qIn 1944, the V-1s and V-2s, Hitler's 'vengeance' weapons, were regarded by the British as the single greatest threat of the war. It was the job of the specialist bomb disposal teams to render the V-weapons safe and uncover their secrets. This is their story. In this unique book Chris has investigated the work of these unsung heroes who risked their lives every time they were called into action. In the course of his research he located the sites of many unexploded V-weapons, revealed here for the first time. The book is richly illustrated with 266 photographs and diagrams, many of which have never previously been published. In completing this, the most comprehensive study of its kind, the author describes the deeds of those gallant bomb disposal men.q Essence Magazine1, {-3 oeneral description a#39; 1. it diagram oi the flying bomb {was a#39;76aquot; in cam-, 1, * a#39; nomenclature) is given in Fig.1. aquot;la#39;iie body, Wings a#39;_-E_aquot;, : i a#39;. and Jet. propulsion unit; are made or sheet steel but a#39; the nose fairing, the elevators and the rudder are Iaquot;; made or aluminium ... 105! ins. in diameter, open at; one enda#39; and closed by a. grill (similar in general appearmce to the radiator or a motor car] at; the other.
