You should also look up Dambusters, theres quite a few good docies about the raids. Basically some goofy engineer came up with the extraudinary idea
to blow up German dam walls, a mission as epic as the Doolittle raids I suppose.
What he did, and this was genius, is attach a very heavy bomb in the shape of a large whiskey barrel to the bottom of a bomber. Before the release the
bombs were already spinning at a high rpm. The bomb had to be released at the exact time, speed, altitude and distance. When the bomb his the water it
would skip across the surface untill it reached the dam wall, sink a few metres untill a depth charge made it go boom. The mission was a huge success.
