What were Hitler's fabled 'miracle weapons', with which he promised to win the war for Germany at the last gasp? This book resolved the mystery and discusses the factors restraining Hitler from using them in Europe as Nazi Germany disintegrated. Here too is the conclusive evidence of Nazi-Japanese cooperation which convinced the Americans that no alternative existed but to strike pre-emptively against Japan as soon as the atomic bombs were ready. For the first time hard facts are presented suggesting that it was not the United States but Hitler's Third Reich, which built the world's first nuclear reactor. And finally the controversy as to the role played in the Nazi atomic research by the Nobel Prize Winner Professor Werner Heisenberg is settled once and for all.
