4.0 out of 5 stars A long slog, but worth it
Like a lot of the readers of this book (I imagine) I came to "The SS Brotherhood of the Bell" after reading Nick Cook's "Hunt for Zero Point", looking to discover more about this fascinating subject.

In a sense I was disappointed - it doesn't offer any genuine hard facts. On the Bell itself it's more of a scrap-book piecing together Cook's and Igor Witkowski's...

3.0 out of 5 stars Nazi anti-gravity technology?, 10 July 2010
This review is from: SS Brotherhood of the Bell: NASA's Nazis, JFK and MAJIC-12: The Nazi's Incredible Secret Technology (Paperback)
In this sequel to "Reich of the Black Sun", the author continues his research into the more exotic weapons the Nazis were working on. This book was due to further declassified wartime Nazi papers obtained later, and also based on superb research by a Polish military researcher published in English as "The Truth about the Wunderwaffe" although Farrell says his own interpretation is more radical and speculative.

Farrell was vague about the groundbreaking research part in his earlier book whereas here he presents evidence that, by the end of WWII, the Nazis had jumped from the scientific level of the 1940s to the 1960s: they had developed the transistor and the integrated circuit (pix are shown), the laser, fibre-optics, and even particle beams and particle accelerators.

Farrell also demonstrates that, by early 1945, the Nazis had a prototype supersonic plane and actually operated an innovative submarine that could travel underwater (not just submerge occasionally) and move twice as fast as the submarines then in use, that could attack while submerged, and was coated with radar absorbent material (submarines of that era had none of these capabilities).

It seems the Nazis were overcome only in the nick of time, especially given their atom bomb, not deployed only because they were waiting for the longer-range new planes to be built to carry such a heavy device. There are also strong indications that the Nazis were working on UFO-related technology. Their most secret project of all, the Bell, may well have been an SS anti-gravity aircraft project that was transferred elsewhere at the end of WWII.

Focusing this time on the now (apparently) discredited non-linear physics initiated by Tesla and subsequently elaborated by Nazi and then Soviet physicists, Farrell explains that this revolutionary type of physics was the basis underlying his three books on the Great Pyramid and the weapon hypothesis ("The Giza Death Star", "The Giza Death Star Deployed", and "The Giza Death Star Destroyed").

Claiming (not unreasonably) that physics as currently taught is a dead end, he discusses "scalar physics" and zero point energy research which may already have been underway for nearly a decade in Germany before the Nazis took over and extended the research. This type of physics has "planet-busting capability...and an endless promise in the fields of energy and propulsion" as well as aspects of quantum mechanics and coherence. Several chapters are devoted to revealing information on suppressed physics. Therefore I passed the relevant chapters to someone with a physics degree who said Farrell tells a good story but so generally that no physicist would be interested. As an example, the scalar physics was covered in a similar manner as say describing the internet as "to do with computers".

The material is wide ranging to the point of seeming unfocused in places, for instance in the author's desire to uncover the many strange connections between the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963; UFOs, which became more frequently sighted from 1947; advanced technology; and the Nazis who appear, even today, to have links in the U.S. to "the Mafia, big business and banking, the military-industrial complex" and major manipulations of the stock market. There's a pointless potted history of Prussia. Instead of just summarising the parts of other books he wants to use in support of his, Farrell adds irrelevant pages expounding on what he disagrees with. And so on.

Overall, the astonishing information and allegations deduced from declassified documents make this book well worth reading but I must deduct 2 stars for the shaky physics which, after all, makes up a quite a large portion but was difficult to get through because not clearly or logically explained. I do object to being lectured on physics by someone who is neither a physicist nor someone who understands it very well at all.

This book, interesting though it was, nearly put me off reading other books by Farrell. Fortunately, "Babylon's Banksters" was already on the pile, as it turned out to be quite fascinating. "The Philosopher's Stone", which I then bought, turned out to be more interesting than this book: not for me, as it was too technical, but for the same person with the physics degree, who actually read most of it and thought it had some good ideas, although atrociously written.

[Later note: Farrell's latest (2011) trilogy "Cosmic War", "Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men" and "The Grid of the Gods" are a sort of a continuation of his earlier works, taking us all further towards an understanding of the "master plan of a hidden e-lite".]

