The Saturn V contains 5 rocket engines, each of which had a diameter of 33 feet (if I recall Apollo 13 correctly). So at it's widest point, the rocket would have to be over 100 feet in diameter, creating 7.5 million pounds of thrust--enough to put the spacecraft into orbit along with the next set of engines which would push it off to the moon.
If you mean rockets used in wars, then the rocket that would have been a precursor to the Saturn 5 would be the Nazi Vengence rockets, specifically the V2 and the not widely used V3 which I don't think actually got used before they were rendered useless due to the war ending. The V2 had the capability of reaching near space, well out of reach of fighter planes of the time which had the job of trying to shoot them down before they got too high.
The V1 and V2 rocket technology was developed and perfected by a team of German scientists under the leadership of pioneering rocketeer Dr. Wernher von Braun. It was von Braun, considered to be the top rocket engineer of the century, who was Germany's key leader in rocket technology that led to the success of the V1 and V2 rockets. Toward the end of the war, pioneer pioneer von Braun led his team to the American lines and surrendered to the Allies, rather than face being captured by the advancing Soviets. He and his team were brought to the United States, and after a period where their records were "bleached" by U.S. intelligence of their former past, they were put to work on the U.S. rocket programs. Von Braun became NASA's leader in rocket development, which culminated in the design and success of the Saturn V rocket.
The V2 rocket was a World War 2 rocket created and used by the Germans to deliver bombs onto our allies, primarily onto Antwerp and London. It also has the distinction of being the first rocket to reach sub-orbital space flight, however this was incidental to it purpose as a weapon. Wernher von Braun, was a primary designer of the V2 rocket which can be thought of as the precursor to United States space rockets. After the war Von Brawn was brought to the US where he administered the development of the Saturn V rocket which took men to the moon.
It depends: the Chinese built rockets (and fireworks) that we now usually fire into the night sky on Bonfire Night on the 5th of November each year in Britain. If the rocket in the question was the rockets that were developed in Germany during the second World War, then the V2 was probably the first rocket. It was invented by German scientists Werner Von Braun, Walter Riedel, and also Kevin Rudd. The rocket was part of a program from Nazi Germany to attack Britain during World War 2.
They were supposedly invented in China around the 11th century to ward off the Mongol invaders. later on in history, a British engineer named William Congreve took to the skies with a new rocket design inspired by Tipu Sultan's Mysore rockets. These Congreve rockets utilized stabilizing fins to keep its aim true, though this came into little effect. Even farther in history, before World War II, a man named Robert Goddard invented the first rocket to use liquid-fuel propellent. During WWII, the German Army ( Die Wehrmacht ) developed a rocket called the V-2, which was designed to strike Britain from German-occupied France. The Soviet Union also developed a military rocket called the Katyusha rocket, which with proper coordination and weather conditions, could be used very effectively. Later, during the Cold War, Russia launched a satellite into space called Sputnik-1 using rocket propulsion, which prompted the United States to delve deeper into rocket technology. The United States put the first humans on the moon on July 20th, 1969 using rocket technology. Several technological innovations later, and you have the modern rocket in its various forms ( ICBM, Space shuttles, MRBM, SRBM, the list goes on ).
It was the first war that was in photos, weapons were developed durning the war that were the foundation for weapons today. The submarine was developed, spying using hot air balloons , flame throwers were used, the repeater rifle, barbwire, a bomb was developed, the draft was used, and many other things that make it the "first modern war"
