2.0 out of 5 stars Not much cop, 22 Jan. 2014
A little-covered subject receiving some much-needed attention at last. This is very well researched, but oh dear, it really needs some life... there are hardly any eyewitness testimonies from: residents under attack; pilots or gunners trying to counter the threat; workers involved in building the launch sites; workers involved in building the weapons; scientists involved in designing them; German troops charged with launching the weapons... and so on. Von Braun and his work are hardly mentioned, however every UK Committee and memo in existence receives tedious long-drawn out attention with the end result that it's like reading a very dry official account. No colour at all and a real wasted opportunity. A real struggle to get to the end - but if you like reading all about the politics of how war is waged and decisions are made, without the real life bits, this is for you.
