Summary

Summary

From 1943 onwards, Hitler and the Nazi propaganda machine poured forth a torrent of warnings to the Allies that vengeance and retribution were imminent. Historians have always assumed that Hitler was referring to the V1 and V2 weapons. But this book reveals that a far more lethal weapon existed in the form of a cargo of highly radioactive material carried in a modified V2 rocket. Designed to be launched from special sites in France, these weapons of mass destruction had the potential to turn Britain and the eastern seaboard of the USA into radioactive wastelands.
