Antarctica - the Ice Reich

'Third Reich - Operation UFO Nazi Base in Antarctica'

For the first time, the legendary 2006 Russian documentary 'Third Reich - Operation UFO Nazi Base in Antarctica' in its entirety, fully translated into English and available for free viewing.

The film explores the historical mysteries and rumours of a Nazi secret base in Antarctica, the 1947 flying saucer attack on Admiral Byrd's ill-fated 'Operation Highjump' expedition.

The occult origins of Third Reich anti-gravity engines, flying discs and ancient Atlantean technologies viewed through the lens of perhaps the three most mysterious twentieth century German organisations of all: "Thule Society", "Vril Society" and "Ahnenerbe".

One of the core themes of the film is the alleged existence of "Base 211", the legendary underground Nazi base in the Antarctica.

Drawing upon the pre-war Nazi interest in Antarctica:

  • the creation of "New Swabia"
  • the testimony of German U-Boat submarine commanders
  • the alleged disappearance of thousands of Nazi scientists and engineers at the end of the war, not accounted for by Vatican and Odessa "Rat Lines" or American "Operation Paperclip" activities.

In addition, the film analyses the actual geo-physical possibilities of an underground base in Antarctica.

The other core theme is the alleged existence of a Nazi flying saucer program and the many evidential strands that this area generates.

From the supposed channeling of extra-terrestrial engineering schematics by members of the German occult group "Thule Society" in the early part of the twentieth century to the "implosion engine" of Viktor Schauberger and its possible appropriation by the Third Reich.

Bringing us to the the latter part of the twentieth century the documentary illustrates the many sightings of unknown crafts around the Antartic region and the theoretical basis for polar wormholes as entrance and exit points for visiting extra-terrestrial spaceships and the possible involvement of HAARP, as well as asking why nearly all American Antarctic bases seem to be populated by agents of the National Security Agency and CIA.

Like the study of any phenomena and/or events that exist at the edges of consensus reality, occupy imaginal realms and are subject to historical revisionism; the interface of myth and reality is a shifting mosaic of fact, speculation, disinformation and fantasy, or to use the phrase of head CIA counter-Intelligence spook, James Jesus Angleton, a "wilderness of mirrors".

Certainly there are elements in the documentary that give cause for concern such as the alleged "Special Bureau 13", the Nazi secret flying saucer research group and its similarity to the top secret government agency in the early eighties role playing game "Bureau 13: Stalking the Night Fantastic".

 ​For years rumours had been flying round that the Germans had been fully aware of the foo-fighter phenomenon and that they had a special study group formed to look into the problem under the name of "Project Uranus", backed by a shadowy group by the name of "Sonderbüro 13" [reminds you of "Majestic 12" doesn't it?].

This was first detailed in "La Livres Noir De Soucupes Volantes" [The Black Book of Flying Sauers - 1970] by French Ufologist Henry Durrant. The rumour spread in Europe and eventually took physical form in the English language in Tim Good's acclaimed book "Above Top Secret "where it is used to help substantiate further vague rumours of an Anglo/American foo-fighter study.

Good had not checked his facts and had in fact just copied the information direct from Durrant's book. When I checked this out with Durrant he informed me that the whole "Project Uranus" affair was a hoax which he had inserted in his book precisely to see who would copy it without checking. The hoax apparently had been revealed in France some years before but hadn't percolated its way through to English speaking Uffologists. Perhaps other foo hoaxes await discovery.

-- Andy Roberts, "In search of Foo-Fighters"

Likewise, there is the lack of information on the existence of the US Navy destroyer 'Murdoch' in the testimony recounted by pilot 'John Sireson' in his description of the flying saucer attack on Admiral Byrd's fleet [testimony taken from an interview by the late pioneering American researcher Leonard Stringfield].  

Equally, the testimony of Admiral Byrd that flying saucers attacked the 'Operation Highjump' fleet is of historical record as is his testimony to Congress of enemies that have the ability to fly "pole to pole". Likewise, the creation of 'New Swabia' is as much a historical fact as the "impossible" existence of the "Piri Reis" map.

What sets this documentary apart from most others of its kind is the inclusion of high ranking Russian scientists and military personnel and their testimony should not be discounted.

As the great American anti-fascist researcher Dave Emory says of many elements of deep politics: "it's food for thought and grounds for further research".

It took a lot of hard work to make the translation of this documentary into English and create the subtitles and we would like to dedicate our work to the late American researcher Wendelle Stevens who is quoted in the film, In our opinion, Wendelle, who sadly died in 2011 was one of the few genuine professional researchers in the UFO community who like Linda Moulton Howe, actually went and spoke to the subjects and witnesses and researched cases first-hand.

After the Soviet collapse in 1991, the KGB released previously classified files that cast light on the mysterious Byrd led Naval expedition to Antarctica.

A 2006 Russian documentary, recently translated, made public for the first time a 1947 secret Soviet Intelligence report commissioned by Josef Stalin of Task 68's mission to Antarctica.

The Intelligence report, gathered from Soviet spies embedded in the US, revealed that the US Navy had sent the military expedition to find and destroy a hidden Nazi base.

On the way, they encountered a mysterious UFO force that attacked the military expedition destroying several ships and a significant number of planes.

Indeed, Operation Highjump had suffered "many casualties" as stated in initial press reports from Chile. 

While there is a possibility the report resulted from US disinformation fed to a known Soviet mole, the more likely explanation is that the report exposes the first known historical incident involving a battle between US naval forces and an unknown UFO force stationed near Antarctica.

It is a historical fact that Nazi Germany devoted significant resources to the exploration of Antarctica, and established a pre-war presence there with its first mission in the Antarctic summer of 1938/1939.

According to a statement by Grand Admiral Dönitz in 1943, "...the German submarine fleet is proud of having built for the Führer, in another part of the world, a Shangri-La land, an impregnable fortress".

Was the fortress was in Antarctica,  built by the Nazis, or discovered there?

After the defeat of Nazi Germany, according various sources, elite Nazi scientists and leaders escaped to this impregnable fortress by U-Boats, two of which experienced difficulties and surrendered in Argentina.

In the Soviet Intelligence report, never before known testimony by two US Navy servicemen with Operation Highjump was revealed.

A recent article in "New Dawn" by Frank Joseph gives a detailed analysis of the two eyewitness accounts, only the latter of which was mentioned in the 2006 Russian documentary.

John P. Szehwach, a radioman stationed on the 'USS Brownson', gave testimony of how UFOs appeared dramatically out of the ocean depths.

On 17 January 1947 at 0700 hours, Szehwach said:

"I and my shipmates in the pilot house port side observed for several minutes the bright lights that ascended about 45 degrees into the sky very quickly. We couldn't i.d. the lights, because our radar was limited to 250 miles in a straight line."

Over the next several weeks, according to the Soviet report, the UFOs flew close over the US naval flotilla which fired on the UFOs which did retaliate with deadly effects.

According to Lieutenant John Sayerson, a flying boat pilot:

"The thing shot vertically out of the water at tremendous velocity, as though pursued by the devil, and flew between the masts [of the ship] at such a high speed that the radio antenna oscillated back and forth in its turbulence.

"An aircraft [Martin flying-boat] from the Currituck that took off just a few moments later was struck with an unknown type of ray from the object, and almost instantly crashed into the sea near our vessel.

"About ten miles away, the torpedo-boat 'Maddox' burst into flames and began to sink. Having personally witnessed this attack by the object that flew out of the sea, all I can say is, it was frightening."

There is a major problem with Sayerson's quote.

There has been no torpedo boat named 'Maddox' in the US Navy. In the Russian documentary, the incident described by Sayerson [misspelt Sireson] refers instead to the destroyer 'Murdoch'.

There was, however, no destroyer named 'Murdoch' active in the US Fleet in 1947. Instead there was a destroyer named 'Maddox'. [DD-731], but it did not serve in Operation Highjump. In fact, the 'USS Maddox' was the destroyer fired upon in the Gulf of Tonkin incident of 1964.

According to Frank Joseph the "USS Maddox' was, either a torpedo boat, or torpedo-carrying destroyer.

He goes on to explain what may have happened to the 'Maddox' mentioned in the Soviet report:

"A 'USS Maddox' was indeed sunk by enemy action, but five years earlier by a German dive-bomber during the Allied invasion of Sicily. Actually there were at least three American destroyers known by that name [DD-168, DD-622 and DD-731] all of them contemporaneous".

The US Navy has long been notorious for falsifying the identity of its ships and re-writing their histories if they embarrass official policy. So too, the 'Maddox' cited by Soviet espionage was similarly consigned to an official memory hole.

If Joseph is correct, then it is very possible that a 'USS Maddox' was destroyed during Operation Highjump, and the US Navy changed official records to hide this.

An alternative explanation is that the 1947 Soviet report contained U.S. orchestrated disinformation that was being conveyed to Soviet authorities by a Soviet mole known by the US intelligence community. Though plausible, this is highly unlikely given that the US and USSR were still allies at the time of Operation Highjump, and had a common interest in finding and destroying any hidden Nazi base[s] in the South Atlantic.

The destructive technology used by the UFOs in the Soviet Intelligence report was not something that had been developed by the defeated Nazis who had only shortly before been forced to retreat to the South Atlantic. It appears the UFOs were not intent on destroying Task Force 68, but forcing it to turn back.

Were the UFOs protecting the retreating Nazis and/or their own presence in Antarctica? Was the Stalin era report disinformation deliberately fed to Soviet authorities by US Intelligence?

What is the most likely answer is that the Soviet era report released in the 2006 Russian Documentary was substantially correct.

This suggests that Admiral Byrd's initial press report was accurate - a new enemy that could fly from pole to pole at "incredible speeds" had emerged. Most importantly, the UFO force had inflicted heavy casualties on the US Navy that was powerless to oppose it. 

In 1947, the prestigious Chilean newspaper "El Mercurio" carried an article from its correspondent Lee van Atta aboard the support ship 'Mount Olympus'. The title of the article was: 'Admiral Richard E Byrd refers to the Strategic Importance of the Poles'.. 

It has often been alleged that this item never appeared and is fiction, but now  the cutting in question has been found, and so it exists.

In the past it has often been misquoted in translation by occult enthusiasts, the usual interpolation in the text being "flying objects" having the ability "to fly from pole to pole at incredible speeds".

The article reads in true translation as follows:

"Admiral Byrd declared today that it was imperative for the United States to initiate immediate defence measures against the possible invasion of the country by hostile aircraft operating from the polar regions.  

He stated: - 'I don't want to frighten anyone unduly but it is a bitter reality that in the case of a new war, the continental United States will be attacked by aircraft flying in from one or both poles'. 

As regards the recently terminated expedition, Byrd said that the most important result of the observations and discoveries made is the current potential effect which they will have on the security of the United States."

"El Mercurio" is a conservative Chilean newspaper with editions in Valparaiso and Santiago. No other newspaper appears to have carried this report.

English Translation of the Article

Admiral Richard E. Byrd warned today that the United States should adopt measures of protection against the possibility of an invasion of the country by hostile planes coming from the polar regions. The Admiral explained that he was not trying to scare anyone, but the cruel reality is that in case of a new war, the United States could be attacked by planes flying over one or both poles.

This statement was made as part of a recapitulation of his own polar experience, in an exclusive interview with International News Service. Talking about the recently completed expedition, Byrd said that the most important result of his observations and discoveries is the potential effect that they have in relation to the security of the United States. 

The fantastic speed with which the world is shrinking – recalled the Admiral – is one of the most important lessons learned during his recent Antarctic exploration. I have to warn my compatriots that the time has ended when we were able to take refuge in our isolation and rely on the certainty that the distances, the oceans, and the poles were a guarantee of safety.

-- Michael S. Heiser, "The Portent"

Between Germany and America in 1914 and again in 1939 stood Great Britain and the USSR, France, Poland, and other countries of Europe. Because the technique of destruction had not progressed to its present peak, these nations had to be eliminated and the Atlantic Ocean crossed by ships before our factories could be brought within the range of the enemy guns. At the close of the German war in Europe they were just on the outer fringes of the range of fire from an enemy in Europe.

Göring stated after his capture that it was a certainty the eastern American cities would have been under rocket bombardment had Germany remained undefeated for two more years.

The first attacks would have started much sooner.

The technique of war has brought the United States, its homes and factories into the front line of world conflict. They escaped destructive bombardment in the Second World War. They would not in a third..

-- George C. Marshall. 'Biennial Report of the Chief of Staff of the Army to the Secretary of War' [1 July 1943 to 30 June 1945]

The members of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Russian Generals endorsed the view openly on television in the 2006 Russian documentary 'Third Reich - Operation UFO Nazi Base in Antarctica' that the Germans set themselves back up at the South Pole to continue the Reich and prepare their eventual military comeback.

The official US Navy documentary on 'Operation Highjump' is a masterpiece of double-talk and pretending everything went smoothly, although the US Navy armada returned to base after just two months of the six-month "military expedition" that Admiral Byrd had announced to the whole US media at a filmed press conference.

The following was written by a Russian:

In the year 1947 the US Navy lost 68 sailors and officers and the destroyer 'Murdock'. The aircraft carrier 'Philippine Sea' of the Casablanca class lost 50% of its deck-based aircraft. The expedition figured on a six-month duration, but on 26 February 1947, it retreated in panic after spending only two months in Antarctica.

