The fifth aircraft to attack the Möhne dam on the night of 16 / 17 May 1943, Flt.Lt. David Maltby powers Lancaster AJ-J away from the target as his Upkeep mine successfully detonates against the already damaged dam wall. Within seconds the dam will rupture releasing a terrifying wall of water flooding into the valley below.

This prestigious limited edition portfolio, issued as a lasting tribute to the Dambusters and the men of 617 Squadron, includes an individually numbered copy of the book THE DAMBUSTERS.

Presented in its own luxury embossed slipcase, each book is accompanied by a matching-numbered copy of Anthony Saunders’ dramatic limited edition print COUP DE GRÂCE – THE MÖHNE DAM.
