B y 1942 the tide of war had finally started to swing in the favour of the Allied forces. As the industrial might and great cities of Germany suffered as never before, Hitler promised revenge. Soon vengeance weapons were developed and deployed, a turning point in the technological history of warfare.

However, as the Allied forces closed in on the Third Reich, in a desperate attempt to stop the onslaught the V2 was launched for the first time. In the dying days of the Third Reich, who would have believed that such a weapon could have been produced? A weapon, if given more time, that could have completely altered the outcome of the war. Featuring rare archive footage, stunning 3-D computer graphics and rare film of the last surviving rockets, this is a privileged glimpse into the world of Hitler's arsenal.