Before a hearing of the Congress of the United States Admiral Byrd stated that he was attacked by flying Nazi discs moving at incredible speeds. It should be noted that this operation was entirely a military one. Thirteen military [heavy] warships, an aircraft carrier of the Casablanca class named the 'Philippine Sea', with its Corsair fighter planes, and a U.S. war submarine with combat weapons.

The “Philippine Sea” on its return to base, was in for capital repairs, the workers noting lots of leaks and damage as if the ship had been in battle.

Interesting facts:

  • 1On his return to base, Admiral Byrd found that his plane had burned enough aviation fuel for 2,750 “extra” kilometers.
  • Another eyewitness to the battle that occurred on 26 February 1947 was a 'Highjump' expedition member and an experienced military pilot named John Sayerson .
  • On 25-26 February 1947, there was an extraordinary event in New York State. A giant explosion in the northern part of New York. 56 people were killed ["The New York Times"]. Witnesses claimed that it was a rocket crash of an FAU-2 [V2].
  • The fashion model agency 'Gloria' [in Argentina and other Latin American countries] recruited women between 1947-1952 [estimated at between 8,000 and up to 30,000 attractive young women], never seen again after being "employed".
  • A ship named 'Astarte' under the flag of the Dominican Republic picked up 2,000 girls from Rio de Janeiro, which has millions of white Germans, Italians, Poles, etc. and they were never seen again.
  • The 'Astarte' also never stopped at any other ports.
  • Russian found maps in 1945 in captured Berlin in the Tiergarten [Berlin Zoo area], at the address Tirpitzufer 38-42, of the sea depths for passage under the ice of Antarctica to Agharta.

Only an A-class submarine could do this, from the Sonderkonvoi [Special convoy] of the Führer [38 submarines!]. . Maps of the underwater passage under the ice of Antarctica to “Agharta” were carefully encrypted and given to the NKVD and the later KGB. [The highest Soviet leadership thereby knew about the existence of Agharta].

6) There are now three HAARP installations: a) in the USA [Alaska], b) in Greenland , and c) in Norway .

7) the American polar station 'Amundsen-Scott' is the one station most nearly located to the opening [portal] into the hollow earth. .

Virtually all employees of the polar stations are members of the secret services of the U.S. government. All scientists were replaced by security officers in the 1960-70 decades after a series of mysterious disappearances of polar scientists or their deaths.

It can be stated with a fair degree of certainty that after the war members of the Reich retreated to their South Pole base. But what has become of them since?

The idea that thousands of young women of European origin were secretly transported to the Pole region is a plausible one and would make a lot of sense to propagating the Aryan race on Antarctica but unfortunately there is no verification of this in the text. If there were this would be the absolute proof that there is still now a Third Reich on Antarctica, though Admiral Dönitz’s comments too lend credibility.

The Russian documentary also states that around 100 submarines vanished along with thousands of scientists. It must be very hard for the Intelligentsia in Russia to accept that Germany was not pursuing a world domination strategy and did indeed have very high technology in development. After all they [the Russians] have a terrible war record to keep hidden so it does not serve their purposes to ever accept that there was anything noble about what the Germans were trying to achieve, although there is no actual statement on it. 

In the end and as usual with these "official" documentaries it never answers the questions it poses but rather seeks to confuse us even more. As such, apart from showing us what the Germans actually did achieve, it does not bring the argument of the current existence of the Third Reich along at all. Its story needs to be reorganized and properly referenced; the two primary proofs are the U.S. expedition of 1947 and the missing submarines.

Did the Third Reich have high-performance flying saucers before the war ended, or, to put it another way, if the war really ended. The theory is that the NS regime sent a contingent of them, whatever was in development or in pitifully low-quantity production in a nation being bombed nearly back to the Stone Age by the US Air Force and the Royal Air Force, and of U-Boats as well to a secret Antarctic base after 1945.

Something did happen down at the Antarctic after World War Two seemingly ended, and seems worthy of consideration, especially after what Admiral Richard Byrd and scientists at the Russian Academy of Sciences said, two sources which are not at all "pro-Nazi".

Beginning in 1938, long before the end of the Second World War, the Germans commenced sending out numerous exploratory missions to the 'Queen Maud' region of Antarctica.

A steady stream of German expeditions used ports in then white-ruled South Africa.

Over 230,000 square miles of the frozen continent were mapped from the air, and the Germans discovered vast regions that were surprisingly free of ice, as well as warm water lakes and cave inlets.

One vast ice cave within the glacier was reportedly found to extend 30 miles to a large hot-water geothermal lake deep below.

Meanwhile, a crew was prepared and scheduled by the German Society of Polar Research. This society also made the sensational step to invite Richard E. Byrd, the most famous American Antarctic researcher. On the mid of November 1938 he arrived in Hamburg and showed the crew and a clearly selected publicity of 84 persons his new Antarctic documentation movie in the Urania Cinema of Hamburg. Byrd, who had flown across the South Pole as the first human in 1929, was already at this time a living legend, a national hero to Americans and most polar researchers.

The 'Neuschwabenland' left the port of Hamburg on 17 December 1938 heading to the Antarctic on a precisely planned and determined route and reached the ice on 19 January 1939. The following weeks on 15 flights the ‘Passat’ and the ‘Boreas’ flew across some 600.000 square kilometres and, with their specially designed Zeiss 'Reihenmessbildkamera RMK 38', made more than 11,000 pictures of the area.

The old Norwegian maps from 1931 of these areas were renewed, for they proved to be inaccurate. Nearly one fifth of the whole Antarctic area was scanned this way, documented for the first time and simultaneously declared to be German territory. To emphasize this claim to the outside world, the two planes ejected several thousand drop-flags, special metal poles with the expedition’s insignia on them and the German Reich’s Swastika. The whole territory now received the still valid name: 'Neuschwabenland' [New Swabia], referring to the south German region of Swabia [the capital of which is Stuttgart, home of Mercedes and Porsche].

Some newer historians reduce the discovered area to an amount of 325.000 square kilometers. These numbers can not be trusted, there are copies of the original flight maps, revealing the number 600.000 in ancient letters. What could be the reason to reduce this number?

Most parts of Neuschwabenland were renamed according to the Antarctic treaty in 1957: ie. 'Queen Maud Land', '‘Princess Martha Coast', 'Princess Astrid Coast'. On  older maps one will still find the original names. Yet, even today  many of the mountains in the northern Antarctic area still carry German names like: 'Mühlig-Hoffman Mountains', 'Wohltat Mountains', etc. 

Whole fleets of submarines of the XXI and XXIII series later headed towards Neuschwabenland. Today about one hundred German submarines are still unaccounted for, some equipped with the Walther Schnorchel, a device that allowed them to stay submerged for several weeks, and it can be assumed that they fled to Neuschwabenland with the dismantled flying disks or at least the construction plans.

Again it must be assumed that since the test flights were successful some so-called flying saucers flew directly there at the end of the war.

Perhaps some may think these assumptions to be a bit on the daring side, but there are strong indications that it may well have happened that way.

'Operation Highjump' was the largest expedition ever mounted to the Antarctic. Was it meant to wipe out the Third Reich’s presence?

'Operation Highjump', officially titled 'The United States Navy Antarctic Developments Program, 1946-47', was a United States Navy operation organized [coincidentally?] by Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd in Antarctica under the command of Richard Cruzen. It was launched on 26 August 1946 and ended abruptly in late February 1947, six months earlier than planned. The massive Antarctic task force included 4,700 men, 13 ships, and multiple aircraft. The official stated claims of the operation were as follows:

  • to train personnel and test material in the frigid zones
  • to consolidate and extend American sovereignty over the largest practical area of the Antarctic continent
  • to determine the feasibility of establishing and maintaining bases in the Antarctic and to investigate possible base sites
  • to develop techniques for establishing and maintaining air bases on the ice, with particular attention to the later applicability of such techniques to operations in the interior of Greenland [where, it was then believed, physical and climatic conditions resembled those in Antarctica]
  • to expand existing knowledge of hydrographic, geographic, geological, meteorological and electromagnetic conditions in the area.

However, the choice of ships and fleet size is extremely suspicious. The actual fleet included the following ships: 

Eastern Group 

Seaplane Tender 'Pine Island' 
Tanker 'Canisteo' 
Destroyer 'Brownson' 

Western Group 

Seaplane Tender 'Currituck' 
Tanker 'Cacapon' 
Destroyer 'Henderson' 

Central Group Troop 

Command ship 'Mount Olympus' 
Icebreaker 'Burton Island' 
Icebreaker 'Northwind' 
Supplyship 'Yancey' 
Supplyship 'Merrick' 
Submarine 'Sennet' 

The aircraft carrier 'USS Philippine Sea' also participated, although it was not assigned to any of the groups. Understandably the need for supply ships, seaplane tenders, ice breakers and communication ships are necessary for such an operation but the use of two destroyers, an aircraft carrier and a submarine is somewhat dubious if all they set out to do is carry out surveys. Were they expecting penguins firing artillery?

'Operation Highjump' has become a topic among UFO conspiracy theorists, who claim it was a covert US military operation to conquer alleged secret underground Nazi facilities in Antarctica including Station 211 and capture the German V7 flying discs, or Thule mercury-powered spaceship prototypes

When considered in the context that several German U-Boats, a large amount of building supplies and German scientists identified by 'Operation Paperclip' were still unaccounted for, this adds credibility to the possibility of a Nazi base and a real motive for the subsequent operation.

'Operation Highjump' remains one of the few postwar operations with documents still classified by the military.

In 1948, a second task force named Operation Windmill was also sent to take photographs of Neuschwabenland, again supposedly for mapping purposes.

Although they apparently succeeded in their task, the government has yet to make these photos available to the public and no reason has ever been given for their non-disclosure.

Some believe that the reason the photos have never been released is that this military operation was actually a reconnaissance and recovery mission.

In 1949 Secretary of Defense James Forrestal, a close friend of Admiral Byrd, was sent to stay at Bethesda Naval Hospital. 

He began to discuss Operation Highjump with the hospital staff, talking wildly about UFOs, Atlantis, and an underground Nazi city. He was denied visitors, including his wife, and shortly afterwards "fell" out of his hospital window to his death.

The official report said that he committed suicide but persistent rumors say that he was murdered by government agents to keep him from talking further about what was really found in the Antarctica wilderness during Operation Highjump.

The Germans explored the Queen Maud Land coast from 19 January to 15 February 1939 and returned home on 11 April 1939.

Two German follow-up expeditions had been planned for the Antarctic summers of 1940 and 1941 but were canceled when war broke out in September 1939. The main publicly stated objective of the expedition was to find a site for a German whaling station, whale oil being at that time the most important raw material for the production of margarine, soap and other products. By so doing, the German government hoped to avoid the situation then existing in the South Atlantic whereby the UK asserted the right to impose high fees and restrictions on whaling concessions. 

Although the Germans did not mention the possibility of establishing a permanent Antarctic station to investigate the feasibility of exploiting other natural Antarctic raw materials in the future, including petroleum, they did want to document and reinforce any future territorial claim on a piece of Antarctica before other nations had gobbled up the entire continent. It is also quite possible that they would also have sought to establish refueling stations on islands en route to Antarctica from Europe to ensure safer navigation between the two continents. In wartime, such islands could also be used to provide sheltered anchorage for commerce raiders, supply ships, communications stations and the like. 

"The extent of aerial photography was unprecedented for the time. In seven survey flights totaling 10,000 km in length, more than 350,000 km2 of previously unknown territory around the Greenwich Meridian was mapped and more than 600,000 km2 between 110 30’W longitude and 200 E longitude were measured". 

-- Hermann, Ernst, "Deutsche Forscher im Südpolarmeer: Bericht von der Deutschen Antarktischen Expedition, 1938-1939", Safari Publisher, 1941

Of the scientists who participated in the expedition four were meteorologists, one a biologist, an oceanographer, a geophysicist and a geographer. In one study that fired the imagination of many subsequent speculative writers, the geographer Ernst Hermann correctly surmised that a rift zone ran through the middle of the Atlantic Ocean [the Mid-Atlantic Ridge] in a line of weakness in the Earth’s crust passing through Jan Mayen, the Azores, Ascension, Tristan da Cunha and Bouvetoya.

He further believed that the line, heated geothermally by volcanic emanations from within the Earth, continued south to cross Queen Maud Land [the site of New Swabia] and thence through the ice-free lakes of the Schirmacher Oasis to connect with Mount Erebus on the other side of Antarctica.

This rift zone, which corresponded nicely with Alfred Wegener’s theory of continental drift, separated the Eurasian from the North American Plate in the North Atlantic and the African from the South American Plate in the South Atlantic.

Moreover, Hermann’s research helped explain Dr. Wilhelm Filchner’s theory made during the German expedition of 1911 that there may actually be two Antarctic continents formed by an arm of the sea running from the Weddell Sea to the Bay of Whales, splitting the continent in half. It took very little time for the speculative writers to assume the existence of deep-sea, warm-water “tunnels” through which U-Boats could navigate safely to and under Antarctica.

Map done by the famed Tyrolean cartographer and artist Heinrich C. Berann
for the National Geographic Society beginning in 1966.

