Nazi Occult War

Nazi Occult War

by Michael FitzGerald
     
 

The Nazis sought to dominate the world not only through conventiona warfare but also through "magical thinking", a belief in the power of Blood and the Soil, the heritage of a mysterious, forgotten past and by sheer force of will.
 
The spurious notion of racial purity was the State ideal, and, to promote and justify this pernicious aim, the Third Reich

Overview

The Nazis sought to dominate the world not only through conventiona warfare but also through "magical thinking", a belief in the power of Blood and the Soil, the heritage of a mysterious, forgotten past and by sheer force of will.
 
The spurious notion of racial purity was the State ideal, and, to promote and justify this pernicious aim, the Third Reich looked beyond orthodox beliefs to establish their own skewed philosophy based on pseudo-science and myth.
 
To this end, they spent more on their "occult bureau" - the Ahnenerbe - than the United States spent on the Manhattan Project to develop the atomic bomb.  Hitler and his henchmen diverted millions of Reichsmarks into efforts to locate the Holy Grail, Atlantis, and the Lost Ark of the Covenant.  How and why they did so is truly fascinating.
