The Story of Antwerp X — cover


BUZZ BOMB IN FLIGHT   Welcome to our recreation of The Story of Antwerp X, an electronic version of the original pamphlet-sized history of the Allied antiaircraft offensive against the V-1 flying-bomb attacks on Antwerp (the animation at left shows a few frames of a V-1 in flight; once the animation stops, reload or refresh the page to view it again). The pamphlet was published in October 1945 by the 50th AAA Brigade. If you've arrived at this page directly, you may want to start with our overview. A NOTE ON BROWSING: For each smaller page-image of the pamphlet, we've provided a larger version (click on the link "view enlargement in new window") in case you find the first image too small to read (the statistical charts and graphs on later pages are only legible in the larger format). The Webmaster would like thank the uncredited men of the 50th AAA Brigade who ensured that this important part of WW II would be preserved through this modest, fact-filled, and colorful historical document.
