"The Dambusters", by Paul Brickhill, is a documentary account of the raid on the Ruhr Dams by 617 Squadron in 1943. You get the full story, from Barnes Wallis's conception of the mission, his development of the bouncing bomb, the trials, and then Guy Gibson's assembling and training the squadron. And then the raid, following each aircraft, and what happened to it. It's the core of the film of the same name, though that also draws on Gibson's wartime autobiography "Enemy Coast Ahead". Really well done.
