Synopsis

In 1942 and 1943 rumors began to circulate in Britain about a giant rocket that the Germans were devising to destroy London. Most experts declared similar weapons a scientific impossibility but between 1944 and 1945 more than a thousand of these rockets exploded down on British soil killing nearly 3000 people and injuring another 6000. Hitlers Rockets tells the story of this technically brilliant but morally detestable weapon the ancestor and forerunner of all subsequent ballistic missiles. An absorbing story of war and science this is the kind of serious history that entertains like the best kind of fiction.
