German Research in World War II

£1,200.00

Product description

Some small tears to dustjacket and bumps to corners and top and bottom of spine. Pages inside tight and clean with lots of diagrams, maps, and photographs.


1947 first edition of a book describing German engineering research during World War 2, and is a must have for anyone researching the period. The cover is also of interest to Tintin lovers as it inspired the rocket in some of Herge's best known Tintin adventures: Destination Moon and Explorers on the Moon. The rocket is obviously iconic to any lover of Herge's work but the book itself also features in The Calculus Affair (see pictures for the strip in question).
