 The Dam Busters: Canadian Airmen and the Secret Raid against Nazi Germany

 


For over 40 years Ted Barris’ writing has appeared in the Globe and Mail and the National Post as well as in a wide range of magazines. He has also worked as host/contributor for most CBC Radio programs and on TV Ontario. He recently retired as a full-time professor of journalism and broadcasting at Centennial College for the past 18 years.

Ted is the author of 19 bestselling non-fiction books, the latest of which, Dam Busters, will be released on September 11. It recounts the dramatic story of the May 16, 1943 high-risk Allied Bomber Command mission to fly 19 Lancaster bombers with 133 airmen into the industrial heartland of the Third Reich to destroy power dams on the Ruhr River.

The raiders breached two dams and severely damaged a third. Eleven of the Lancasters made it back as did 16 of the 30 RCAF airmen who participated.

Different Drummer Books will be present with Ted’s new book and Ted will be pleased to sign all purchases.
