Amazing mission that really worked as a major morale boost in the dark days of the war, far more than it did damage to German industry. They where back up to full production within a few short months. Still Barnes Wallis bouncing bomb stands as testament to ingenuity that drives great men in times of crisis.

Check out one of his other Bombs Grand Slam the 22000lb "earthquake bomb"
