The Hunt for Hitler's Scientists

Today on Far Future Horizons we travel back in time to Europe in the closing months of the Second World War to join the hunt for Hitler’s scientists.

This hunt would also reveal the horrible crimes and the terrible toll in human suffering committed by the Nazis in their mad pursuit of world domination and perverted science.

The British, American, and Russian governments were not content to sit idly by, waiting to be crushed by the advanced technology of the Nazi war machine.

In the closing months of the Second World War covert teams of commandos and spies were sent ahead of the front lines and deep into Germany, hunting for both the weapons and the scientists and engineers who created them.

For British and American operatives, failure was not an option. If they did not capture the Nazi technology and scientists, agents of the burgeoning Soviet Union might and that would spell disaster in a post-war world already feeling the chill of the impending cold war.

Allied agents focused their efforts on three key Nazi technologies: The V-2 Rocket, The Messerschmitt 163 Komet and The Atomic Bomb.

The Hunt for Hitler’s Scientists is available on DVD through in the United States and in the United Kingdom.
