Paperback reprint of this popular title. How close did Hitler come to his dream of developing nuclear weapons? What evidence is there for the design, testing and production of such weapons, and their carrier systems? In his efforts to answer these questions, Friedrich Georg has produced a groundbreaking book. Volume 1 describes the efforts of the Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine to design and produce carrier-systems for the nuclear weapons the Third Reich was developing. These included the search for an intercontinental ‘Amerikabomber’, as well as lighter designs, such as the Arado Ar E 555, Messerschmitt P 1107 & 1108, and Junkers EF 132 & 140. The various atom bombs themselves are thoroughly investigated, from the 1-ton to the massive 30-ton variety. Information about the variety of carrier systems being developed by the Kriegsmarine is also provided. Finally, the author investigates the reasons why Germany ultimately failed to produce the atom bomb. Apart from b/w photos and other images, Hitler’s Miracle Weapons Volume 1 features 16 full pages of colour plates, including colour profiles of the various craft described in the text, computer-generated artwork showing these craft ‘in action’, and images of the some of the author’s scratchbuilt models of various weapons systems!