It clearly shows the continent of Antarctica without its cover of ice,
with underwater passageways that run nearly the entire length of the continent.

A huge rift exists between the southern Atlantic and the southern Pacific and runs straight through Antarctica, and runs directly under Neu -Schwabenland
This is where U-Boats could hide deep underneath the southern polar ice.

Soon after the German expedition returned home, President Roosevelt, without any reference to the German endeavor, established the U.S. Antarctic Service, appointing Admiral Byrd as Commanding Officer.

Previous to the establishment of the Antarctic Service, expeditions to the polar regions had been privately funded.

Byrd was forthwith commissioned to organize and execute an expedition to Antarctica in the period 1939-41, the main purpose of which was to determine the feasibility of maintaining a base year round and to chart a specific coastal area. Two ships, the 'USS Bear' and the 'USMS North Star', carrying a total of 125 men, and four aircraft departed in November 1939, arriving in the Bay of Whales in mid January 1940. In 1943, while the Blitz of London was still raging and before the Allies could even hope to invade the Continent, the British Admiralty and Colonial Office undertook a secret military operation, called 'Operation Tabarin', to establish a permanent British presence in the Antarctic. This action, little known outside of the UK, is presumed to have been in reaction to the German Antarctic expedition. The target of British ambition was the Falkland Islands, which had already been claimed by both Argentina and Chile as the Malvinas Islands.

The timing of the operation, i.e., when the British home islands were themselves threatened, suggests an urgency for the mission that precludes any other explanation.

During this operation British personnel from 'HMS Carnarvon Castle' hauled down the Argentine flag from Deception Island and raised the Union flag in its stead. British bases were established at Port Lockroy on the coast of Graham Land and at Hope Bay on Trinity Peninsula. When the war ended in 1945, the islands were handed over to the British Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey and in 1982 became the cause of war between Britain and Argentina in which the United States violated its own Monroe Doctrine by aiding the British. Final ownership of the Falklands is still being contested. 

Months after the war in Europe had ended incidents occurred that further suggested continuing Nazi activities in New Swabia. On 10 July 1945 German submarine U-530, a Type IXC/40 boat captained by Otto Wermuth, anchored in Mar del Plata, Argentina. Then, on 17 August 1945, U-977, a type VIIC submarine, anchored as well at Mar del Plata. When interrogated, Capt. Heinz Schäffer reported his boat had transited from Kristiansand, Norway, in a continuous submerged Snorkel-assisted passage lasting 66 days. Argentine officials took the crews and boats into custody and reported their presence to U.S. authorities. Eventually, both boats and crews were turned over to U.S. officials for additional questioning. The Argentine authorities have maintained that no other individuals or cargo than those officially reported had been put ashore from U-977. U.S. interrogators, apparently unsatisfied, repeatedly asked crew members what cargo they had off-landed in Mar del Plata and where they had hidden Adolf Hitler.

When the U.S. Navy report on the U-977 was released it made no mention of the 66-day submerged voyage.

According to the U.S. Navy report, U-977 had stopped in the Cape Verde Islands for a break en route, and then completed the trip traveling on the surface using one engine arriving in Mar del Plata after 99 days at sea.

Historians tend to discount the U.S. Navy report and accept Capt. Schäffer’s report as the more accurate version. After the interrogations were completed and the U-boats thoroughly examined, the men were returned to Europe and the submarines destroyed in torpedo-firing exercises in the north Atlantic. In the mid 1990s, with rumors of Argentine complicity in harboring and otherwise assisting Nazis fleeing Allied “justice,” i.e., the hangman, still persisting, the Argentine government set up CEANA [Comisión Para el Esclarecimiento de las Actividades del Nazismo en la Argentina], an investigative group consisting of impartial historians and other, including Jewish, reputable individuals, to ascertain the truth about the extent of Nazi infiltration and of any contraband cargo brought in by submarines. The CEANA Commission was granted full access to the state archives of Argentina, the United States, Great Britain, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, France, Belgium and Portugal.

The researchers, with the concurrence of the Jewish members, found that in fact only about 65 Germans, who could be considered war criminals, had entered Argentina.

Of course a great many ordinary Germans also migrated to Argentina seeking new lives in the New World, just as tens of thousands of Soviet Jews were welcomed in the United States. 

Those speculative writers [L. Szabo, C. Friedrich, J.P. Farrell, J. Robert et al.] who insist that Nazi installations and personnel, including Hitler and some of his associates, existed for years in New Swabia after the war, conjecture that submarine convoys traveling along deep, warm-water tunnels could have supplied them. They also refer to statements Adm. Dönitz is said to have made at the Nuremberg Tribunal: 

"The German submarine fleet is proud of having built for the Führer, in another part of the world, a Shangri- La on land, an impregnable fortress—an invulnerable fortress, a paradise-like oasis in the middle of eternal ice". 

The Israeli writer and former Mossad agent Michael Bar-Zohar in his book "The Avengers" widely publicized this quote, writing: 

"In March 1945 a detailed report was circulated in the U.S. State Department, which read: 'The Nazi regime has exact plans for the continuation of their plans and doctrine after the war. Some of these plans have already been put into effect'.

After the war, however, Dönitz denied ever having made the statement in the first place. 

In December 1946, the British announced that a joint British and Norwegian expedition was operating in the south polar waters of Marguerite Bay. Admiral Byrd was said to be assisting in the work. Eight other nations, including the USSR, were also reported to be researching in the Antarctic. Immediately after World War II, the United States, no doubt prompted by an awakened awareness of the strength and ambitions of the USSR and possibly by rumors surrounding military aspects of the German Antarctic expedition, took a sudden great interest in the geopolitical, strategic, and economic potentials of the polar regions. 

In the fall and winter of 1945-46 the U.S. Navy, to test the performance of men and equipment under extreme cold conditions, undertook its first polar expedition, called Operation Frostbite, in the Davis Straits off the coast of Greenland. The expedition employed the aircraft carrier 'USS Midway' and a few escorts. 'Operation Nanook' in the Canadian Arctic and Greenland followed shortly after. Both operations were preparatory for a major U.S. operation to the Antarctic. Authorized and organized by Secretary of Defense James Forrestal and Adm. Chester Nimitz, with Rear Adm. Richard Byrd, acting as officer in charge of the project and Rear Admiral Richard Cruzen commanding Task Force 68, 'Operation Highjump' got under way on 26 August 1946. Strictly a military operation, Highjump comprised 4,700 men, 33 aircraft on 13 ships, two seaplane groups, icebreaker 'Northwind', the submarine 'Sennet' and the aircraft carrier 'Philippine Sea'. Did the Operation include the submarine 'Sennet' to explore alleged warm-water tunnel passages? 

U.S. naval units arriving in the Antarctic from the United States were divided into three groups: the Central Group was stationed in the vicinity of Little America Base IV located on the Ross Ice Shelf; Eastern Group consisting of three ships rendezvoused at Peter Island 900 W; and Western Group also consisting of three ships proceeded to the Balleny Islands at 1630E. Upon command from Central Group, Western Group, located off to one side of Central Group, proceeded westward along the Antarctica coast toward the Prime Meridian. At the same time Eastern Group, situated to the other side of Central Group, headed eastward toward the Prime Meridian. When the two groups met at the Prime Meridian they were located right off the coast from Queen Maud Land. The site of New Swabia. Coincidence or planned? 

Summerhayes and Beeching in their otherwise excellent article insist that the convergence of USN ships just off New Swabia was not a deliberate maneuver in order to search out and destroy all vestiges of the Nazi expedition. They write: 

"The idea that the expedition was planned to attack a supposed German base in Queen Maud Land is wholly without foundation. Quotations attributed to Admiral Byrd suggesting anything to the contrary have been invented".

-- Colin Summerhayes and Peter Beeching. 'Hitler’s Antarctic Base: the Myth and the Reality', "Polar Record", 43 (224), 2007

However, German author Heinz Schön, who is not considered a speculative writer, insists just as firmly that, 'this encirclement of a continent, as Byrd expressed it, attacked the target from three fronts'.

-- Schön, Heinz, "Mythos New-Schwabenland: für Hitler am Südpol: die Deutsche Antarktisexpedition 1938-39", Selent: Bonus Publisher, 2004

The initial stated purpose of Operation Highjump was to consolidate and extend U.S. sovereignty over the largest practicable area of the Antarctic continent and to establish the Little America IV Base. This was later denied, and the prime purpose was then said to be to train personnel and test equipment under extreme polar conditions. Unofficially, it was rumored that the real purpose of the operation was to destroy New Swabia. Indeed, Highjump had made extensive use of airborne magnetometers in search operations. Ironically, it was to be Adm. Byrd, who had been invited to join the German operation 10 years earlier, who was now charged to destroy Neuschwabenland, including secret Nazi Antarctic Base 211, if indeed they ever existed. 

Although much publicity was given to the operation in general, specific findings were nonetheless kept at the confidential level, thereby limiting access to the records. Adm. Byrd himself is said to have initiated the 'Nazis in Antarctica' scare. "El Mercurio", a Chilean periodical, reported the following: 

"Adm. Richard E. Byrd warned today [5 March 1947] that the United States should adopt measures of protection against the possibility of an invasion of the country by hostile planes coming from the polar regions . . . in a new war the United States could be attacked by planes flying over one or both poles. . . . Byrd said that the most important result of his observations and discoveries is the potential effect that they have in relation to the security of the United States. . . ."

Those skeptical investigators who insist that, despite repeated clashes with British and American forces, the Nazi base in New Swabia continued in operation for some years and only went silent during the 1958 International Geophysical Year after the United States secretly dropped three nuclear bombs over the area. However incredible this may seem, the United States now admits that indeed it secretly did explode three such bombs over the South Atlantic Ocean during 'Operation Argus' on 27 August, 30 August and 6 September 1958 without reporting the tests until a year later. The "New York Times" first reported the atmospheric bursts on 19 March 1959; the full results and documentation of the tests were not declassified until 30 April 1982. 

Approximately 1,500 men on nine ships [Task Force 88] participated in Operation Argus, whose main purpose, U.S. authorities report, was to demonstrate the validity of the Christofilos theory, i.e., to prove the artificial creation of an electron shell derived from neutron and fission-decay products and ionization of device materials in the upper atmosphere. The tests—which authorities insist had absolutely nothing to do with the existence, real or imaginary, of a Nazi base in Antarctica— had to be kept secret because of the forthcoming bans on atmospheric and exo-atmospheric testing. Moreover, the authorities say, the tests had been conducted far distant [over 1,200 miles] from Queen Maud Land. Again and again the responsible authorities in both the UK and the United States, by failing to give accurate and full information about their own activities in the Antarctic on the grounds that divulging such information would endanger national security, have provided speculative writers the opportunity to imagine for themselves what actually could have happened. 

Because the 1938 German Antarctic expedition had neither the time nor the means, it may be assumed with 99% certainty that the Nazis did not establish a base. There were never any flesh-and-blood Nazis based in New Swabia, nor were there ever submarine pens or flying saucer launch pads. The imagined ghosts of Nazis sufficed to spook the UK and the United States. It is much more likely that the bold German undertaking in 1938 awakened the "Anglo-American empire" to the strategic and potential economic value of Antarctica and the need to secure a piece of the pie. As this episode shows, it is nonetheless important that investigative writers question the 'official' version of important events. In this instance, because of the frenzied U.S. and UK military activities in Antarctica after the German expedition and the unreliability of official information, the skeptics and questioners were almost challenged to invent their own narratives. There could, after all, be cases in which the official version of a historical event—for reasons of state —is accidentally or deliberately incorrect, and skeptics are needed to ferret out the truth. Just months after the German expedition arrived home, the UK declared war on Germany. During the war the tough old aircraft-carrying 'Schwabenland' served Germany again as a long-range reconnaissance asset until torpedoed in Oslo-Sandvik on 7 February 1945. 

Daniel W. Michaels was for over 40 years a translator of Russian and German texts for the Department of Defense, the last 20 years of which [1972-1993], he was with the Naval Maritime Intelligence Center. He is a frequent contributor of articles to geographical and historical periodicals. Born in New York City, he now lives in the D.C. area.

The 2012 TBR article by Daniel Michaels on New Swabia contains excellent facts, just an illogical conclusion, especially his final pronouncement — "It may be assumed with 99% certainty that the Nazis did not establish a base [in the Antarctic]".

The entire article not only strongly suggests the opposite but hints that neither Michaels, an Naval Intelligence man, nor his old employer, the Department of Defense, believe in this conclusion.

Among the facts that Michaels’ own article adduces which rather contradict this verdict:

– 'Operation Highjump' [1946-47], which was organized to "explore" the Antarctic, was a totally military expedition decreed at the highest levels [ordered by Defense Secretary James Forrestal, planned by the Chief of Naval Operations, Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz, and carried out by an American hero, Admiral Richard Byrd]. It involved 4,700 men, 33 aircraft, 13 ships, two seaplane groups, an icebreaker, a submarine and an aircraft carrier [the 'USS Midway]

Clearly the US Navy was terrified of aggressive penguins [perhaps German-speaking?]

– The “Highjump” task force converged from three directions exactly on New Swabia, where the Reich had a base in 1938-39…

– in 1958 the U.S. military dropped three atomic bombs on the Antarctic [as part of a “physics experiment,” of course…]

–the name of the 1958 task force which returned to the scene, consisting of 1,500 military personnel and nine ships, was "Task Force 88".

