In this book, subtitled 'An Occult History of the Second World War,' the author postulates that the Nazis systematically applied techniques of occultism and magic, that they used ‘occult weapons’ as freely as they used ammunition. The author interweaves this thesis with discussion of extra-terrestrial alternative ideas, common at the time of writing (the 1970s), so there are chapters on their use of numerology, astrology, flying saucers, Atlantis, conjuring, drugs, Nostradamus, black masses at Wewelsburg, sinister Tibetan monks, the ‘hollow earth’ theory, prognostication, among others. Long out of print and highly sought after, this book is a speculative history which includes some of the bolder ideas about Nazis and the occult.
