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

Realistic props, in addition to detailed sets, added to the look of authenticity in re-creating the German secret weapons projects. See more »
Although Gruppenführer (SS-Group Leader) Linz wears the correct rank insignia shoulder strap for the rank of Gruppenführer (equivalent to Wehrmacht Generalleutnant/Lieuteant General), his poorly made and not at all accurate collar badges rather resemble those of a Brigadeführer ( (equivalent to Wehrmacht Generalmajor/Major General) See more »
After a pretty dull beginning, "Operation Crossbow" increases its tensions and becomes a fascinating action/adventure film set in WW2. A little-known representer of that genre, but not much inferior to "The Guns of Navarone". Lots of suspenseful moments and an interesting cast full of familiar faces.
