After training in Canada, Joe McCarthy completed a tour of operations with 97 Squadron before being personally selected by W/C Guy Gibson to fly on the Dambusters Raid. Joe continued with 617 for another 13 and a half months, participating in an additional 33 challenging and varying operations with this “special duty” squadron.

Following the war, Joe spent time with the RAF’s “Foreign Aircraft Flight” flying Nazi aircraft to the U.K. and evaluating them before completing his RCAF career in Canada. The author has made extensive use of video and audio interviews recorded following Joe’s retirement. (6″x9″; 298 pages; 195 photos)
