What became of the famous German jet fighters, that posed such a problem for Allied bombers even as the noose tightened around the neck of the Third Reich?

What happened to the V-1 rockets, the so called 'Verzweiflungswaffen' which represented an astonishing level of technological advancement at the time and caused considerable panic before effective measures to counter them were developed?

Moreover, what happened to the German scientists who developed these revolutionary weapons, and why were they not enough to win the air war - on top of the already formidable conventional elements of the Luftwaffe?

Just how far did American intelligence efforts go towards winning the air war, how did Americans learn the tactics, strengths and weaknesses of the Luftwaffe and use them to their own advantage, both in World War II - and beyond?

These questions and more compelling quandaries on aerial combat, aviation technology, intelligence and 20th century history are investigated and answered in Frederick Johnsen's new General Aviation title: Captured Eagles: Secrets of the Luftwaffe.
