Send More Shrouds, The V1 Attack on the Guards’ Chapel 1944

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Grateful for the sub-title that makes clear this has nothing to do with shroud waving Comrade Corbyn cynically jumping on any passing bandwagon. At the point of the war where the Allies could scent victory over Germany, the V1 began arriving over London. This is a graphic account of the most deadly V1 attack of WWII. Aerial bombing is never a pretty sight, but the use of crude unmanned flying bombs removes all pretence of deliberately targeting military sites. – Highly Recommended.

A valuable addition to a very popular series. – This reviewer wonders about the addition of ‘special’ to some books in the Images of War Series, because they are all special. However this book is well up to standard for the series – Highly Recommended.
