The third volume in this now-established series expand its coverage to examine Nazi Germany's efforts to develop intercontinental weapons and nothing short of a space program. The author begins by examining whether the V2 rocket was the final development produced by Hitler. He then proceeds to examine, in great detail, Germany's efforts to develop what was called the 'America Rocket', an intercontinental weapon. Much evidence is produced to suggest that planning and preparation were underway for an attempted intercontinental rocket launch against New York at war's end.
A final section of the book examines further German rocketry projects that were on the drawing board by the end of the war, including sophisticated orbital craft. The text is supported by a selection of photographs and diagrams, as well as 16 superb pages of color artwork, including profiles, computer-generated images of drawing board designs, and pictures of the author's own models.
