Operation Chastise was an attack on German dams carried out on May 16-17, 1943 by Royal Air Force No. 617 Squadron. Publicized as the "Dam Busters", using a specially developed "bouncing bomb" invented and developed by Sir Barnes Wallis.
The Möhne and Edersee Dams were breached, causing catastrophic flooding of the Ruhr valley and of villages in the Eder valley; the Sorpe Dam sustained only minor damage. Two hydroelectric power stations were destroyed and several more were damaged. Factories and mines were also either damaged or destroyed.
An estimated 1,600 people drowned. The damage was mitigated by rapid repairs by the Germans, with production returning to normal in September.
