Möhne Dam

During the night of 16 - 17 May 1942 the dam was attached by 617 squadron of the Royal Air Force, and severely damaged (along with the Eder and Sorpe dams). The following flood of around 110 million cubic metres of water devastated the Möhne valley. From the nineteen aircraft which took part, only nine returned.
