THE DAMS RAID - Through The Lens
by Helmuth Euler
The story of the attack on the Möhne and Eder dams in the Ruhr has been recounted many times before but not until now has it been told from the German side. Helmuth Euler has spent over a third of a century studying the raid and its consequencies, collecting an unrivalled archive of documents and photographs, and producing documentary films on the attack. His book Wasserkrieg (literally 'Water-war'), published in Germany in 1992, has now been translated and adapted for this After the Battle edition in the 'Through the Lens' series.
The author's sources include official records recently released from international archives and the statements of witnesses who played leading roles in the planning and execution of the raid. From the German side, there are accounts from those who experienced the misery in the river valleys. The attack on the Möhne, Eder and Sorpe dams made world history: now over 400 rare photographs, documents and compelling eyewitness accounts show the background and consequences of one of the greatest catastrophes to strike Germany in the 20th century.
