`It's a fascinating read that includes time-lines of key events... A lasting tribute to the remarkable ingenuity and invention of these amazing scientists'. Sea Breezes -------------------- `I have, to be honest, become a little fed up with WW2 books and Hitler in general. That was until this wee gem of a book arrived. I rate this book very highly for bringing to us the science of war engineering in such a clear and enjoyable way, every time you pick it up you will learn something new... Definitely a keeper and will go into my library under "read here for fantastic facts"... ...a great read'. Army Rumour Service
