Its always struck me as strange just how advanced German military designs were compared to the allies- not just in rocket design, but in infantry and
artillery weapons, armour and aircraft and yes, U boats, leaving the Allies looking at least a decade behind.
Actually, that is just not true. The allies had much better bombers, fighters, radar, sonar, they developed the proximity fuse, their Intelligence was
much better. Their command and control of their aircraft was much better etc. None of the german secret weapons were a surprise to the allies, they
knew about them during their testing phases.
I suggest you read "Jones, R. V., 1978, Most Secret War: British Scientific Intelligence 1939-1945, London: Hamish Hamilton. ISBN 0-241-89746-7
(Published in the USA as The Wizard War with the same subtitle.)"
