Osprey New Vanguard 106 : V-1 Flying Bomb 1942-1952 : Hitler's Infamous 'Doodlebug'

The first deployment of the V-1 was in June 1944 when, following two years of tests, Hitler gave the order to attack England. Known to the Allies as the 'Buzz Bomb' or 'Doodlebug', the V-1 was the world's first cruise missile. This book explores the V-1 in detail, from its initial concept, first use in 1944, the various Allied counter-measures, and the later use of the V-1 during the Battle of the Bulge. The major foreign derivatives, including the US copy 'JB-2 Loon' and numerous post-war Soviet variants, are also covered. Text by Steven J Zaloga with illustrations by Jim Laurier.
