Weird Weapons ~ The Axis

Sänger Amerika Bomber Over New York City

Today on Far Future Horizons we present the first part of a documentary special from the acclaimed History Channel series Modern Marvels. This special looks at the strangest secret weapons ever conceived by both the Axis powers and the Allies during the height of the Second World War.

The Vortex Cannon 

Between 1939 and 1945, the world was locked in a nightmare struggle of unprecedented ferocity. When the smoke from the Second World War cleared, bizarre stories emerged of extraordinary armaments dreamt up by both sides' most inventive minds, weird weapons unlike anything ever conceived of before.

New ways of bringing destruction to the enemy were born of desperation and wild imagination. And in a world gone mad, nothing seemed too strange to try. Axis powers tested a strange range of weapons: vortex cannon designed to tear wings off aircraft, an assault rifle that could shoot round corners, a death ray that could boil people alive, and most bizarre of all, an army in outer space.

Weird Weapons ~ The Axis is available on DVD from Amazon Books.
