About this item

Description "Here is the first photographic report on the robot bomb since the censorship was lifted. In this nine-minute capsule of buzz-bomb terror, 'V-1' brings to the screen in 16 mm sound-on-film a subject which will arouse its audiences to a vivid realization of the terror that life in London must be under the robot. 'V-1' includes spectacular shots of the bombs being destroyed in mid-air by anti-aircraft fire and by fighter planes." "Scenes include: robot bomb attacks which killed or injured 26,000 persons by September 30, 1944 and destroyed or damaged a million houses. There is one tremendous moment when, in one of the most sensational scenes of the war, a 'V-1' is caught on the wing by a British plane" (Business Screen December, 1944, No. 2, Vol. 6, p. 41).
