Following on from the success of volume 1 Friedrich Georg's second book in the series covers unconventional short- and medium-range weapons. In particular this volume includes a wealth of information about the V-rocket programme not just the more familiar V-1 and V-2 but special variants of these two rockets as well as later experimental craft and weaponry.
Following a fascinating examination of pre-war efforts to build flying bombs the author examines the V-1 and V-2 projects in great detail. Particular attention is paid to special variants that have previously received little coverage. These include the V-2 A-4 'America Rocket' and V-2s designed to carry nuclear and radiological warheads. The capability of the Germans to deploy such weapons is also discussed. A large number of weird and wonderful projects that never left the drawing board are examined including the FR-35 V-6 V-101 Waterfall and Naval EMW A-7 rockets. The fascinating final section examines German plans to utilise such rocketry against London and Paris in 1945 as well as recounting the activities of V-weapons on other fronts including Italy Yugoslavia and the Eastern Front.
The text is supported by b/w photographs and 16 superb pages of colour artwork including profiles computer-generated images of designs that never flew and pictures of the author's own models.