At this stage the humor in the choice of the number “88” should be obvious to everyone. [The numbers 88 in numerology mean the letters HH, which means “Heil Hitler.” Lest anyone think there are no occult types at the Pentagon, D-Day occurred at 6 am on the 6th day of the 6th month of 1944, and 44 is a multiple of 11…and we had 9/11, the John Kennedy murder on 11/22, and on and on].

Maybe the Mr. Michaels simply does not want to be bumped off, so he pro forma defanged, at the end, the thrust of his entire article. If he is still alive and un-bumped off, his ploy worked.

For those seriously interested in the momentous topic of whether the Reich survived the war as an operating force, one should consult the ten books by Joseph Farrell, Ph.D.[Oxford] on the massive survival of the Third Reich in the postwar period [though he focuses more on South America]. For Farrell, National Socialism now lives on as a financial, high-tech and nuclear-weapons network. The Reich is now, ironically, like the Jews before 1948, a racial, monetary and ideological network — with feared agents everywhere, but a country nowhere — so it is still quite handicapped.

There is a similar account circulated by the distinctly pro-Nazi novelist Wilhelm Landig in his 1971 novel "Götzen gegen Thule", a novel he billed as "full of realities" [voller Wirklichkeiten], of a large German base in the Canadian Arctic, near the magnetic North pole.

As if that were not enough, Landig maintains that these aircraft were not equipped with normal machine guns or cannon for their defensive weaponry, but utilized a "Metallstrahl", essentially an electromagnetic "rail gun" used to propel tiny pellets with extreme velocity, a kind of hyper-velocity shotgun that would more than rip apart any Allied aircraft, and do so at great distances.

Magnetofunk and Himmelskompass and Point 103 

The Magnetofunk and Himmelscompass were passive defenses used by the Germans in conjunction with their secret arctic base, which Wilhelm Landig calls "Point 103". To gain some understanding of these devices it is necessary to discuss this base but to do that we must digress even further to include the Nazi post-war writer Wilhelm Landig and one of his detractors. In 1993 Joscellyn Godwin published "Arktos The Polar Myth in Science, Symbolism, And Nazi Survival". Godwin summarizes Landig's contribution as best as possible in six pages. Godwin's point in this summarization was to paint Landig's attempt to air the Nazi point of view as Godwin puts it: "Götzen gegen Thule is in one sense a massive work of revisionism, or, to put it plainly, of whitewashing the Nazis". 1

Godwin is part of a time-tested tradition. He cites and uses the work of known Nazis, but, to do so and to get his work published, he must mumble an anti-Nazi formula as penitence. The effect is to discredit Landig. Unfortunately, because of the language barrier, this has become the "accepted party line" view of Landig in the English-speaking world. Wilhelm Landig died in 1997. Since then we have learned that he was in the SS and was in charge of security at the Prague Airport, the site were the Habermohl saucer lifted off. 2 In all probability, he oversaw, on at least one occasion, not only the Habermohl model, but the Schriever and Miethe designs as well. Landig was a responsible person within the security structure of the 3rd Reich and probably came across many other items of interest during his duty, which he passes along to us in his writing. 

After the war, Landig wrote three novels describing things and events that went on in the war and immediately afterward. He prefaces these works by telling the reader these are novels full of realities. This was "code" because in the post-war world of Germany and Austria one was not allowed to state in fact what Landig stated in "fiction". One of these "facts" was Point 103. Point 103 was a secret German base somewhere in the Arctic. Landig tells us it was in Canada but, in fact, it could have been most anywhere. Point 103 was a military base in every sense of the word in "Götzen". It had hangars, runways, housing, storage facilities, shops, laboratories, and maintenance facilities, all contained in huge caverns blasted from the Arctic rock.

One main function of Point 103 was to serve as a weather station since northern storms move from the West before arriving in Europe and accurate weather forecasting on the part of the Germans for their military operations could help mitigate Allied air superiority. The Battle of the Bulge is a great example of how the Germans used bad weather to their advantage. 

This base was always sought out by Allied aircraft. Landig tells us that this base survived this aerial onslaught and survived the war. In fact, Landig's story picks up at Point 103 after the war has ended. It is the technology that allowed this base to survive which is the topic. These devices, according to Landig, were the 'Magnetofunk' and the 'Himmelskompass'. The magnetic north pole, the 'North' of compasses, is not as close to the geographical North Pole as one would imagine. It is located near 70 degrees of North Latitude, near 90 degrees West Longitude, on the Boothis Peninsula in the Northwest Territories of Canada. 

"Funk" in German has to do with our word "radio". Therefore, Magnetofunk is magnetic and delivered by radio waves. The job of the Magnetofunk was to deflect the magnetic lines of force in the instruments of Allied aircraft ever so slightly. Over the vast tracks of the Arctic, this slight deflection was designed to steer the search aircraft safely around Point 103. 3 But if the magnetic compasses of the Allied aircraft were altered, how would it be prevented from confusing the compasses of the Germans? How would the base ever be resupplied, for instance? The answer is the other device under consideration, the Himmelskompas or heavenly compass. This compass did not use the magnetic north pole to orient itself but oriented itself using the position of the sun instead. This compass was so sensitive to sunlight that it could even function in twilight or if the sun was below the horizon. The explanation given is that a portion of the sunlight striking the earth is polarized. This effect is said to be strengthened by the focused magnetic field in the region of the poles. This polarized light was measured and a position relative to the pole fixed. 4 Its ability to function below the horizon is based on its ability to register polarized light which would only appear above the horizon. Not only could this light be used for directional purposes but it could also be used to indicate the aircraft's attitude from the horizontal. This horizonal ability may be the cause of some confusion in its name. So, Landig claims that through use of these two devices the German polar base's secret location was kept from the Allies while its exact position was known to the Germans. 

Is this a fairy tale as Godwin implies? Is there any proof? Nobody has ever found Point 103, or, if they have, this information has been kept from us. Nobody has ever come up with a Magnetofunk as far as is known. But there is independent evidence that the Himmelskompass did exist. And the evidence comes from United States Intelligence documents. These two references are brief and rather cryptic as are many such documents. They are more interested in identifying the devices to be studied without divulging classified details to the casual reader. Remember, the United States military already had plenty of horizon devices which were mounted in the cockpits of aircraft and indicated to the pilot the degree of level flight of the aircraft. Therefore, we are not discussing the usual cockpit horizon device in these reports. The first report comes from a prisoner of war, Kurt Kreutzfeld, involved in German high technology. In the report in question he also discussed German glide bombs, rocketry, devices for projectile direction, as well as microfilmed SS technology. He describes an "Artificial horizon" as: "A self regulating artificial horizon for use in aircraft was invented by Dr. Knappstein, who had a factory in Berlin - Schöneberg. He worked in collaboration with Henschel, Berlin-Könswusterhausen. The horizon was not affected by any acrobatic maneuvers". 5 

The second document is strange indeed. It is a two-page extract of a certain Lt. Newton's diary, copied and sent to a Col. Deyarmond on 6/21/45 by Col. D.L. Putt, Director of Technical Services. This was a month and a half after the war in Europe ended. The first entry concerned communications problems in forwarding an 'engine' to Wright-Patterson AFB and how to avoid such problems in the future. The second entry describes the lack of qualified technical people involved in the 'V-1' project (the American investigation) and how it would be great to find qualified Germans to explain it all. The third entry is the shortest and most cryptic: "1174-Restricted-9 June 1945 Subject: "Mother Horizon" Request received from Technical Data for one 'Mother Horizon', as the German's call it. It's a remotely indicating gyro horizon device. Equipment Laboratory seems to be the interested agency." 6  

Incidently, the US military spent huge amounts of time, money and manpower in the years following the war in secret missions, flying over the Arctic. This is no secret now since we have the testimony of Col. Wendele Stevens who took part in these operations while serving in the USAF. In these operations, B-29 bombers were outfitted with the latest electromagnetic sensing gear and flown all over the American and Canadian Arctic allegedly looking for "flying saucers". According to Wendele, when they were sighted, they were filmed and the film and recorded measurements were spirited way to Washington D.C. Nothing was ever heard of them afterward. It may be no coincidence that something like this was the method used to track down German weather stations during the war. It is also even possible that the origin of these post-war, artic flying saucers was this base or others like it.

-- Henry Stevens, "Hitler's Suppressed and Still-Secret Weapons, Science and Technology"

All of these allegations would remain merely fanciful if it were not for the discovery by American UFOlogist William Lyne - himself definitely outside the 'mainstream' of the UFOlogy community - of a piece of German equipment that, quite literally, he bought at a second-hand store in White Sands, New Mexico!

6 January 1994 "Albuquerque Journal North" article featuring William Lyne and His Mysterious Nazi Compass

Lyne is the author of a rather extraordinary book of Ufology - a field  in which in which the extraordinary seems to be the norm - called "Space Aliens from the Pentagon", the main theme of which is his adamant insistence that UFOs are entirely terrestrial and man-made,and being used to advance a fictitious "alien agenda" 
and psychological operations campaign. 

Lyne, notwithstanding the more often than not unbelievable aspects of his book, was, in addition to Wendelle C. Stevens, one of the few UFOlogists to take the Nazi origins myth of UFOs seriously prior to the publication of Nick Cook's "The Hunt for Zero Point" 

The unusual thing about this piece of equipment was not only its circular central Swastika - a clear reference to the occult Thule Gesellschaft since that version of the Swastika appeared on its emblem - but also its designation as a Peiltochterkompass, a "daughter compass".

Investigating this strange piece of equipment further, Lyne concluded that it was no ordinary compass, since it appeared not to operate by any magnetic means, which might explain how it ended up in White Sands, New Mexico! Lyne and his mysterious compass even became the subject of an article in a local American newspaper.

Why is Lyne's find so important to the allegations of Nazi bases in the Canadian Arctic that were being supplied by long range aircraft?

Very simple.

If there were ever any truth to the allegations of German bases in these heavily forested regions, then normal magnetic compasses would be of virtually no use for navigation purposes in the region, since standard compasses are notoriously inaccurate at the polar regions with solar energy cascading down and causing local disruptions of the magnetic field.

Some other method, therefore, had to be found to orient aircraft for safe navigation. Wilhelm Landig alleges that this was done by means of a compass that oriented itself to the sun by reading polarized light, rather than magnetic field lines. Lyne therefore seems to have found some version of this compass in an area of America known for its secret research laboratories some twenty years or so after Landig's surreal allegations first appeared!

But according to Landig there is even more to consider, for according to him the German base in the Canadian Arctic was actively researching and developing so-called "free energy" devices, devices that would tap the so-called "zero point energy" of quantum mechanics.

In this connection, the research was allegedly carried out under the auspices of the SS Entwicklungstelle IV, or SS "Developmental Installation IV," an entity, if it existed at all, that would have fallen under the mission brief and jurisdiction of Kammler's SS Sonderkommando, for it was responsible for "research into making Germany independent of foreign energy sources."

So with Landig's fantastic allegations, we come full circle back to the exotic energy sources, the technologies, the occult, and the SS research being conducted by Nazi Germany.

To summarize the accumulated allegations and evidences:

Fact: The Germans undertook an expedition to Antarctica whose hidden purpose was clearly military in nature, since one cannot imagine the likes of Reichsmarschall Göring sponsoring an expedition for any other purpose

Fact: The United States on two separate occasions over the wide time-frame of eleven to twelve years undertook two large military expeditions to that continent, both under appropriate cover stories for mapping (the 1947 Byrd expedition, Operation Highjump, and for the 1957-58 Geophysical Years (to study the effects of atomic blasts on Antarctic weather!)

Fact: Admiral Byrd, the leader of the first American expedition, was recorded in a South American newspaper as warning of "enemy" aircraft capable of violating American airspace with ease, and of flying form pole to pole with tremendous speed

Fact: The German Navy showed great interest in the "free-energy" ideas and coils of Hans Coler, for the ostensible purpose of creating a means of submarine propulsion that would allow German U-boats to stay submerged more or less indefinitely

Fact: Admiral Byrd's diaries and logs from his expedition are still classified

Fact: Coler's inventions were highly classified by the German Navy, and later by the British, who only declassified them over thirty years after the war's end

Fact: The Germans had also apparently contrived a sophisticated compass for possible use in polar regions by aircraft, and possibly by other less conventional aircraft

Fact: the alleged time span of the German Antarctic base's survival is coincident with "'golden age" of the UFO, from the Arnold sightings, the Roswell Crash, up to and beyond the great 1950s Washington DC UFO flap

Fact: SS General Dr. Ing. Hans Kammler had assumed total control of all the Third Reich's secret weapons research by the end of the war, a position which would have made him privy to the German Navy's research

Fact: It is evident from the movements of General Patton's divisions in the closing days of the European war that Kammler's SS secret weapons empire was the deliberate, and principal, target of these military operations

Allegation: Grand Admiral Dönitz on more than one occasion alluded to the role of the German U-Boat fleet in the construction of secret bases in polar regions

Allegation: These bases were staffed by SS troops, and presumably technicians conducting ongoing secret research into "zero point energy" or "free energy"

Allegation: Said research fell under an SS entity called S-IV, recalling Kammler's S-III

Allegation: These bases were said to be defended by exotic types of weaponry, including electromagnetic "rail guns" to devices that could interfere with and halt standard electrical engine ignitions systems

Allegation: There were secret SS teams working on "areas of physics" even more exotic than atomic and thermonuclear energy

Allegation: There is a connection to Nazi occult interests in the polar regions via the myth of the pre-war occult Thule Society [Thulegesellschaft]

Fact: The highest levels of the SS were initiates into Himmler's occult inner circle at Wewelsburg, making it likely that Kammler himself was such an initiate

Fact: The 1944 German atom bomb test at Rügen took place at a location with its own occult pedigree and significance for the pre-war Germanic, and very occult, Order of the New Templars

What emerges from this list is disturbing indeed. Clearly, a prima facie case can be made that the Nazi leadership had invested significant resources in the investigation of any and all avenues to power, occult and otherwise, and to new sources of energy.

