At the start of World War II, Germany led the field in nuclear physics, having confirmed the fission of uranium in 1938. From 1943 onwards, Hitler and the Nazi propaganda machine warned the Allies that vengeance and retribution were imminent. Until now, historians assumed that Hitler was referring to the V1 and V2. This book shows that the real vengeance weapon existed, not as a wild fantasy of Hider's imagination, but as a cargo of highly radioactive material carried in a modified V2 rocket, to be hunched dom special sites in France.
