During the summer months of 1944, a daily onslaught by V-1 jet-propelled flying bombs, heading for London and southern England, was countered in the skies of Kent and Sussex.

In this significant work, respected historians detail every known success by the defending pilots of over 13 nationalities, and where detected, record all locations and casualties of V-1 impacts in London and the south east. In doing so, they rely not only on official documents and combat reports, but also on the vital accounts of the pilots and those on the ground, many of which are quoted verbatim.

A concise and thorough account of two important actions from the opening round of the Franco-Prussian War, August 1870. An incisive and detailed narrative is accompanied by full orders of battle for both French and German forces and maps.