And equally clearly, the Nazi leadership was willing to think "outside the box" and to go to any lengths - often quite literally - to research those matters.

What also emerges from this list is a preoccupation with areas of physics, and areas of the globe, almost completely neglected - at least publicly - by the wartime Allies.

Moreover, what also emerges is a disturbing sense, that maybe, just maybe, there was something to the survival myths after all, for one thing seems clear from the pattern of events after the war, particularly in respect to Antarctica:

Such myths were inevitably connected to the exotic research pursuits the Germans were conducting, and such myths seem clearly to have been the hidden motivation for American counter-strikes.

Aerospace researcher and writer, William R. Lyne, who had a Top Secret clearance in Air Force Intelligence, says we need not look to space for the origins of flying saucers. Residing in New Mexico for over 30 years, where he has developed Intelligence contacts at Los Alamos, the secret facility where much of this country's most classified military research is being conducted, he has seen several formations of flying saucers and has concluded that the UFO crash at Roswell was an elaborate government disinformation hoax meant to convince the American public that these objects are interplanetary... when in fact they are manufactured right here on earth.

Ever heard of the concept of Free Energy? What the term means is the ability to generate more energy than was expended to create that energy in the first place. Or, in other words, to create powerful, usable energy virtually out of nothing. According to Einstein's theory of relativity, it should be literally impossible to do so.

Lyne doesn't let something like Einstein stand in his way as he recounts the history of maverick inventor Nikola Tesla's pioneering efforts to create just the kind of Free Energy device capable of powering the man-made flying saucers Lyne believes the Nazis operated before, during and after World War II.

As Lyne says, when Tesla offered his new experimental technology to the U.S. government, they turned him down flat, believing he was quite insane. It was at that point that the Germans sent in a covert operative to cultivate Tesla's friendship and bring Tesla's device to the aid of the Nazi military.

An excerpt from the book, "Space Aliens from the Pentagon"
Subtitle - "Flying Saucers Are Man-Made Machines"

My book is related to the following list of little-known, officially suppressed or publically unknown facts:

  1. An American citizen [naturalized], Nikola Tesla [an atheist and a capitalist], invented the flying saucer, before 1900, and reduced it to practice by 1915.
  2. The American government helped the Nazis steal the invention from Tesla [who hated the Nazis], and by 1937, the Nazis were secretly developing it at Los Alamos, New Mexico [then called the "p2" project], under the direction of the Baron Wernher von Braun, who also collaborated in rocket research with Dr. Robert Goddard at Roswell, funded by the American Rocket Society [The Smithsonian Institution and the Guggenheim Foundation].
  3. The American government later helped Wernher von Braun, the Nazis, and the Trilateral Commission and Illuminati [who still retain control] remove the "KT-p2" Projekt [KT" is for "Kreisel-Teller" German, for "Gyrating Plate"] and "p2" is the electronic designation for an "oscillating electromagnetic dipole"] to Germany, after 1937.
  4.  The Nazis, who attempted to develop and use the flying saucer during the war [called "Foo-Fighters" by us, "Fireballs" and "Flying Turtles" by them], were unsuccessful in developing appropriate weapons for it until too late, and finally traded it back to us during the stalemate of 1945, in exchange for amnesty for numerous persons [including many war criminals], and for other concessions and guarantees [many of which are too numerous or incredible to mention here].
  5.  The U.S. government [N.S.A., O.S.I.], on behalf of the Trilateral Commission, continues with and enforces a Nazi-originated "Big Lie" program, in which it perpetuates the hoax that flying saucers [U.FO.s] are: (a) Extraterrestrial in origin; (b) psychological phenomena ["collective consciousness archetypal images", ala C. G. Jung]; (c) swamp gas; (d) "free-floating plasmas"; (e) piezo-electric effects; (f) ball-lightning; (g) other natural phenomena; (h) unknown life forms; (i) hallucinations; (j) non-existent; (k) hoaxes by attention-seekers; (l) the products of hysteria, insanity, etc., etc.
  6.  The German navy surrounded the U.S. with 24 U-Boats, armed with [V-6?] I.C.B.M.s, having celestial guidance systems, and armed with neutron bomb warheads, trained on key American cities and centers, in a 1945 stalemate; German Admiral Karl Dönitz negotiated a secret truce and amnesty agreement with American authorities, under which he was required to order all 24 U-Boats "...scuttled, with all hands on board...", under the agreement, pursuant to which Nazi skippers opened the hatches and the subs and all men on board went to the bottom. Under Operation Paperclip, all Nazi scientific research materials, most of their important scientists, and the "KT-p2 Projekt" technology, were transferred to the U.S. and to the Trilateral Commission corporations, thus attempting to insure that the Illuminati would retain control of the materials. Certain unusual security procedures were initiated to insure this, including the "sacrificing" of some major German scientists to the Soviets, to plant misinformation, and to insure that the hoax was successful.
  7. During the war, German scientists bypassed development of the "atom bomb", and built and tested the neutron bomb. German field Marshall Erwin Rommel and the Afrika Korps were originally sent to North Africa to test the neutron bomb, as well as Tesla's "death ray" [which freezes whole armies]; this technology was acquired by American corporations, held chiefly by David Rockefeller, and was later sold in part back to the U.S. government and tested in the '60s, and the same technology was again sold to the U.S. government again in the '70s and '80s, as "Star Wars".
  8. Over 15,000 German military, technical, Intelligence, and support personnel were brought to America [mostly New Mexico-Manzano Base, Sandia Base, White Sands Missile Range, Alamogordo, Holloman A.F.B., Los Alamos, etc.] with the "KT-p2" project, in September 1945, at which time, under Operation Paper Clip, Wernher von Braun became Director of Research, U.S. Army Ordnance, Ft. Bliss, Texas; he and his 116 top rocket scientists commenced rocket [and flying saucer] R.& D. at nearby White Sands Missile Range, and Alamogordo.
  9.  Howard Hughes "Glomar Explorer" was built to retrieve the 24 scuttled German U-Boats, before terrorists or unfriendly governments found and retrieved the subs, missiles, bombs, and related technology, and because the WW II German U-Boats were powered by a type of magnetic-electric generator [invented by an American named Dort of Virginia] which was superior to nuclear power. Further details about the German "ship", the 'Graf Zeppelin' are included in this book.
  10. Adolf and Eva [Braun] Hitler were daringly rescued from the Berlin Bunker by flying saucer, piloted by test pilot Hanna Reitsch and long distance flight expert Hans Ulrch Rudel. The couple were later protected by the secret amnesty agreement, lived their remaining lives under protection of the N.A.T.O. alliance, in Kassel, Germany, ironically the home of an international monument to the Holocaust. The Hitlers even visited America on the invitation of L.B.J. to visit "Hemisfair", the World's fair at San Antonio, Texas, in 1967.
  11.  Part of the original deceit was under way at Wright-Patterson A.F.B., Ohio, even before the German surrender; Edgar Cayce was already employed as a technical writer, to revise, adapt, and resume the propaganda work pioneered by Hans Hörbiger, Hitler's personal guru and astrologer, the official "father of parapsycholgy", and designer of the Nazi "Big Lie" system, in which the public's "credibility window" is wallowed into a giant hole, allowing the indiscriminate acceptance of faceless authority and whatever the government says; the U.S. government even hired an Ohio naval law professor [and genius] to revise and popularize "Astara" ["Ostara" to Hitler], the Nazi religion based on the Bonpas [Tibetan black magic] religion, imported from Tibet to Germany by general Karl Haushofer, an ordained Bonpas priest, as the basis for the S.S., financed and setup on instructions of the British-American CFR, in 1919; the S.S. Bonpas worshipped "Kali Ma" [Bloody Mother]. This cult founded the ancient Thugee cult of India, and was the basis for the Society of Assassins; the concepts of this weird religion related to the mass extermination of people, through many means, including assassinations, exterminations, and war; and the basis for all 20th century totalitarian movements.
  12. Most forms of mass communication are primarily controlled or produced by the Illuminati, through the secret agencies of our government, to brain wash the public, in the most monumental hoax in history, to socio-economically control the world, and to perpetuate lies designed to obscure the flying saucer's man-made origin and use [as well as to steal and conceal or monolithically control all other advanced technology]; the government hires consultants, contract script writers, and teams of Ph.D.s, to create and disseminate "Big Lie" Propaganda, in countless pulp magazines and newspapers, and finances and produces books and movies of the "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" ilk, to perpetuate the "extraterrestrial" myth; the government controls and manipulates the press, hires lecturers, and organizes and funds UFO groups; the government stages "abductions", using actors, drugs, and sets; "Operation Blue Book" was set up at Wright-Patterson A.F.B. to retrieve leaked information and plug leaks, disseminate misinformation, falsely represent "expert, objective, scientific opinion", and to ferret out 'problem people'; mystical organizations [such as A.R.E.- "Association for Research and Enlightenment"]- part of the Edgar Cayce Foundation, of Virginia Beach, Virginia [conveniently close to the C.I.A. headquarters])- are created for the same purposes, and set the stage for the type of mass psychological control of the public required for totalitarian control by mystical cults, such as "Communism", "Naziism", "Synergy", or "psychic" cults.
  13. Flying saucers operate on basic, simple, sound [but very carefully obscured] scientific electrical and physical principles, known for over 100 years; Sir George Clerk Maxwell's famous equations were 'edited' to remove certain information from 'unclassified' access, and all public sources were thoroughly scoured by the F.B.I. in 1942; the flying saucer used the electromagnetic interaction [which is on a magnitude of "10/40 (10 to the 40th power) x 2" times greater than the gravitational interaction], to move huge saucers at fantastic speeds in defiance to gravity and inertia, with almost no net energy consumption; flying saucers can be powered by unlimited electrical energy extracted from ordinary atmospheric air, based on Tesla's ca. 1900 discoveries; [NOTE: this book tells how to build your own flying saucer].
  14. ."E.S.P." and "psychic phenomena" movements [based on Hans Hörbiger's original Nazi "parapsychology"] are orchestrated and promoted by the N.S.A., as part of the continuation of the original Nazi "Big Lie" program, to dupe and brain wash the public, and to induce unquestioned faith rather than reason; this clandestine manipulation by the government is an unconstitutional abridgement of the U.S. Constitutional First Amendment prohibition against the government's recognition or promotion of an "establishment of religion" [i.e., generally, a mystical belief system based on faith rather than reason].
  15.  As an underlying cause of the "Holocaust", a proposal was made by the U.S. Government to the Treaty of Versaille Committee, in 1919. In a document known as "Morgenthau's Pastoral Policy", signed by President Woodrow Wilson [drafted by his Illuminati advisor, Hans Morgenthau, Sr.] and presented at Versailles. Under it, the U.S. attempted to make, as one of the provisions of the German surrender, the extermination of all Germans, as an "inherently warlike race", and the "reduction of Germany to a pastureland". The document, examined by me in 1968, was among the papers of former president Lyndon Baines Johnson, now kept in the Sid W. Richardson Research Center, at U.T., Austin.
  16. The "cattle mutilations" phenomenon is an ongoing program of the C.I.A.'s Special Operations Division. 'Biological samples' are removed by specially trained flying saucer crews, from thousands of cattle grazing in remote areas, for analysis, to measure radiation-caused auto-immune-deficiency and reproductive sterilization effects, after the cattle have been subjected to irradiation by "Death Ray" devices under development since the 60s. Since 1979, the saucers have bombarded members of the public, under the MK-NAOMI program of the C.I.A., for purposes of "population control" [i.e., extermination]. Government scientists use special surgical devices, standard blood coagulents, and cryogenic technology, enhanced by microwave equipment, to remove the cattle blood and ears, lips, tongues, mammary glands, genitalia, anuses, etc.; afterward, the carcasses are returned and air-dropped from flying saucers, back into their original pastures; the mysterious circumstances are misconstrued by government-spread rumors of "extra-terrestrials", attributed to "satanist cults" or other cults created by the government, or "coyotes and other natural predators", etc. [Of course, Man is a "natural predator"]. 
  17. The Antarctic "Ozone Hole", which U.S. government scientists pretend to be at a loss to explain-yet blaming it on "aerosol sprays" is probably the by-product of three nuclear missiles, armed with hydrogen bomb warheads, which were launched from the Antarctic by the U.S. military, on 27 August, 30 August, and 9 September 1957. The warheads were detonated at a 300-mile altitude, to create a reflective spherical layer of ionic particles surrounding the earth, to bounce radar impulses between the layer and the earth. The Strategic Air Command's global "backscatter" radar system, operated from the North American Air Defense [NORAD] command center deep beneath the earth at Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado, thus became operational in 1957, in time to verify that the Russians fired the rocket which launched Sputnik.
  18. The N.S.A. protracts a false "national security" veil, to continue concealment of flying saucer technology, creating false fears of "rampant anarchy", "chaos", and other exaggerations and ruses, before N.S.A., committees, to justify continued secrecy, and to continue to deny public access to, or to declassify the technology. [If society isn't ready for it, how can THEY be?] 
  19. The true scientific principles of gravity have been misrepresented, confused, and concealed by "Big Brother", even in school books read by our children, just to conceal flying saucer technology, to protect the energy cartels and the mixed-economy socialist political power structure from losing its illegitimate parasitic grip on us.
  20. In 1897, Nikola Tesla, a patriotic naturalized U.S. citizen, of Serbo-Croatian birth, discovered and published a new theory of energy and gravity, called the "Dynamic Theory of Gravity", which represented a unified field theory. Tesla's energy equation, "C=E/R", and Tesla's application to the Swiss Patent Office for his flying saucer patent, was made while Albert Einstein was a second class patent clerk there. Einstein's work was an Illuminati conspiracy to obliterate Tesla's discoveries, so the Illuminati could control flying saucers.
  21. The government's policy of looting and suppressing ideas from independent scientists, inventors, and thinkers, on behalf of the Trilateral Commission, is related to this process, involving (1) stealing ideas from creative individuals; (2) destroying those individuals' credibility, to conceal the sources and technology; (3) ruining the lives of those individuals (even murdering them if necessary), and denying compensation or credit; (4) exercising the option to suppress the ideas under "national security laws", or giving the discoveries to their corporate crook partners for exploitation; and (5) abusing and misusing the judicial system to carry out and enforce this illegitimate, criminal process.
  22. I am either correct in what I say, or am entitled to a Nobel Prize for new discoveries in gravitational theory and nuclear physics. The former is most certainly true. Since Russia in fact acquired the services of the top Nazi flying saucer scientist, and the top rocket scientist, from the Peenemünde operation, in 1945, here is a strong possibility that the Russians were privy to these secrets.


