V-1 Flying Bomb, 1942-52: Hitler's Infamous "Doodlebug"
The first deployment of the V-1 was in June 1944 when, following two years of tests, Hitler gave the order to attack England. Known to the Allies as the "Buzz Bomb" or "Doodlebug", the V-1 was the world's first cruise missile. This book explores the V-1 in detail, from its initial concept, first use in 1944, the various Allied counter-measures, and the later use of the V-1 during the Battle of the Bulge. The major foreign derivatives, including the US copy "JB-2 Loon" and numerous post-war Soviet variants, are also covered.

Review: V-1 Flying Bomb 1942-52: Hitler's infamous 'doodlebug' (New Vanguard #106)User Review - Daniel - Goodreads
If you were in London at the time that these came over you learned that if the engine kept running then it would fly right over you. It was when you heard the engine quit right over your head that you were in deep trouble. When that engine stopped, it pretty well came straight down. Read full review
