Product Description

The infamous "Doodlebug" unmanned jet-propelled projectile a.k.a. Fieseler Fi 103 was developed by the Nazis in 1939 at Peenemünde Army Research Centre on the north eastern tip of Germany. Prompted by the Normandy Landings in June 1944 the V-1 (Vergeltungswaffen, vengeance weapon) was first used to attack London the week after D Day. It was a sinister menace with a distinctive sound from its rocket motor which cut out moments before impact. More than 9000 Doodlebugs were launched against London and the South East, creating terror and mayhem until October 1944 when the Nazis began firing them into the liberated Low Countries, finally being silenced a matter of weeks before VE Day in May 1945.
