Stationed in a heavily defended Norwegian fjord was Hitler’s mightiest warship, Tirpitz. Its mere existence had a significant effect on the Allied naval strategy of WWII and its destruction was deemed by Churchill to be of the greatest importance.

The young crews of the Halifax bombers sent to attack the Tirpitz in 1942, flew head-long into a cauldron of fire from which there seemed no escape. Their courage and sacrifice was great, buy they could not succeed, as the plan for the Halifax raids was fatally flawed.
