This is the story of the methods used to defeat Hitler's V1 (doodlebug) and V2 (rocket) "revenge weapons" towards the end of World War II. Even though the Nazis were in retreat, these weapons could have turned their defeat into victory. This movie includes references to Hannah Reich, who was a German test pilot in real-life.Written by

After a pretty dull beginning, "Operation Crossbow" increases its tensions and becomes a fascinating action/adventure film set in WW2. A little-known representer of that genre, but not much inferior to "The Guns of Navarone". Lots of suspenseful moments and an interesting cast full of familiar faces.
