His observations on that one night on that one flight resolve at a stroke some of the most pressing questions and mysteries concerning the end of the war.By the same token, what he saw raises many more mysteries and questions, affording a brief and frightening glimpse into the labyrinthine world of Nazi secret weapons development.Witnesses came forward, and German authors endeavored to come to grips with yet another aspect of the darkest period in their nation's history.Much, if not all, of their work remains ignored in the USA., both by mainstream and by alternative researchers.His observations open a veritable Pandora's box of horrifying research the Third Reich was conducting, research far more horrendous in its scope and terrible promise than mere atomic bombs.More importantly, his observations also raise the disturbing question of why the Allied governments - America in particular - kept so much classified for so long.Those seeking new technical data on these weapons will find some new material here, for the thrust of the book is not on the weapons per se.Rather, the present work seeks a context within Nazi ideology and in some aspects of contemporary theoretical physics for these projects.
I remember that day too, for I was driving with a friend in his van in Manhattan.
What, really, did we recover from the Nazis at the end of the war? To appreciate how badly written a finale it truly is, it is best to begin at the logical place: in Berlin, far below ground, in the last weeks of the war.
There, in the bizarre and surreal world of the Fuhrerbunker, the megalomaniac German dictator huddles with his generals, impervious to the rain of Allied and Soviet bombs that are reducing the once beautiful city of Berlin to piles of rubble.
As a consequence, while the Nazi regime's "image" becomes even more blackened, the image of the victorious Allies also suffers to a great degree.
This book presents not only a radically different history of the race for the bomb, but also outlines a case that Germany was making enormous strides toward acquisition of a whole host of second and third and even fourth generation weapons technologies even more horrific in their destructive power. After all, there have been a wealth of books on World War Two German secret weapons projects and their astonishing results.