Some of you who have taken the time to read this letter, have the means to verify what I say. Others, who are among the guilty, will naturally be threatened. Others know me, and may have even offered me a high government position, which I refused. Some may shrug me off as a "harmless nut", while others may seek to harm me even more. Those who know the truth, and failed or refused to use their power to restrain the abusive government, criminals, courts, and lawyers, are responsible for causing me to say these things, and have inadvertently liberated this truth, which is my means of self defense, an inalienable natural right.

Bureaucrats naturally underestimate the power of the individual, since they are collectivists who lack a concept of individuality, operating under the delusion of "the invincibility of the state". I may not have become angry enough to publish this expose', if they had not continued to harass me. However, what I say I HAD to say, and would have said it much sooner had it not taken me so long to gain the opportunity between harassments. Even though I am aware of the danger to me and my family, and since there have already been several murder attempts, any one of which could have succeeded, I say this while there is still an opportunity to do so, and remove their motive from the equation. Besides, it is really they who are afraid of the truth.

This letter is not intended to advance or affect any pending litigation. Those of the judiciary have already proclaimed their prejudice against me, all my pleadings having fallen upon deaf ears. This letter should not affect rights which have already been predisposed in the anti-individual bigoted courts, according to them.

This letter represents my civil disobedience, freedom of speech and expression of political opinion, declaring the right to the disposition of the products of my own creativity, and to protest the hypocrisies of our government and courts, as a citizen, a human being, an American, and a Citizen of the World.

Nothing in this book was procured in violation of any law, including "national security laws"; our government officially denies a national security interest in flying saucers, denies their existence, and we are entitled to take our government at its word, albeit unreliable and false.

Those who deny the existence of flying saucers, or who falsely assume that they are extraterrestrial, are either the victims of government/corporate-state fraud, are irrational, brainwashed dupes, or are government liars. Those who make the most rational assumption-that "flying saucers are man-made flying machines" - will eventually be vindicated by history, since the truth will be known sooner or later, and it is already very, very late.

I would have invented the flying saucer if it had not already been invented, since the concept occurred to me when I was a boy studying electricity. At age 15, I prepared for a career in aerodynamics, until I witnessed a flying saucer in broad daylight, in the company of seven other intelligent witnesses. Believing that aerodynamics would be an obsolete field by the time I finished college, I cancelled my plans. I would never have expected the secrets still to be hidden over forty years later, with aerodynamics still be a viable field, due to the continued suppression. I had been building powered model flying saucers for four years before my first close-up daylight sighting in 1953. I knew that flying saucers were real, man-made flying contraptions, powered by electricity.

While saucers are visually fantastic, with their brilliant electrical corona discharges, emission of "metallic colors", and movement in rapid bursts, changing directions instantaneously, there was nothing which could not be explained by electronic and physical theory. I could see concentric striations on a somewhat crudely spun metal hull (probably a tungsten alloy), which was a crude, early form of "stealth" radar evasion technology, which "extraterrestrials" would have had no use for.

The spreading of confusion and lies shows something important to hide, involving high priorities, and highly trained and well-paid people. The patterns of this deceit reveals the substance of hidden knowledge, extracted by a time-consuming process. It is best not to believe anything until you have a reason to believe it.

This chapter caps off over 17 years of overt judicial harassment which ensued the moment George Bush took power at the CIA. Bush is a pal with fellow Trilateralist-Republican, Robert O. Anderson, the man who controls the North Slope of Alaska and the HAARP project. Anderson would now probably disavow any connection to ARCO, which he created. He now claims bankruptcy. Chapter I can be thought of as a kind of "Revolutionary Manifesto of Laissez Faire Capitalist Creatology"- [i.e., a manifesto of a radical, new artistic and scientific religion, based on the "Science of the Creative Process"]. It is a non-mystical, rational religion.

In 1979, I acquired a "Peiltochterkompass" [German, for "polar-daughter - i.e., "slave" compass, a crude, 1943, WW II-vintage, German navigational device [the earliest type of celestial guidance system], which was interconnected to a "master compass" [a gyrocompass oriented to the North Pole]. It triggered bi-polar pairs of electrodes in the hull of the "KT-p2".

The flying saucer and its scientific principle, is the world's greatest invention, which mankind has been denied the benefits of for over fifty years, by the coercive monopolists, through government harassment, murder, secrecy, misinformation, hoax and other deceits.

It is now time to end this hoax upon the American people by their own government, and to end corporate-socialism and tax-slavery, and to return power to the individual. It is time for creative mankind to remove this yoke from its neck, and to move forward with a truly new world order of creative, laissez-faire capitalist civilization, with a free flow of beneficially creative ideas, associations, and products among mankind, in a peaceful world, peopled by creative, free, autonomous and self-sufficient individuals, whose bounty can provide for all. We have nothing to lose except stupidity.

NOW LET IT BE KNOWN that those who are responsible for what I am now saying, are supported by pillars of lies, and have set a philosophical wrecking ball into motion, which will eventually smash down their own foundations.

Europe's 1933 UFO Crash, Hitler, Admiral Byrd, and the Antarctic Base New Berlin

The actual events during the 1930s are somewhat obscure as Hitler built a war machine and gained strength in Germany. Many of the reports are speculation based on the few known facts. We know Hitler sent expeditions around the world to find some of world’s ancient artifacts and lost technology.

The first German Antarctic Expedition was in 1924-27. Neuschwabenland was the German Colony set up in 1938-39 as the war got underway.

William Brophy writes, "On 13 June 1933, a UFO crashed near Magenta, Italy just west of Milano. The occupants were tall blond Nordics with oriental like features on their light blue eyes. The Italians called the UFO la Campania; the Germans called it Die Locked. The Japanese told the Italians and Germans that those tall blonde-haired people were in their legends; this led to the Axis Alliance.".

Hitler realized the craft had likely been built on Earth and sent teams out to find the alien intelligence bases. When Adolf Hitler spread his message of hatred, genocide, and oppression, as having been inspired by a blond race of superhuman warriors referred to as Aryans.

The Nazis themselves claimed that an extraterrestrial society was the source of their ideology and the power behind their organization. Nazi mysticism, indeed, was reportedly a direct product of cult worship of the Extraterrestrials. The Nazis referred to their hidden extraterrestrial masters as underground supermen that apparently had a base in Antarctica. Hitler believed in the supermen and claimed that he had once met one of them, as did other members of the Thule leadership.

The Nazis said that their supermen resided beneath the Earth’s surface and were the creators of the Aryan race that suddenly appeared thousands of years ago. Aryans therefore in Adolf Hitler’s reasoning, constituted the world’s only pure race and all other people were viewed as inferior genetic mutations. The Nazis planned to re-purify humanity by committing genocide against anyone who was not an Aryan. Top Nazi leaders believed that the underground supermen would return to the surface of the Earth to rule it as soon as the Nazis began their racial purification program and established the Thousand Year Reich.

The tall blonde-haired people’s craft were the UFO’s over Los Angeles on 25 February, 1942, and a large disk with a row of windows was shot down in the Santa Catalina Island area recovered by the ars-1 Viking ship and taken to Moffat Field Navy Base.

Nazi "aerial disc"’ research became more advanced throughout the Second World War, and reportedly utilized jet-turbine and later electromagnetic propulsion systems.

As it became apparent that the Germans were losing the war, they allegedly transferred this technology to a base in Antarctica which had been established years earlier, complete with underground installations, and code-named it the "New Berlin".

Although deliberately obscured by the West today, Adolf Hitler was obsessed with Neuschwabenland which was the name given to the area of Antarctica located between 20E and 10W in Queen Maud Land which he believed would one day be the world capital of his “master race”.

Allegedly there were 300 square miles of land without snow and ice.

Throughout the entire duration of the war the Nazis had allegedly shipped scientists, workers, technology and saucer components to this Antarctica base or bases.

ome reports also allege that Adolf Hitler escaped capture and escaped to South America.

Over one hundred German U Boats disappeared during World War II and were never found.

According to German naval archives, months after Germany surrendered to the Allies in April, 1945, the German submarine U-530 arrived at the South Pole from the Port of Kiel. It is felt an unknown alien intelligence occupied parts of Antarctica and gave advanced secrets of UFOs to the Germans.

Antarctica Bases and Operation Highjump

Soviet archives have extensive files claiming that Nazi Germany and the United States forged an alliance prior to the end of World War II allowing Hitler and cohorts to escape to Antarctica in exchange for German technology that included the atomic bomb, an advanced fighter jets, rocket and flying saucer technology. This would also explain the post WW2 global campaign to suppress the information concerning the free energy aspect of this from the public.

There is also being advanced the theory that the extraterrestrials belonged to very ancient civilizations that was here before modern man. The idea that these underwater structures predate the Nazis is further bolstered by anomalies such as:

The 1513 Piri Reis map, with Antarctica at the bottom was used by Western explorers to “discover” the New World and showing Antarctica to be ice-free with flowing rivers and a clean coastline.

We do know Nazi U977 and U530 submarines went aground in Argentina after carrying supplies to the Antarctic a few weeks after the end of war. Advanced U-Boats and supply ships operating out of neutral Spain allegedly carried hundreds of Germans to Antarctica and South America.

The first American expedition to explore Antarctica since 1840 was the Byrd Expedition from 1928-1930. Another US Antarctic Service Expedition 1939-41 visited the continent with Captain R. H. Cruzen in command.

At the end of war Intelligence reports reported Nazi’ ships were heading south. The Secretary of State, Secretary of War and Secretary of the Navy on 7 August 1946 approved Operation Highjump.

A memorandum prepared for the meeting stated that the Navy proposes to send an expedition to the Antarctic early in 1947. The purpose of this expedition includes training personnel and testing material, consolidating and extending U.S. sovereignty over Antarctic areas, and investigating possible base sites. Rear Admiral Richard .E. Byrd will be designated as Officer-in-Charge of the project. Task Force Commander was Captain R. H. Cruzen”.

Both men had visited the area prior to the war and allegedly and located several “oases”, now secret areas of the Antarctic.

On 2 December 1946, the task force set sail for the Antarctic continent with a force of 13 ships carrying some 4,700 men The Task Force 68 included multiple aircraft aboard an aircraft carrier the 'USS Philippine Sea'. The Central Group of ships reached the Bay of Whales on 15 January 1947, and planned to stay for six months where they constructed temporary runways along the glaciers, in a base dubbed Little America IV. The ships navigated through an ice pack of several hundred miles before reaching Little America. Icebergs and unpredictable weather were formidable foes during the course of the expedition. Upon arriving at the polar continent they reportedly split into three separate groups and began a massive reconnaissance-like operation taking over 50,000 photographs.

One Navy reconnaissance aircraft was flown by Bunger who flew west with cameras humming. Suddenly the men in the cockpit saw a dark spot come up over the barren white horizon and as they drew closer, they couldn’t believe their eyes. Byrd later described it as a “land of blue and green lakes and brown hills in an otherwise limitless expanse of ice”. Bunger and his men carefully inspected the region and then raced back to the ship to tell the others of their discovery.