This review is from: SS Brotherhood of the Bell: NASA's Nazis, JFK and MAJIC-12: The Nazi's Incredible Secret Technology (Paperback)
Like a lot of the readers of this book (I imagine) I came to "The SS Brotherhood of the Bell" after reading Nick Cook's "Hunt for Zero Point", looking to discover more about this fascinating subject.

In a sense I was disappointed - it doesn't offer any genuine hard facts. On the Bell itself it's more of a scrap-book piecing together Cook's and Igor Witkowski's (author of "The Truth About the Wunderwaffe") earlier research, combined with some admittedly speculative ideas on the issue.

Also, it is cripplingly slow going for the first 120-or so pages, going into incredible detail about the lead-up the Bell, various theories (some of which are just openly ridiculous) and other lines of related research, many of which feel like dead ends.

However, it does suddenly justify itself after this stage, with some well-weighted insights into the Bell, and a heroically researched whos-who of personnel that evidence suggests may have been involved. It all builds up into a genuinely coherent document, pleasingly so. It definitely earns its place as a must-read on the Bell.

Will there ever be a definitive expose into this subject? I doubt it, but what is out there currently - including this book - offers a tantalising taste of what may well have been one of the weirdest episodes of human history.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hard going, poorly laid out, terribly written and dubious source material, 11 May 2010

This review is from: SS Brotherhood of the Bell: NASA's Nazis, JFK and MAJIC-12: The Nazi's Incredible Secret Technology (Paperback)
Having read Nick Cooks "Hunt for Zero Point" I was keen to find out more about the possibility that the Nazis had been developing technology that was way beyond anything that the allies had possessed in the latter stages of the war, and why the Americans had been so keen to get to the Sudetenland before the Soviets (and indeed why the Germans had been so keen to defend it). "The SS Brotherhood of the Bell" seem like the next logical step. The book does indeed raise some intriguing possibilities, but the more you go into it, the more you realise that there are holes in the research and claims that the author makes that you could fly a Ju390 through...

For example, the supposed Ohrdruf A-bomb test - the author claims that certain evidence points to the fact that the Nazis tested a small A-bomb near Ohrdruf in Thuringia, in late 1945. Now whilst conventional history shows that a) there was a slave labour camp at Ohrdruf, and b) the Nazis were pursuing nuclear technology at the time, centered on the Ohrdruf area, further research shows that no-one else makes these claims and no-one even offers a vague reference to it. Of course, the author would probably point out that this is due to the global conspiracy and the efforts of the "Nazi International" to cover it up - but then of course there could be a the much simpler explanation that it never took place at all.

Then there's the claims about the development of West German "scalar" weapons during the Cold War and that in the late 1980s, using this technology, the Germans caused several "significant" earthquakes within the rapidly disintegrating Soviet Union as a warning to the Soviet/Russian government not to interfere in the process of reunification. A quick scan of the USGS and other seismological agencies show that in actual fact there were no earthquakes above a 5.0 within the Soviet Union between 1952 and 1995 - well after German reunification.

Add into the mix the flights of fantasy that creep in towards the end (aliens living on the dark side of the moon, planning an invasion of earth in 2030? Come on, do me a favour...) and the whole thing just adds up to a nonsensical mish-mash that raises more questions than it tries to answer, and not necessarily about the subject matter.

In addition, the layout of the book is poor; there's a constant referal to footnotes, some of which occupy more of the page than the narrative; in places, it seems to be little more than a rehash of the author's previous work, "Reich of the Black Sun"; the copy is badly edited; and the "scientific" sections require a doctorate in theoretical astrophsyics to understand.

There is no doubt that the Nazis were in possession of some highly advance electronics, explosive, military and nuclear technology even in the early stages of the war, and to be honest we should be thankful that some of these technologies were never brought to bear or else we would have really been in trouble. But Farrells work does nothing to further our understanding of these technologies, instead prefering to veer off into the realms of fantasy, conspiracy and speculation.

