There are additional historical videos at the link. The first one, on the
trials of the R-1, show fascinating details of V-2/R-1 testing, launch
preparation, test equipment, etc that I had never seen before, for either
German or American tests. It clearly shows what a technological marvel the
V-2 was for its time. The causes of failed launches are illustrated with
animations to show exactly what went wrong. Remarkable !

There are also other films on R-5 testing etc here.
