This British project was code-named Operation Chastise. Historic assessment The bombing of the German dams was a critical part of Operation Chastise, the planned attack on the dams of the German Ruhr region. The strategic purpose of the attack was to cut the Ruhr off from its transport routes, and it was intended to render Germany impotent in the face of a British attack. This strategic operation was designed to make Germany's industrial production capacity irrelevant, and thus render the German army unable to conduct an effective military defence. The Operation was conceived by the Chief of the Air Staff, Sir Charles Portal, and led by Air Chief Marshal Sir Arthur Harris, with the specific aim of destroying the German dams in the Ruhr, which they believed to be critical to the German war effort. Churchill was informed of the plan on 7 August 1944, and his enthusiasm for the plan was noted, with the Prime Minister saying that "we owe a great debt to the people of this country for creating an atmosphere in which this great feat can be successfully carried out." The raid was planned for about 100 sorties at an estimated cost of £1.5 million. Its principal aim was to detonate the main dams in the Ruhr, thereby flooding a large part of the industrial region, which would be cut off from its transport routes. The briefing was carried out by Harris, Air Vice-Marshal John Lloyd, Air Marshal Sir Trafford Leigh-Mallory, the director of Bomber Command, and Air Commodore Charles Douglas Mould. Because of a perceived lack of co-ordination, Harris was replaced in July 1944 by Portal. The plan was put into effect on 31 July 1944, starting the RAF's contribution to the bombing campaign over Germany. Bomber Command carried out five attacks over the Rhine-Ruhr area on the night of 31 July – 1 August 1944. On 31 July, 40 aircraft set out from one airfield. Thirty-seven of these bombed the targets. Eight of the remaining aircraft failed to release their bombs and were unable to release flares, so they turned for home. On the night of 1 August, a further 70 aircraft were dispatched. On the night of 1–2 August 1944, 65 aircraft set out from two airfields. The first attack was made at 1800 hours on 1 August. Fifty-five aircraft made their attacks. On the night of 2 August, another 65 aircraft set out from two airfields. Fifty-six aircraft
