Secrets of the Unified Field: The Philadelphia Experiment, The Nazi Bell, and the Discarded Theory


Alternative history and science researcher Joseph P. Farrell asks this question and comes to some stunning conclusions in this long-awaited sequel to The SS Brotherhood of the Bell. Rejecting the nonsense that has become associated with both projects, and documenting his case solely from scientific sources, newly discovered declassified War Department documents, and eyewitness testimonies, Farrell maintains that both projects originated through careful consideration of Einstein's celebrated (though now discarded)...

Alternative history and science researcher Joseph P. Farrell asks this question and comes to some stunning conclusions in this long-awaited sequel to The SS Brotherhood of the Bell. Rejecting the nonsense that has become associated with both projects, and documenting his case solely from scientific sources, newly discovered declassified War Department documents, and eyewitness testimonies, Farrell maintains that both projects originated through careful consideration of Einstein's celebrated (though now discarded) Unified Field Theory. American and German wartime scientists and engineers determined that, while the theory was incomplete, it could nevertheless be engineered.