Several days later Bunger and his flight crew returned for another look, finding one of the lakes big enough to land his flying boat on. The lake was filled with red, blue and green algae which gave the lakes their distinctive color.

Most interesting to note about Admiral Byrd’s Operation Highjump mission was his solo flight towards the South Pole on 19 February 1947 wherein he recorded in his diary the following:

“1000 Hours- “We are crossing over the small mountain range and still proceeding northward as best as can be ascertained. Beyond the mountain range is what appears to be a valley with a small river or stream running through the center portion. There should be no green valley below! Something is definitely wrong and abnormal here! We should be over ice and snow! To the portside are great forests growing on the mountain slopes. Our navigation instruments are still spinning, the gyroscope is oscillating back and forth!” Although not released, an alien intelligence was allegedly located.

Operation Highjump has become a topic among UFO conspiracy theorists, who claim it was a covert US military operation to conquer alleged secret underground alien or Nazi facilities in Antarctica and capture the German Vril flying discs. This has always been denied by the US Military.

Commander Graham Bethune and other Navy personnel claim the task force encountered ‘resistance’ and that there was a battle between American and UFO forces operating there, with losses on both sides.

Reports claim disc shape craft came out of the sea coming through the ice attacking some of the ships and aircraft. A brief clip of this was allegedly caught on film.

Navy official photos show a crashed PBM aircraft, stating this aircraft with the call sign of ‘George 1’ mysteriously blew up killing three airmen.

Naval ships and personnel were quickly withdrawn back to the United States in late February 1947, and the expedition was terminated allegedly due to the early approach of winter and worsening weather conditions.

Among the discoveries made during the 1946-47 expedition was the sighting of two “oases,” one a region of ice-free lakes and land. More than 300,000 square miles of uncharted territory was charted on aerial mapping operations. Their observations proved that radical changes would have to be made on existing maps of the Antarctic.” Why would warm spots, with warm water exist in the Antarctic? 

Admiral Byrd Warns of an "invasion of the country by hostile planes coming from Polar regions"

These were not “isolated” remarks. Admiral Byrd later repeated the each of these points of view, resulting from he described as his “personal knowledge” gathered both at the north and south poles, before a news conference held for International News Service.

The Intelligence report, gathered from Soviet spies embedded in the US, revealed that the US Navy had sent the military expedition to find and destroy a hidden Nazi base. On the way, they encountered a mysterious UFO force that attacked the military expedition destroying several ships and a significant number of planes.

Indeed, Operation Highjump had suffered “many casualties” as stated in initial press reports from Chile. The Navy officially lists four men were killed and many injured during the two month operation.

A Soviet documrentary worth watching, with English subtitles, claims a destroyer was sunk:

The US was very upset with Admiral Byrd’s revelations, and the alien crashes at St Augustin and Roswell. They established, in 1947, The National Security Act creating the National Security Council.

American Reinhold Schmidt, a man whose father was born in Germany, and who tells in his book “Incident at Kearney”, that he was taken on a ‘flying saucer’ on several occasions. Schmidt states that “the crew spoke German and acted like German soldiers”. He also stated that they took him to the “Polar” region.

Later in 1959, the Antarctic Treaty was signed by 12 nations that protects Antarctica and any foreign intelligence that occupies this area.

The area on the mainland between 90 degrees west and 150 degrees west, combined with the interior of the Norwegian Sector is the only major land on Earth not claimed by any country.

Antarctica was not being set aside for protection of commercialism, but was being set aside as a possible asylum for alien, other intelligence, or a Nazi Base.

The Treaty states:

Article 1 – The area is to be used for peaceful purposes only; military activity, such as weapons testing, is prohibited but military personnel and equipment may be used for scientific research or any other peaceful purpose;

Article 2 – Freedom of scientific investigations and cooperation shall continue;

Article 3 – Free exchange of information and personnel in cooperation with the United Nations and other international agencies;

Article 4 – The treaty does not recognize, dispute, nor establish territorial sovereignty claims; no new claims shall be asserted while the treaty is in force;

Article 5 – The treaty prohibits nuclear explosions or disposal of radioactive wastes.

Rob Arndt:

Probably the most misunderstood and problematic of all terrestrial-based disc technology lies at the heart of the German disc programs that started with the birth of the NSDAP [Nazi Party] in 1920 - a full thirteen years before Adolf Hitler came to power as the leader of the Third Reich.

To fully comprehend the depth of these programs requires the knowledge that above all else the NSDAP was founded from the onset by the occult Thule [1918] and Vril [1921] Gesellschafen [Societies], and other occult groups like the DHvSS [Men of the Black Stone -1912] that stretched back to the turn of the Twentieth Century with the Old German Order [a.k.a. Order of Teutons].

As such, the very first disc project built in Germany in 1922 was not even an aircraft but an inter-dimensional flight machine in disc form - the Jenseitsflugmaschine [JFM] built by Thule-Vril using secret business member funding.

A 1967 book by Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier, “The Morning of the Magicians". made many spectacular claims about the Vril Society of Berlin. Several later writers, including Jan van Helsing, Norbert-Jürgen Ratthofer, and Vladimir Terziski, have built on their work, connecting the Vril Society with UFOs.

Among their claims, they write that the society had made contact with an alien race and dedicated itself to creating spacecraft to reach the aliens.

In partnership with the Thule Society and the Nazi Party, it developed a series of flying disc prototypes. With the Nazi defeat, the society allegedly retreated to a base in Antarctica and vanished.

the only historical basis for the Vril Society was a passing reference in a 1949 article by Willy Ley titled 'Pseudoscience in Naziland', to a society in pre-WW II Germany that was searching for Vril [a supposed source of great psychic power invented by Bulwer Lytton in his novel “The Coming Race”].

Maria Orsc seems to have been invented out of whole cloth by Pauwels and Bergier.

The machine was tested for two years before being hurriedly dismantled and moved to Augsburg, stored at Messerschmitt’s aircraft facility. It is doubtful channeled flight was ever achieved, but Thule and Vril had gained some valuable information and experience with power units and electro-magnetic rings.

Years later, as rocketry became the subject of most interest, a young Austrian engineer named Hermann Noordung was the first to publish a book that proposed a solar-powered disc space station and its radical propulsion system. It was called the Wohnrad [Habitat or Living Wheel]. Unfortunately, Noordung died the same year as the book was published in 1929.

Had he lived, he would have been a contemporary of both Oberth and von Braun at Peenemünde pioneering rocket powered discs that might have allowed Germany to launch the world’s first geo-synchronous satellite or mount another bizarre war weapon, the small scale truck-mounted Sonnenlinse [Sun Lens].

This was designed for use on sunny days to focus bright sunlight on Allied bomber streams using four highly polished reflective mirror dishes on a rotating turntable.

Its purpose was to blind Allied pilots while conventional German aircraft attacked them. Hitler had intended to construct a football stadium sized single lens in 1:1 scale but only the mini prototype 4-mirror truck mount device was tested.

It was captured intact by American troops in 1945.
Such a weapon on the ground was practically useless, but a giant reflective solar space mirror could actually burn aircraft right out of the sky.

Noordung’s disc space station concept could have easily been turned into one giant armed fortress in space.

Hitler expressed interest in the idea up until the last year of the war with fantastic unrealistic dreams of an armed space station launched from Peenemünde by von Braun up to an orbit of 4,000 miles.

Artist impression of Wohnrad with space mirrors deployed

But rocketry success was years away and both Thule and Vril took little notice or interest in the VFR Verein für Raumschiffahrt [a.k.a. German Rocket Association].

Such occult societies viewed rocket power as wasted energy and time so they pursued their own disc designs with great enthusiasm and will. 

It was Wernher von Braun who designed both the A-11 rocket for the purpose of launching a satellite and a less complicated circular space station.

Neither were built as the V-2 program became Germany‘s top wartime priority.

Von Braun’s A-11 concept was nowhere near construction, not even the second stage A-10.

Apart from the Thule and Vril dream of Raumflug [Spaceflight)] was another German disc designer who to this day remains virtually unknown.
His name was Dr. Franz Philipp,  a World War I comrade of Adolf Hitler, who proposed a series of rockets and discs that were to utilize Sonnenstrahl Triebwerke [Solar ray Thrustwork] engines which were in essence light conversion power plants - a very radical concept in the year preceding World War II. 

Dr. Philipp envisaged a range of these craft under the title Frali. Frali I was proposed in September 1938.

It resembled a modern-day blimp but with an array of circular solar panels located on each side of the craft and two tailfins at the end of the machine.

Another Frali design, the Frali VI was a cylindrical craft with a strange layered conical nosecone and flat solar panels all over its body which ended with a single square tali fin.

The Philipp designed Greif [Griffin] was a large disc aircraft with four aft-mounted solar rockets similar in shape to the early A-series rockets but covered in solar flat panels.

Then there was Philipp’s final design, his Sonnenflieger [Sun Flyer] - a huge glass domed saucer with solar panels running along the rim of the disc and a three layered underbody which was supported by rather large lunar-lander type telescopic legs.

Dr. Philipp never patented his designs but wrote a book that translated into "German Spaceflight Since 1934: A Very Troublesome Book".

In it, he claimed to have built a solar rocket and fired it towards the moon in the 1930s, but no such evidence has ever been produced to substantiate such a claim.

Nevertheless, Dr. Philipp was responsible during the Second World War for a wide range of secret project research including the often spoken of “Death Ray” which actually was a crude form of microwave weapon developed at a research facility in Berlin.

When the war ended Dr. Philipp was captured by the Russians and employed as a "camp screener" for German scientists due to his ability to speak several languages - among them fluent Russian. Philipp later claims that he kept important German scientists away from various Soviet weapons programs post-war but admits he shared his knowledge on death ray technology. 

Adolf Hitler [a Thule member along with Göring, Himmler, Bormann, Hess, and various other top Nazi officials], on the other hand, became Chancellor of Germany in 1933 and thus the eleven year occult metaphysical science of Thule-Vril became strengthened with official state backing for the continued disc development programs starting with an RFZ Rundflugzeug [Round Aircraft] series of discs that utilized levitator technology developed by Professor Winfried Otto Schumann of the Technical University of Munich who worked on the mysterious JFM from 1922-24. 

The year 1937 saw the first RFZ discs built, RFZ units 1-3 after Vril had purchased the fallow land surrounding the Arado Brandenburg aircraft plant for flight testing. T

the first RFZ series utilized the early Schumann levitators, but often with disastrous results. The very first disc, RFZ-1, rose very briefly only to 60 meters before losing flight control. Pilot Lothar Waiz, testing the machine at Arado Brandenburg, quickly bailed from the wobbling double-hulled disc with Ar-196 controls and attached tail unit failing to function, causing the machine to spin out of control and crash into the ground.

VladimiTerziski tells of  "alien tutor race" that secretly began cooperating with certain German scientists in the late 1920s in underground bases and began to introduce their concepts of philosophical, cultural, and technological progress. He maintains that anti-gravity research began in the 1920s with the first hybrid anti-gravity circular craft, the RFZ-1, constructed by the secret Vrill society.

Not to be discouraged, the RFZ-2 was built the same year and achieved a measure of success. This was a very small armed disc with two light MGs that was used in 1940 for reconnaissance over the British Isles and in the South Atlantic with a rendezvous with the German commerce raider 'Atlantis' during the same year. The RFZ 3, 4, and 6 were all prototypes that grew larger and more powerful in each subsequent test model. They were built from 1937-1942. The brief designation of RFZ-5 was renamed Haunebu in 1939 with the RFZ-7 becoming the Vril-1 Jäger [Hunter] in 1941. 

These highly advanced disc aircraft were overseen by Himmler's SS - specifically, the occult "Order of the Black Sun" SS Technical Branch Unit E-IV [Entwicklungsstelle 4] which was created to explore various alternative energies. This unit was tasked with developing both the Haunebu and Vril disc designs that utilized the world's first electro-magnetic-gravitic drive systems: the Vril and Thule Triebworks [Thrustworks].

These drives relied on Hans Coler's SS-adapted free energy Konverter [Magnetstromapparat] coupled to various Van De Graaf band generators and a Marconi vortex dynamo [a huge spherical tank of heated mercury at the center of each craft] to create powerful rotating electro-magnetic fields that affected gravity and reduced mass. 

Many have often inquired "why" then when war started in 1939 did Germany not use these advanced and unique machines in air combat?

These machines, despite their superior overall performance to conventional piston-engined aircraft and early jets, could not be adapted to any useful military role other than the most basic transport and reconnaissance work.

The strong electro-magnetic engines were difficult to control and required a complex celestial navigation system to fly.

While maximum speed and range were beyond belief, the flight characteristics of the discs could not hope to imitate high-performance fighters like the Me Bf 109 or Fw-190 in aerial combat.

There was very little room for either offensive or defensive armament in these designs except for a few experimental light MG and MK cannons that proved impractical in flight and a large experimental Donar KSK Kraftstrahlkanone [Power Ray Cannon]. 

Early Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighter

These guns tended to destabilize the discs badly and were eventually removed or replaced with lighter automated guns, usually mounted above the control center of each disc.

