see 617 through. Tim Bouquet is a journalist and author. He contributes to the Telegraph Magazine and The Times Magazine. He lives in West Sussex.
