The Tirpitz. Winston Churchill referred to it as “The Beast”, a formidable, 53,000 tonne battleship that was arguably the most potent symbol of Hitler’s naval power. Churchill made its destruction a top priority, to be sunken at all costs. This is the story of perhaps the most important and daring air raid carried out by the legendary RAF squadron known as The Dambusters.
