During World War II, Hitler's scientists developed terrifying new weapons of mass destruction. Allied intelligence pored over millions of air photos shot over German territory by specially converted, high-flying Spitfires. With 3D graphics that recreate exactly what the photo spies saw, NOVA tells the suspenseful, previously untold story of air photo intelligence that played a vital role in defeating Hitler.

        Comments about PBS NOVA: 3D Spies of WWII, Destroying Hitler's Top Secret Rockets DVD:

        My Dad was a member of the 30th Photo Reconnaissance Squadron of the Ninth Army Air Force deployed in Europe to follow Omar Bradley's First Army from the Normandy beaches to Berlin. The American P-39 planes were fitted with cameras and converted to photo reconnaissance planes. His job was to maintain the cameras, retrieve them if necessary, and develop the film. They developed photos for maps of the Normandy beaches, France, Belgium and other areas needed for the Allied invasion. He received a bronze medal for his efforts. Until I watched this film I had never seen anything about his part in the War. All his records were lost in the fire in St. Louis so I have no paperwork. I wish there had been something about the American involvement and how the two countries worked together on aerial photo reconnaissance. Thanks for the great film.

        Despite all my readings focusing on WWII, I had never heard of this intelligence group. Amazing what they accomplished. I sent the DVD to my son-in-law a current AF officer for his enjoyment.

        The coverage of the analysis of the photos was very interesting. The details of the V1 launch pads was new to me. I do recall being near London at the time, and of seeing the V1 and V2 in the Science museum after the war so this was of special interest to me.
