In the dark dungeons beneath Nazi Germany, teams of occult experts delved into ancient and forbidden lore, searching for lost secrets of power. Ordered by Hitler to discover new weapons that he could unleash on his enemies, the occultists experimented with dark magics, mystical artifacts, and creatures thought only to exist in nightmare. This book tells the complete history of the Nazi occult programs, from their foundations in Hitler's early esoteric studies and the Nazi quests for the Ark of the Covenant, the Spear of Destiny, and the Holy Grail, through their experiments with lycanthrope and zero-point energy. It also includes sections on the shadow war fought in the dying days of the Reich as the Nazis sought to stave off defeat through pacts with diabolic entities, attempts to save the Fuhrer's brain, and the deployment of the strange flying saucers that battled to save the final Nazi stronghold in the Antarctic.
For years, the Allied governments worked to keep this information from reaching the public, and sought to discredit those few who dared to seek the truth. Now, using a combination of photography and artwork reconstructions, the true story of the most secret battles of World War II can finally be told.

Like many other books in the Osprey Adventure line, this book mixes obscure fact and real-world history with fictitious events. The trick is knowing which is which, the topic is justifiably controversial but certainly interesting and told in a matter of fact account. The book mentions the various paraphysical organizations and the neo-pagan groups that sprouted around the Nazis that tried everything from looking for electrical demi-gods in far north Europe, to searching for the Spear of Destiny, creating werewolves and attempting to ally with Tibetan monks in attempt to contact Yetis.

Just remember much of the book is fiction, after all the follow-up book to this is about Nazis in outer space and having a base on the moon.
