Barnes Wallis: Dambuster
Peter Pugh (au)
The story of British engineer & scientist Barnes Wallis, who is best known for his invention of the Bouncing Bombs which destroyed the Mohne, Eder, Sorpe & Ennepe dams in the Ruhr in May 1943. Wallis also had many other achievements in his long career. His first notable contribution was on the R80 airship during World War I, followed by further work on the airships R100 & R101 during the 1920s. He made valuable design contributions on the Wellesley & on the Wellington bomber which served the RAF throughout World War II. Following the success of the bouncing bomb & its naval equivalent, TALLBOY, Wallis then produced the big bomb known as Grand Slam. Few others made as big a contribution to winning World War II as he did. Photos.
