Henry Stevens book, "Hitler's Suppressed..", has an interesting premise, but the execution leaves a little to be desired. Essentially the Nazi X-Files. And It falls into that cateogory of books where the author thinks there's government coverups or at least suppression of the full truth, and OK, maybe our various governments have proven quite capable of some quite nasty stuff, but the case here is maybe only partially proven, and the book could have used some better editing. So a bit of a slog. Stevens goes through various Nazi technologies, real or rumored, and through Freedom of Information and other sources, tries to reconstruct what Germany was trying to do late in World War II. Some are well enough documented and considered by mainline historians to have occurred, others are a bit speculative. But the title is clear enough, you know what you are getting into. And it is in the end interesting reading, perhaps not somehting you "should" read, more like that last time when you were over in Germany, and had that last beer, that you really shouldn't have had, but it tasted so good and it seemed like a good idea at the time, but maybe not quite so much the morning after.

Topics include: Kammler Group, German Digital Computers, Flying Discs, Free Energy, Supermetals, Red Mercury, Rail Gun, Death Rays, Super Lubricants, Synthetic Gasoline, V3, etc. ( )
