I've changed the title, as we have some other designs now, than just type 2 ...

Max Valier actually was quite succesul in designing liquid fuelled rockets, although he died in an
accident with one of his developments. Nevertheless, as a designer of aircraft, he's not undisputed.
He was a supporter of the development of rockets, but according to several sources, he was more an
author and novelist, than an aircraft designer, with a foible for some sorts of pseudo-science. And many
of his designs are more "Imaginations of the future from the past", than real aircraft designs.

From Ailes 5/1945.
Context. Great find, hesham, Thx!!!!! Only Alexandre Annanoff, founding father of the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) could have authored this article in 1945. He befriended with Eugen Sänger, and had a huge knowledge of astronautics (pre)history (Rynin's encyclopaedia, pre-war correspondence, etc.). The very title of this article implies connections with Sänger's top secret report UM-3538 whose contents he helped popularize, later. FWIW, Sänger did not flee to the US or Soviet Union, but settled in Chatillon worked in / for France (Onera) where he regularly met with his friend Annanoff. Sänger's son, a good friend of mine who passed away :'(, showed me once where they lived in France.
