After World War II rocket scientist Wernher von Braun left his native Germany for the United States, where he became famous as the father of the American space program. Before and during the war, however, von Braun and his fellow German rocketeers had abandoned their dreams of space travel and put their genius to work for the Nazi war machine. They created the V-2 rocket, which killed thousands in London and elsewhere; worked with the Luftwaffe to develop liquid-fueled rocket engines for aircraft; and designed the Wasserfall anti-aircraft missile, which was abandoned before completion. The Nazi Rocketeers tells the dramatic story of these and the Third Reich's other top-secret rocket projects.
