Further Details

The story of the V1 and V2 weapons and the struggle between three powers to gain control of the scientists behind the project. Red and black dust jacket, dark brown cloth-covered boards, gilt titles to spine, 279 pages, illustrations from photographs, related newspaper cuttings left laid in. A review left laid in complains that there are references to footnotes that do not appear; my random check did not find nay references which are not supported by notes in the Notes and Sources chapter. Condition: Some blotchiness to the boards, foxing to external top edges of pages. A little wear to the edges of the dust jacket, with light foxing to verso.
