** An outstandingly rare WW2 Restricted military intelligence report, every distributed copy with its own unique security number, this being 'Copy No 224'.
Very few examples of this classified and security-numbered report have survived and only a tiny handful are privately-owned.
WW2 RESTRICTED report Copy No 224 German Rocket Power Plants
CIOS Intelligence Report. XXXII-75. Combined [British/US] Intelligence Objectives Sub-Committee (CIOS). August 1945.
** Information on rocket power plants developed in Germany including drives for controlling missiles, the Me-163, assisted take-off units and various solid-fuel applications.
CIOS 'Black List of targets for urgent investigation' category: Rockets & rocket fuels; directed missiles
About 80 pages (some unnumbered), about 30 figures, photographs and sketches, mainly 'fuzzy'and poorly printed.
Very good in original stapled card wrappers. Protected in a modern clear archival jacket.
Because of the sensitivity of the material this report contained, it was quickly suppressed, and not subsequently issued in unclassified form.
One of the rarest of the CIOS reports.
