Hitler s Rocket Soldiers Book Description:

"This book tells the story of the V2 through the eyes and experiences of the men who not only fired the missiles at targets such as London, Norwich, Antwerp, and Paris, but also of some of the military scientists and technicians involved in its development... The accounts show that, mostly, they were not stereotypical and ideologically indoctrinated 'Aryan warriors', but very ordinary soldiers and technicians living through extraordinary times... The book also describes the development of German rocketry following the end of the First World War and the technology embodied within the V2"--Dust jacket.
