I'd rather not diss their technical prowess. They were way, way ahead of the Allies in this field.
And, like I said, I wouldn't have wanted to give them additional time to create stuff like a submarine-based platform that could conceivably have dropped a load on Manhattan.
And the fact that von Braun ended up working on the U.S. space program underlines it.
It's easy to say they could've been pummeled in hindsight. They were a dangerous, adaptable and cunning foe at the time.
