Deutsche Raketen und Lenkwaffen - bis 1945 (Typenkompass)

Deutschland lag bis zum Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges weit vorne in der Entwicklung von Flugkörpern und Raketen - nicht umsonst wurde nach der Kapitulation waggonweise Material in die USA und UdSSR geschafft und Wissenschaftler mehr oder weniger freiwillig zur Mitarbeit bei den Siegermächten verpflichtet.
Bislang einzigartiges Material aus Griehl´s umfangreichem Archiv wird erstmals in diesem Buch veröffentlicht.

German V-Weapon Sites 1943–45 (Osprey)

Designed to change the course of the war, the V weapons required ambitious plans to defend their expensive and complicated launch sites. Steven J Zaloga describes the configuration and planned deployment of heavy missile sites, as well as the unique Allied tactics developed to counter this threat, including a remote-control version of the B-17 bomber.

From the V-1 ski sites to the mobile basing employed by the V-2 units and the other secret weapons bases like the 'V-3' high-pressure gun at Mimoyeques, this book examines the impact of these weapon systems and defences not only on the war but on modern weaponry. With many of the sites described still surviving today, this is a perfect companion for a tour of the V weapon sites built during World War II.

Contents: Introduction - The V-weapon programs - Design and development - The Allies intervene - The sites at war - The missile sites in retrospect - The sites today - Further reading - Index.
