Synopsis by Sarah Ing
During World War II, America had the bomb, but Germany had the V-2 rocket. Nova goes behind enemy lines to trace the construction of Hitler's secret weapon. Using real footage, including some test-shot film, this PBS program traces the years between 1933 and 1945, during which time Hitler developed the advanced rocket and used it in assaults on London and Antwerp. Nova also investigates whether the weapon could have altered the course of history. Nova: Hitler's Secret Weapon features interviews with rocket pioneers Werner Von Braun and General Walter Dornberger.
