I've just finished reading this one and thought it was pretty good. I was expecting a quick read but it was very detailed and thorough, with particular emphasis on the technological research and development behind the raid itself. The central thrust of the authors' revisionist argument is that the raid on the dams wasn't the inconsequential event that has been claimed in the past but a significant drain on the resources of the Third Reich at precisely the right time for the allies, so nothing particularly new. A worthwhile read though and definately one of the better books on the subject.
