A book on German weapons during this time period.

German Secret Weapons of World War II (Greenhill Military Paperbacks) by Ian V Hogg Ian V Hogg

Description:
The phrase 'German Secret Weapons' immediately conjures up images of the V-1 and V-2 missiles which bombarded London in 1944. But what of the V-3 and V-4? What of Schmetterling, the Rochling shell, the Kurt bomb, the Hs293? These, and many other devices, were all part of the German secret armoury but are relatively unknown except to a handful of specialists. What of the German nuclear bomb? And the question of chemical warfare? The sheer magnitude of the secret weapon projects of the Third Reich is revealed in this comprehensive study written by one of the world's great experts on weaponry, which captures both the reality behind the weapons actually produced and the intentions behind projects still in their infancy when the war ended. German Secret Weapons of the Second World War examines the various fields in which the Germans concentrated their weapon development and discusses the multiplicity of ideas, the difficulties, and, in several cases, how these ideas were subsequently exploited by the victors. Comparisons with Allied projects are also drawn. Although much of the German wartime development was not completed before the war's end, it nevertheless provided a foundation for a great deal of the munitions development which has since taken place. This book explodes some of the myths surrounding Hitler's secret weapons to reveal a truth all the stranger for being fact.

During World War II alot of great advancments in technology were made. Some, such as the atomic bomb, would change the world as we know it.
