More About the Author

Joseph P. Farrell was born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in 1957, has a B.A. in Biblical Studies and Philosophy, an M.A. in Historical and Theological Studies, and a Ph.D. in Patristics (NOT physics as one of his publishers keeps insisting on saying in spite of his best efforts to get them to change that!). After a lifelong interest in alternative history, science, and a fascination for ancient texts, Joseph started writing in 2001 on these subjects. He also studied pipe organ from the age of six until beginning college, and composes classical music for friends and family. He also plays the harpsichord.

As a World War II buff since I was in grade school (I'm in my forties now), it's very hard to hit a WWII topic in a way I haven't seen before. Farrell has succeeded in spades with Reich of the Black Sun. Using recently declassified documents from multiple countries, he makes a nearly ironclad case that the Nazis did NOT lose the race to the atom bomb, they merely won it so late that it made more sense to use the bomb as a bargaining chip for the postwar freedom of several top Nazis, Martin Bormann chief among them.

I passed a copy of this book to a retired intelligence professional and he said it lined up with many facts that he had learned "behind the curtain." He also said that Farrell's scholarship and thoroughness would have made a welcome addition to any country's intelligence staff. I only withhold five stars because of the plethora of easily correctable typos that should have been fixed in a book that's been out for five years.

Reich of the Black Sun easily earns its place on the bookshelf of any WWII buff.

Farrell asserts that the great secret of WWII, which the victorious Allies and Russia have concealed, is that Nazi Germany had the atom bomb. The author presents his theory as to why it wasn't used - although it was tested in late 1944, according to a documented eyewitness report: it was being developed as a detonator for something FAR more destructive.

He also indicates what this might be, pointing out that 60 scientists working on the latter project were murdered by the Nazis just before the end of the war, it was that important to them to ensure there were no leaks. Farrell alleges that, in their most highly classified wartime secret weapons project, the Nazis were working on esoteric weapons using non-linear physics. This aspect is dealt with in much more detail in the author's sequel "The SS Brotherhood of the Bell", written after he got further declassified documents.

Farrell goes further, explaining why he believes the (allegedly untested) atom bombs dropped on Japan in 1945 by the U.S. were actually German, and offering documentary evidence that the US was so far behind that they did not have enough nuclear material then to put together even one bomb. (Why drop untested atom bombs when the U.S. had by then tested a plutonium bomb? Unless they had been tested...)

It is now well known that Operation Paperclip was the code name for the post-war relocation of many Nazi scientists to the U.S. and at the same time Project Lusty transferred 110,000 TONS of scientific papers to the U.S. In his next book Farrell points out the U.S. was so quickly able to identify and transfer thousands of scientists and specialists that it is clear they were guided by an insider, whom he speculates may have been Bormann, probably the most powerful Nazi of all.

Dr. Farrell (of OXFORD) is I believe honest in his research.

That said, the shear volume of data here cannot all be dead on. It's not possible (but he genuinely tries).

There's a reviewer, some pony-tailed idiot named "John Velonis" who clearly did NOT read the book and then wrote a review about it.

Of all the data in this book, one could not possibly claim to have read and understood any of it, and then harp on one insane detail like Hans Kammler's death. I don't blame Farrell one bit. It's suspect, and I don't think Velonis quoted it correctly. It literally sounds to me like he opened it to a few pages and picked something ridiculous (he is probably a Grade-School teacher who wanted to use the wpord: "INTRIGUING" in a complete sentence).

Decide for yourself. This book is FILLED with historically important and fascinating data that is for the most part I believe, accurate, and obviously genuine in it's research. Go for it, make up your own mind.

Format: Paperback
A most interesting inquiry into the world of secret technology, the birth of the atomb bomb, and UFO's, and their likely Nazi origin.

The book is divided in three parts. At first, the atom bomb is the main subject, and the author convincingly argues that Nazis were the first to have this technology, to have an actual atomic bomb, and the first to have tested it. Evidence is shown for every one of the author's claim.

Then the book focuses on Hans Kammler - a rather intriguing figure - and explains historical facts in a new light. The result of this is that history suddenly makes far more sense with the additional knowledge exposed in this volume (such as Patton's not going for Berlin and going south instead, for no apparent reason, or why the Hiroshima bomb was never tested before it was used, and many other instances).

The research done for this book is excellent, footnotes abound, references too. It's a fascinating read, very serious. The author proposes intelligent arguments and is very clear about what is fact and what is supposition and what is speculation. All of which make for a serious book, despite its subject matter.

The only flaw to this excellent work is the impressive amount of typos. Sometimes I found 6 types within the same page; it's usually a reversal of letters, or an omission of letters. This does disturb the reading as you constantly expect new amazing typos, and they never fail to come. "Operaton", "opration", and the likes are legion and they can easily get on your nerves. I hope this will be fixed in a later edition. I also hope that the author will start using square brackets - [...] - and not regular parentheses when he inserts his own words in quoted passages.
