Air Campaign 5

In mid-1943, Allied intelligence began to pick up the signs of unusual German construction in remote locations near the Channel Coast. Several massive fortifications were beginning to take shape, and they appeared to be oriented towards London. Allied intelligence codenamed these sites as “Crossbow” and began plans to attack them before they could bombard Britain’s capital city. These “Heavy Crossbow” sites for the V-1 and V-2 missiles were supposed to be bomb-proof, but they soon attracted the attention of RAF heavy bombers with the new Tallboy concrete-penetrating bombs.

Fully illustrated with commissioned artwork and contemporary photographs, Operation Crossbow 1944 examines the dynamics of the world’s first missile war. It also describes the parallel American efforts to develop missiles and assault drones to attack the “Heavy Crossbow” sites, including the Air Force’s Aphrodite and Navy Anvil projects.

A mediados de 1943, la inteligencia aliada comenzó a detectar señales de construcciones alemanas inusuales en lugares remotos cerca de la costa del Canal. Varias fortificaciones masivas comenzaban a tomar forma, y ​​parecían estar orientadas hacia Londres. La inteligencia aliada nombró a estos sitios como “Ballesta” y comenzó a planear atacarlos antes de que pudieran bombardear la capital de Gran Bretaña. Se suponía que estos sitios de “Ballestas pesadas” para los misiles V-1 y V-2 eran a prueba de bombas, pero pronto atrajeron la atención de los bombarderos pesados ​​de la RAF con las nuevas bombas Tallboy que penetran concreto.

Completamente ilustrada con obras de arte comisionadas y fotografías contemporáneas, Operation Crossbow 1944 examina la dinámica de la primera guerra de misiles del mundo. También describe los esfuerzos paralelos estadounidenses para desarrollar misiles y drones de asalto para atacar los sitios de “Ballesta pesada”, incluidos los proyectos de Afrodita y Yunque de la Marina de la Fuerza Aérea.
