This book is from the Ballantine War series detailing Hitler's Secret weapons Programs of WWII. Many of these projects did not work, and Brian Ford goes through the massive inventory of German secret weapons with crisp writing and considerable authority. His text is backed up by fine illustrations and photography. Sadly, the Germans did not do a great job of photographing the secret projects that were not the V-weapons, so most of those pictures consist of complex blueprints, out-of-focus photos of test firings, or postwar pictures of intrigued British intelligence officers closely studying midget submarines and unfired missiles.

  • Adrietius
The Germans were ahead of their time with the aircraft designs, But the V2 program was even more bold, This is a really fine book about those and other German secret weapons.
  • Arith
Excellent book, very happy with condition.
  • Thoginn
It was a great book, but this particular copy was poorly printed and many pages are blank.
  • Samugul
Not the book I was expecting but will keep it.

McDonald Publishing and the Imperial War Museum teamed up back in the late 1960s and early 1970s to publish this tight series of illustrated paperbacks on the history of World War I, World War II (and a few other conflicts of the 20th century), which were picked up by Ballantine in the United States. They were all divided into subjects: battles, campaigns, weapons, war leaders, politics in action, human conflict, and regalia, by color bands on the bottom, enjoying common editing and artwork, and a fairly common collection of well-known historians. They cost $1 at the time (a good deal of money) and a lot more now (being out of print).

The series as a whole is slightly outdated by the disclosures from Allied codebreaking, and suffered from being whipped together in a hurry, but they remain then and now a fine introduction to conflict in the 20th century -- if you can find them.

Germany's secret weapons are not that much of a secret -- the V-1, the V-2, and the Me 262 jet fighter are among the best-known weapons of World War II and history in general. However, their development, use, and misuse is not as well-known. Nor were those three weapons the only secret devices the Germans created -- they came up with "snorkel" devices to enable submarines to recharge their batteries while partially submerged, guided missiles and bombs, rocket-propelled fighter aircraft, and even a bizarre fighter-bomber combination in which a fighter atop an unmanned bomber full of explosives, took off latched together, headed for the target. When near the target, the fighter released the bomber, and guided it by remote control into the stationary target.

Many of these projects did not work, and Brian Ford goes through the massive inventory of German secret weapons with crisp writing and considerable authority. His text is backed up by fine illustrations and photography. Sadly, the Germans did not do a great job of photographing the secret projects that were not the V-weapons, so most of those pictures consist of complex blueprints, out-of-focus photos of test firings, or postwar pictures of intrigued British intelligence officers closely studying midget submarines and unfired missiles.

There are chapters on subjects most readers don't know about -- the botched Natter project, early surface-to-air missiles, midget submarines, and jets and V/TOL planes that never got off the drawing board, He points up the strengths of the German secret weapon projects -- their skilled engineers and scientists -- and the weaknesses -- the feudal nature of the Nazi regime that inhibited orderly scientific and engineering development.

The German secret weapons achieved considerable destruction and ironically gained considerable publicity -- the men who built the V-2s that blasted London ultimately built the Saturn Vs that took men to the Moon. There is great irony in that, which is not covered in the book. However, to find out where that all began, this book is a pretty good place to start.
  • Lahorns Gods
I read this book translated to the portuguese, here in Brazil.I'm an agronomist and I like to read books.
This book is concise, short, full of photos(all Black And White) and very easy to read.
The failures of this book are small.The biggest failure of this book is, to be very short.This book hasn't enough informations, about this subject.Even as an introduction to this subject, this book hasn't enough informations.
  • Zadora
About twenty years ago, I read this weak book, about Nazi Germany secret weapons.
And this book is weak even in title, about Nazist secret weapons.
There's more photos, than text, in this book. This book is concise and easy to understand, but outside these advantages, this book is weak.
As an example of this weakness, about V-2, there's some informations, but the author didn't wrote that V-2 production by slave's labor, killed more slaves than enemies in London.
