Highly classified SS papers, which were only issued to a secretive unit called Kommandostelle S, have revealed the full horror of the bombings.They show how Germans died at the hands of their own leader in 1944 and 1945 – who then blamed the carnage on Allied Forces. The rockets were launched during the closing months of the Second World War as Hitler’s last role of the dice.
SS commanders ordered all documents relating to the V2 – the V standing for Vergeltungswaffe, or Vengeance Weapon – to be destroyed.
But the charred remains of some of the reports were rescued and document how desperate Nazis had levelled their own towns and cities while developing the deadly weapons.
The V2 rockets, which were 46ft tall and launched from mobile units, were fired at London and England’s south east, killing over 7,000 people.
It was the most advanced weapon used in the war until the US dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945.
