A fascinating illustrated account of a crucial but less well-known aspect of the Third Reich.
The story of the weapons that could have won the war: Nazi flying saucers, the V-1 flying bomb, the V-2 rocket, the V-3 heavy gun, as well as the Nazi nuclear program and much besides.
Under the Nazis, fringe sciences were legitimate areas for research and development. Unorthodox ideas and projects that were too outrageous for other governments received funding. During the last six months of the war, it seemed obvious the Germans had been crushingly defeated, but in spite of the military situation, Hitler continued to believe that victory would be achieved. He repeatedly told his advisors and inner circle that Germany possessed Wunderwaffen-miracle weapons-that would turn the tide and give the Germans victory.
