Summary

The V2 rocket quickly became Hitler's greatest deadly weapon and beacon of hope to turn the course of the Second World War in his favour. When a V2 landed on a London store, killing 168 people, it ushered in the age of ballistic missiles and a race to stop the launches. Later on, America saw the V2 as a key prize in the Space Race. This documentary focuses on the soldiers, spies, and scientists who took Hitler's V2 rocket from dream to nightmare and then to the moon.
