Nazi Mega Weapons

In the quest for world domination, the Nazis built some of the biggest and deadliest pieces of military hardware and malevolent technology in history. With brilliant but dark minds and a legion of captive labor at their disposal, the Nazis believed the path to ultimate victory was to out-build and out-engineer their enemies.  For Hitler and his army bigger definitely meant better and better meant more lethal.  Hitler’s ordered his engineers and scientists to come up with the means  to realize his master plan.

NAZI MEGA WEAPONS uncovers the engineering secrets of  iconic mega structures, and tells the stories of the evil geniuses that designed them.  It will also reveal how these structures sparked a technological revolution that changed warfare forever.  First up is the ATLANTIC WALL, to protect occupied Europe from an Allied invasion Hitler demanded the construction of a defensive wall stretching thousands of kilometers from France in the south to Norway in the north. This is the story of how this vast engineering project sucked in huge quantities of raw materials and men from all over the Third Reich and faced its ultimate test on D-Day.
