Stevens' latest and best
on September 28, 2011
I was hoping that this book would be as good as the author's previous two, but I was wrong. It was even better. Stevens is one of the top researchers in the field of hidden Nazi technology, and his two previous books, "Hitler's Flying Saucers," and "Hitler's Suppressed and Still Secret Weapons, Science, and Technology," are must haves in this area, along with Joseph Farrell, Nick Cook, and Igor Witkowski.
This book is written in more detailed fashion than the author's previous books, which were fairly detailed already. He states that this is his last book on this topic, which I hope is not true, as his work is very good and has shed much light on the secret Nazi empire which continues to this day.
Where he departs from Farrell is in his more detailed assessment of the fictions of Wilhelm Landig, which is usually regarded as pro-Nazi hype. Stevens goes to some lengths to show how there is some evidence, although no solid proof, of many of Landig's claims. His analysis is compelling, and there are enough solid bits of evidence to make a reasonable person take notice. The areas of flying machines, atomic research, and submarine development are the main technological arenas focused on in this book. Stevens dishes up quite a bit of solid evidence for technology far in advance of what we are usually told the Nazis developed.
He also goes into quite a bit of depth on Otto Skorzeny, the most visible link between the 3rd Reich and the modern Nazi International. Skorzeny is linked quite openly to current "terrorism," and his movements and activities after the war are covered enough to further shore up Steven's themes in the book.
A must read if you are interested in WW2 history and how it has influenced events which continue to this day.
