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 foundations in Hitler's early esoteric studies and the Nazi 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 sections on the shadow war fought in the dying days of the Reich as the Nazis sought to stave off defeat through pacts with diabolic entities, attempts to save the Fuhrer's brain, and the deployment of the strange flying saucers that battled to save the final Nazi 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.

Review quote

"The book, as with most Osprey offerings is short but packed with useful information. I highly recommend it for game masters wanting to plumb the depths of Nazi occult activities in a future campaign. There is even a short passage at the end that implies a sequel may be in the works for this book. I truly hope so." -Livingdice.com
