Product Description

Product Description

In the dark dungeons beneath Nazi Germany, teams of occult experts delved into ancient and forbidden lore, searching for lost secrets of power. This book tells the complete history of the Nazi occult programs, from their quests for the Ark of the Covenant, the Spear of Destiny, and the Holy Grail, through their experiments with lycanthrope and zero-point energy. It also includes information on the shadow war fought in the dying days of the Reich as the Nazis deployed strange flying saucers that battled to save their final stronghold in the Antarctic. For years, the Allied governments worked to keep this information from reaching the public, and sought to discredit those few who dared to seek the truth. Now, using a combination of photography and artwork reconstructions, the true story of the most secret battles of World War II can finally be told.

4.0 out of 5 stars fun mix of fact and fiction 25 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An entertaining text that will be very useful for gamers and those generally interested in the occult and the fantastic from alternate realities to the Cthulhu mythos. This book blends legend, myth and reality rather skilfully. As always with Osprey publications, it is very well illustrated, easy to navigate and helpfully explanatory. However, for those of you wanting to find out the facts about National Socialist links to the occult then this volume is not for you. Rather you should see Nicholas Goodrick Clarke's scholarly 'the Occult Roots of Nazism' or perhaps as an introduction, Ken Anderson's useful 'Hitler and the Occult'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Weird science 28 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The occult history of the Third Reich underpinned many aspects of its belief system, and was ultimately culpable in the persecution - and extermination - of millions. While the more esoteric aspects of this history are rooted in hard facts, the internet is full of frankly bonkers theories about UFOs, werewolves and armies of zombie soldiers. Thankfully, this book does not reinforce the appalling revisionist history that surrounds Nazi science, and adds a healthy dose of fantastical speculation to ensure that we are reading fiction, mixed with some fairly unpalatable facts about the regime's obsession with eugenics, racial profiling and all the rest of the theories that have been consigned to the dustbin of history. This is an energetic and entertaining read, and my only criticism is that it doesn't go far enough in implicating the role of Himmler's occult obsession with the holocaust. There is one story missing from the book that would help to rebalance this: the alleged disappearance of a Gestapo agent in the genizah of Prague's Old-New Synagogue while investigating the legend of the Golem. What a righteous conclusion that would have been.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nazi mysticism 4 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed reading this book which seemed to blur fact and fiction. All manner of topics dealing with Nazi occulticism and the supernatural are covered here from the origins of Germanic neo-paganism in the early 1900s to Nazi flying saucers in the final days of the Third Reich in May 1945. Other topics include the zero-point energy of the Hans Kammler 'bell', the Spear of Destiny, Ahnenerbe organisation, Black Sun and Wewelsburg castle, Holy Grail and werewolves, all of which have the typical strand of racial superiority running through it. Really bizarre but fascinating.
