CITIES AT WAR: LONDON (Black/White, 50 Minutes)
The venerable Grenada series on the great cities besieged during World War II concentrates its attention for most of the final third of this episode on the terror and destruction wrought by V-weapons upon the city of London.


V-Weapons, known in original German as Vergeltungswaffen (German: "retaliatory weapons", "reprisal weapons", "vengeance weaons), were a particular set of long-range artillery weapons designed for strategic bombing during World War II, particularly Strategic bombing and/or aerial bombing of cities. They comprised the V-1, a pulsejet-powered cruise missile; the V-2, a liquid-fueled ballistic missile (often referred to as V1 and V2); and the V-3 cannon. All of these weapons were intended for use in a military campaign against Britain, though only the V-1 and V-2 were so used in a campaign conducted 1944-45. After the invasion of Europe by the Allies, these weapons were also employed against targets on the mainland of Europe, mainly France and Belgium. Strategic bombing with V-weapons killed approximately 18,000 people, mostly civilians. The cities of London, Antwerp and Liege were the main targets. They were part of the range of the so-called Wunderwaffen (superweapons, or "wonderweapons") of Nazi Germany.
