This is the story of the methods used to defeat Hitler's V1 (doodlebug) and V2 (rocket) "revenge weapons" towards the end of the second world war. Even though the Nazis were in retreat these weapons could have turned their defeat into victory. The film includes references to Hannah Reich, who in real life was a German test pilot. Written by

This is truly a remarkable film, a thinking person's war movie. Characters never seem to end up doing what you expect them to do (or end up having done to them what you'd expect of major stars). It keeps you on the edge until the spectacular ending which is as full of action as the rest of the film is full of intrigue. Everyone from the actors to the technicians are at their best in this epic. A good double-bill would be Guns of Navarone, though frankly, this is the more believable film.
