German Secret Weapons of the Second World War by Ian V. Hogg

Book Description

A detailed weapon by weapon study available for the first time in paperback Reveals the full extent of the Third Reich's secret weapons programme Separates fact from wartime propaganda and myth 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. This book explodes some of the myths surrounding Hitler's secret weapons to reveal a truth all the stranger for being fact. Ian V. Hogg was a respected authority on all aspects of weaponry and the author of numerous books including German Artillery of World War II and The World's Sniping Rifles.
