Very cool grouping I have enjoyed for a long time. The first piece is a V1 rocket (Or V1 Flying Bomb) tinnie. I believe it is a homemade piece but it is well done, metal and includes etched lines for contours and markings seen on the real thing. The pin on the back is soldered on and is loose but would be an easy fix if need be. I would think this was probably made during the war by some HJ kid. The booklet is the hard to find The Story of Antwerp X. It details the joint British, Polish and American effort to counter the threat of the V1 Flying Bombs. The book is filled with interesting charts, graphs and information and is a very interesting insight to this particular German threat and the actions taken to counter it. Printed just after the war by AAA Brigae, US Army. Condition is excellent with clean and bright pages throughout. Very minor soiling to rear cover combined with minor age wear leaves this book in excellent condition.