Overall an intriguing work but poorly presented and open to all sort of ridicule. I would only have given it one star but for the fact that it may lead me to more reliable work which I'm sure are out there. If the Nazis and the aliens haven't suppressed it between them that is...

4.0 out of 5 stars An adventure that entertains and postulates questions, 1 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am still not completely sure how I would assess the material presented in this book but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. It had all the elements of a good adventure story - Nazis, strange technologies, different perspectives on history etc. I treated it as a book to escape into and so was happy with it.

Again the facts/fiction need to be looked at yes I think there is a lot of truth in the book, but there is also some not so pure/true staements, one has to take this book with a "bit o salt". bits rtrue/flase

3.0 out of 5 stars The bell rings slightly off tune, 17 April 2013

I liked this but would have liked it to stay focused more on the possible physics of the bell and its implications rather than fragmenting into JFK assassination theory and a revisit to Roswell. Worth a read.

This review is from: SS Brotherhood of the Bell: NASA's Nazis, JFK and MAJIC-12: The Nazi's Incredible Secret Technology (Paperback)
I give this book 3 stars because of it's entertainment value.

It is a highly amusing presentation that obviously is not intended to be taken seriously!
The author builds speculation upon speculation and arrives at speculated 'conclusions' throughout. An example of the type of approach taken is as follows: "According to [some author], An informant, with top secret knowledge of the matter, told a journalist xyz".

Oh and the "facts" about "The bell" also explain the JFK assassination!

This review is from: SS Brotherhood of the Bell: NASA's Nazis, JFK and MAJIC-12: The Nazi's Incredible Secret Technology (Paperback)
Subtitled The Nazi's Incredible Secret Technology this book follows "Reich of the Black Sun" and expands upon Farrell's ideas regarding how the world has been controlled by a hidden Nazi hierarchy since the end of the Second World War. He postulates that this control was planned for prior to 1942 and it made little difference whether Germany won or lost because the top Nazis ensured their survival. Brotherhood builds upon evidence released by the Freedom of Information Acts in Europe and the USA, and previous works in the same field by Farrell and other authors.

One of the points Farrell makes a lot of, which has been sanitised from accepted history, is that the Nazis were on the brink of victory even after the supposed debacle of the Battle of the Bulge. The reason behind this, apparently, doomed offensive was to gain a launch site within reach of London for atomic missiles. There are published reports of a massive test explosion of an atomic blast including the heat flash and mushroom cloud in occupied Eastern Europe. Even then the Nazis were only months away from bigger rockets that would reach the American east coast. Farrell states that this is why Patton sent his armies to the Skoda works at Pilsen in Czechoslovakia while another allied thrust was towards the SS installations in the Hartz Mountains of Thuringia. Why did they not concentrate on Berlin if the war was all but won?

A major part of the first section is about there being two space programmes, one for public consumption and the actual missions. Having read that astronauts on Apollo missions were shadowed by flying disks during the flight and saw craft actually resting on the Moon surface makes more sense if an Earthly origin is considered. Farrell agrees with most people that Americans landed on the Moon but that some of the photos were staged and it is the staged photos from the "official" space programme that have given the conspiracy theorists ammunition. Remember Roswell and Kenneth Arnold?

Some things I did not know were that the Germans used television cameras to broadcast the 1936 Olympic Games from Berlin to selected receivers in Germany and that they had miniaturised the technology so it could be used in guided missiles. In my mind it is more likely that American scientists would be able to reverse engineer advanced Nazi technology than alien technology. Imagine taking a Bluray disk back in time 40 years and giving it to a scientist. He may be able to work out there is data encoded in the line but would be unable to develop either the hardware or software to decode it and turn it into a surround sound feature film. According to official history, at that time lasers were a solution looking for a problem and transistors were the state of the art as far as electronics went.

The book is about much more than the Bell and relates in detail, with documented sources, why Farrell thinks there is a hidden Nazi organisation which is controlling and directing the major governments and suppressing certain technology. We are frequently told about what an innovative genius Nicolai Tesla was but where is his technology today, particularly research into anti-gravity? If I have any criticism, it is that Farrell is not above quoting a source several times at length to support his point. Once again he puts forward a cogent and well supported theory which is believable and very frightening.
