   Original compilation from College Park master. Operation Backfire—organized by the British authorities immediately after the end of hostilities in Europe—was designed to completely evaluate the entire V-2 assembly, interrogate German personnel specialized in all phases of it, and then actually launch several missiles across the North Sea. Following the successful conclusion of the tests, the War Office in London issued this documentary film, along with a 5-volume report, detailing these operations.

   After the German surrender, the British attachment of the Allied Air Defense Division became known as the Special Projectile Operations Group (SPOG). The Air Defense Division had been charged with the task of collecting information about the secret German rockets to formulate effective countermeasures before the close of the war. When the wayward V-2 crashed in Sweden late in 1944, the British government gained a small glimpse of the German missile after securing the wreckage. From this mangled mass, British intelligence obtained a small amount of information about the A-4/V-2, but the Allies could only speculate how the missile was transported, fueled, and fired during the wartime attacks. The objective of the British War Office was to discover as much possible from the German launching troops and scientists while they were still together and the details were still fresh in their minds. This should be done by carrying out the operation of assembly, fueling, and firing, using the captured Germans who would be supervised by British technical experts. 342-USAF-13175; ARC ID:64839 PD

   Rare Army and newsreel film from the early days of American rocket research following the end of WWII. Includes early scenes of the burgeoning Army rocket facility, White Sands Proving Ground (later to become White Sands Missile Range), rocket research, systems analysis, onboard photography, high altitude research and telemetry. B/W and color sequences, some with audio narration.

   Following their surrender to the Americans at the close of the war in Europe, Germany’s top rocket scientists agreed to continue their rocket work in America for the United States government. Along with trainloads of captured German missiles and equipment, they arrived at Fort Bliss in early 1946. By March 1946 the first captured V-2 was static test fired at White Sands and in April 1946 the first V-2 was launched. That summer a team of GE specialists took over the test-firing of the “American” V-2s. From 1946 to 1951 the Army generated an increasing expertise in rocket technology and launched 67 V-2s from White Sands, establishing high altitude and velocity records that reached to the very edge of space.

   At the conclusion of the testing program for the V-2, the Army transferred its rocket team under Dr. Von Braun to the Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama, to continue work on basic research and prototype development of new rockets. Launch Complex 33 at the White Sands Missile Test Range tested and launched the very first generation of technologically sophisticated rockets that enabled Americans to probe to the very edge of space.

   Rare and unedited German V-2 rocket film reels from World War Two. These films were used by the engineers and scientists to study the performance of test missiles launched from locations such as Peenemünde, Heidelager, Heidekraut. Because most TV production companies will not show any footage with slight imperfections, many of these reels have never been shown or broadcast in past V2 documentaries on television. Interesting footage of misfires and crashes. B/W and color sequences.

   Includes scenes of Field Equipment Testing, Rocket Servicing, Rocket Transportation and Field Maintenance. Shown are: Field Tests from Prüfstand 10 in the summer of 1943, with vehicles such as the Meillerwagen, Feuerleitpanzer, Cable Trailer and others. Firings from Prüfstand VII in March-April 1943. Field Tests show vehicles - early preparing - fueling. Original film of German instructional movie about Field Maintenance shot at Blizna, with many scenes showing special instruments. Unique shots of left side of Prüfstand 7 arena. Includes test firings and failures. Most launches from P7, but some in the beach area of P10. Includes: "Der 100 Schuss" The 100th Shot. This collection of captured German V-2 rocket film reels will not be found anywhere else.
