Object description

Production line of Fiesler Fi 103 flying bombs at the Central Works , a vast underground production plant at Nordhausen in the Harz Mountains, Germany, following its capture by Allied troops. Production of the V1s numbered 32,000; by March 1945, when the sites were finally overrun by the Allied armies, some 5,500 V1s, each carrying a one-ton warhead, had reached Britain.