The disc bodies themselves were not capable of carrying any ordnance at all internally or externally [no bombs, rockets, or missiles] and could initially only make turns of 22.5, 45, and 90 degrees due to a complex control system that utilized mag-field impulsers [magnetic field shifting] to rapidly change direction. Extreme heat shielding was also required due to the fantastic speeds at which these machines could achieve.

SS metallurgists came up with an advanced material known as Viktalen but the larger the design meant single, double, and even triple hulls to protect the crews. Viktalen was unusual in that it was more of an armor plating than of aircraft construction material. Due to the weight factor, especially in the Haunebu series these craft became enormous. 

Nevertheless, the SS pursued an aggressive policy of theft, forced cooperation, and strong internal development of these types of machines due to the increasing Allied bombing offensive that made conventional aircraft take-offs and landings highly dangerous as the war progressed towards imminent defeat.

VTOL [Vertical Take-Off and Landing] was seen as the most logical solution to this problem. If the SS could develop a production machine that in the future could be armed [with cannon, missiles, electro-static, or even plasma weapons] then Germany might be able to turn the air war. 

To shorten the time of finding VTOL solutions, the SS robbed both Germany's patent office and every patent office in occupied Europe. Those with aeronautical skill enough to contribute to the SS effort were either arrested or coerced into participating in the programs - among them Viktor Schauberger of Austria and Henri Coanda of Rumania.

The SS also used its large slave labor force to assist in construction of large underground facilities for these discs and often for production of components to these machines. 

Though the SS requested additional slave laborers from Armaments Minister Albert Speer near the end of the war, Speer himself was not told "what" war projects the laborers would be used for; indeed, Speer was deliberately kept out of the entire SS disc development programs for security reasons and the fact that the SS was a state-within-a-state with its own production facilities, war material, scientists and technicians, slave workforce, and the knowledge of secret Third Reich military bases outside Germany where the discs were both tested and stored.

Speer was considered untrustworthy and a security risk like Rudolf Hess had been. It has been alleged post-war that Hess held secret knowledge of the German disc programs and both the Antarctic and Argentine bases; thus, for that reason alone was held isolated from the world ever since his capture. We will never know as his secrets died with him in 1987 [either as a result of suicide or murder].

Among those being held, Viktor Schauberger became the leader of most interest due to his highly unconventional promotion of vortex technology which was perfected while he was in SS custody at Mauthausen. Originally designed for an odd SS bio-submarine the strange Repulsin discoid motors, started in 1940 with help from the Kertl Company, were to be eventually adapted to aircraft.

Heinkel was the first to receive the early results of the discoid motor tests but refused to act on the information in the same way the Luftwaffe refused to act on Heinkel's historic flight of the world’s first jet aircraft, the He 178, three days before the start of WW2.

In 1941, a year after the Repulsin Model A motor was being studied one of Heinkel's own flight engineers named Rudolf Schriever proposed his own "Flugkreisel" [Flight Gyro] that utilized conventional jet engines instead of the Repulsin discoid motor. His design was taken from him by the SS and handed over to a team of scientists for further study and construction of a large flying prototype.

The primary team consisted of Dr. Richard Miethe, Klaus Habermohl, and Dr. Giuseppe Belluzzo plus six more engineers that remained unnamed even after the war. 

On 24 March 1950, "Il Giornale d'Italia" informed readers in reference to Italian engineer Giuseppe Belluzzo that the “flying discs” were invented and designed in 1942 in Italy and Germany. The article caused a sensation, and within a few days most of the major Italian newspapers reprinted the same information.

On 30 March, the Italian Air Force General, Ranza, published a refutation, but it was too late.

"Giuseppe Bellutzzoo became famous as a specialist in thermodynamics and designer of steam turbines. For example, in one of his first scientific papers, Einstein reviewed Belluzzo’s book "Principles of Graphic Thermodynamics".

After Mussolini came to power, Belluzzo from 1925 to 1928 served as Minister of Economics, and from 1928 to 1929 Minister of Education in the Italian government. Then he published the book "The Economics of Fascism." 

About his further scientific or engineering career [including during the war] nothing is known.

On 27 March, the newspaper "Neue Presse",   citing the agency AP, wrote:

Italian scientist Giuseppe Belluzzo ... claims that flying saucers were created in Germany and Italy in 1942. They do not constitute anything supernatural and have not appeared from Mars, but only rationally use the latest technical achievements. Probably one of the great powers is experimenting with them now..

In the most famous article of this period, published three days later in "Spiegel", Belluzzo is also briefly mentioned, however, the word "inventor" is prudently put in quotes:

“I developed the drawings myself,” says Belluzzo. Already in 1942, Hitler and Mussolini ordered to conduct experiments with the "flying saucers", which were to be used as long-range weapons. Unfortunatelly,  the drawings disappeared during  Mussolini's flight to Northern Italy.

These will not be the last missing drawings in this story. The reader will gradually get used to this sad pattern for technical progress.

In the Hamburg newspaper "Strasse" dated 9 April 1950, it is reported:

"Professor Bellutzzoo described himself in an interview with the INS [International News Service] in Rome as the inventor of “flying saucers”, but pointed out German technicians and engineers who -with him or under his leadership- worked on this project. Our correspondent met with one of them,  engineer Kurt Schnittke  from Regensburg.

"Engineer Schnitke unambiguously made it clear that the recently observed 'flying saucers' are not at all the messengers of distant planets ... The fact is, according to Schnittke, that another designer, together with a group of his employees, got into the Soviet Union in 1945. Undoubtedly, Italian-German developments were further developed there..

"In this regard, I recall the reports of flying saucers 'that came three years ago from Poland, Finland and Sweden ... But the danger that the East took control of this invention is not too great - after all, two leading designers remained in the West'.

From the context of the article, it is not entirely clear who is meant by "the two remaining designers in the West":.

Belluzzo and Schnittke themselves or third parties?.

It is important, however, that here, with the names [more precisely, the name] of German employees are mentioned for the first time.

However, Kurt Schnittke was unlucky.

By a twist of fate or by the intent of later compilers, he was left out of history.

It is a pity, because unlike most of the further semi-mystical characters, engineer K. Schnittke from Regensburg is quite real.

On the sites dedicated to the history of the Messerschmitt aircraft, onecan find his photographs of military times at the Regensburg airfield.

From 960 to 1973 he carried the heavy burden of the chairman of the Regensburg Aviation Model Circle.

But the glory of the designer of "flying saucers" bypassed him.

On 22 April 1950, "Volkszeitung" reported:

"In an interview given by the famous Italian physicist Belluzzo to INS, he named the names of some Germans with whom he worked together on "flying saucers".

One of them, designer Rentel, together with his assistants went in 1945 to the Russians. It seems that he continues to develop in Russia the “flying saucers” invented back in 1942.

"The same opinion is shared by the engineer K. Schnittke, who together with Rentel conducted the first tests in 1943 at the initial stage of the project and is also one of the inventors"..

The article further describes the use of the “flying saucer of Belluzzo”.

The unmanned disc was supposed to rise to a height of 10 km and from there slowly fall into the enemy bomber squadrons waiting for it. In order not to cause damage on the ground, at around 1,000 meters the plate should automatically explode.

[Tthis undeniably ingenious tactical concept is in some contradiction with the ranged weapons mentioned in "Spiegel"]

Rentel, like Schnittke, left no trace in Ufology.

Perhaps the reason is that the unmanned flying saucer is extremely questionable from a military point of view of efficiency was considered by subsequent compilers unworthy of the engineering genius of the Third Reich.

An article in the "Wochenend" newspaper dated 13 April 1950 was a true milestone in the history of Ufology. 

The fact is that the discs multiplied in it for the first time..

"Already in 1938, Carl Wagner saw German design sketches for an airplane far removed from the norm.

"In 1943 he heard for the second time of this type, and in a place where the talks were factual and knowledgeable, the Ersatzkompanie für Soldaten im Ingenieursdienst der Luftwaffe [replacement company for soldiers in engineer duty for the air force] in Detmold.

"His depositions correspond closely with those of the Italian Professor Belluzzo, and they were written down and sent off before the announcement of the "Giornale d'Italia".

" This is the aircraft type engineer Wagner describes:

"An extended cigar or egg shaped cabin, around which, at center of gravity, a system of air screw rotates. The space between the cabin sides and the air screw ring is covered. The design of 1938 had anticipated propulsion by piston engines, with the counter revolution equalized by gyroscopes. By 1942 and 1943, jet propulsion techniques had advanced to the point that rocket jet nozzles could be utilized.

"The raw sketches which engineer Wagner drew from memory provide a clear explanation of the observed phenomena.

"Seen from above or below, the airplane looks like the flying saucer or disc, repeatedly described by pilots........ If one analyzes all the believable about discs, the most convincing explanation is the Flying Top airplane with jet propulsion described by Wagner.

After all, he is practically the only witness in the whole history of the flying saucers of the Third Reich, who not only saw the disc [or at least the drawings}, but overcame the desire to invent it.

Such dedication deserves, of course, all praise

"In Bremerhaven-Lee, Luizenshtrasse 9, second floor, left, retired pilot Rudolf Schriever painstakingly collects all reports about flying disks.

“I immediately thought of my work,” says the forty-year-old design engineer, “about the flying disc I designed ... The idea came to me in 1942, when I was the senior pilot in Bohemia".

Schriever worked on the first sketches. A year later, he engages Prague engineers ito assist him.

Equipped with nozzles from the Me-262, the three-ton “disc" was supposed to be 14.4 meters in diameter, and reach a horizontal speed of 4,200 km/h with a range of 6,000 km.

Until 15 April 1945 Shriver worked on his plans. The drawings were finished, Schriever was about to submit them to Göring. But the Russians were coming. Schriever had to run.

In the garden house of his father-in-law in Bremerhaven, Schriever set up a workshop. On 4 August 4 1948 it was burglarized. All plans for a flying disc and a finished model were stolen.

In the archives of the Bremerhaven criminal police there is a folder with the note: “The investigation has been stopped. The intruder was not found".

Since then, Shriver has talked about distant countries and beautiful plans with envoys of various governments. But for now he works as a truck driver at a US military base.

“If I had the opportunity, I would have built such a thing and flown away”. 

Rudolf Schriver is convinced that the Prague engineers, who are now working for another power, reconstructed his “flying  Disc”. For him, the mystery of "flying saucers" does not exist.

It is important to note that in this, the first article about Schriever, it seems that during the war he was engaged in “flying discs” as a hobby.

There is no question about any specialized design bureau. Moreover, by the end of the war only the drawings were ready, no prototypes, and even less, models ready for testing, were not mentioned.

The article was accompanied by a talented [from the point of view of a comic reader] sketch .

In terms of the Schriever discplane there is no way that a pilot could have flown the aircraft at high speed in a standing position although it is understood that the picture was an artists impression.

In an aircraft attempting to overcome speeds approaching the supersonic regime [or as we are told; the high Mach regime] the only solution, and one favoured by several of the better German aerodynamicists and designers would be to put the pilot in a prone position.

This was also suggested specifically for the flight involving high 'g' turns expected from the more advanced aircraft of the mid-1950s. 

[{Prone position had also been tested in the Lockheed F-80E and a variant of the B-17 bomber. This work was undertaken by a "Paperclip" scientist Dr. Hans Amtmann at Wright FField.]

In terms of Vertical take-off and landing, which requires great control at low speed, the only way for a pilot in this position, or in a seated position, would be to see through an inset window in the floor of the aircraft.

The large bubble cockpit shown in the picture would be a killer in terms of high speed flight and a blended design would be expected. 

-- Tim Matthews

Two years later, the "Deutsche Illustrierte"  Nr.45/1952 returned to the topic in a special report:

“"There is a man living in Germany who can say a lot more about this subject than anyone else in the world.

""All around the smal lhouse near Bremerhaven in which he lives, commotion has been reigning supreme for some time now.
"Delegates from Research Institutes and Universities, Professors and Engineers of western and eastern powers pass each other in the doorway.

T"Taopic Number #1’ is the Flying Saucer'. 

""It was constructed by the inhabitant of the house, the Engineer and Chief Pilot Rudolf Schriever, between 1941 and 1945 and was designated ‘Flugkreisel’ in the technical aviation arsenal of the former German Luftwaffe, now scattered in every direction of the winds for seven years.

On the table there is a stack of letters from many countries, and daily more arrive. The house on Hökerstraße 28 in Bremerhaven-Lehe has achieved world fame in expert circles. 

With a laugh, Flugkapitän Schriever walks to the window:

'Why didn’t I leave the country? Here’s a load of contract offers: South America, USA, East Germany - or should I say Russia. But maybe I am now immune to deception after I had bad experiences in South America'. 

And the Flugkreisel?

'It is of course reality, just as, maybe, some of the sightings of flying saucers are nothing but exploitation of my design plans, which were ‘kindly’ stolen from me in Regen, in the Bavarian woods, at farmer Prestel’s place on May 14, 1945. I was welcomed there with my family on our flight from Prague'

"The idea itself? It is basically simple. Not only the main problem, but also the main danger in flight, is that starting and landing are possible only at high speeds. Helicopters can start and land vertically, but are relatively slow in flight. Why not then combine the outstanding qualities of the helicopter and the normal plane construction with each other?

"Thus Schriever came up with the idea of making the fuselage a flattened sphere in the center, with several blades fitted together like a disc, rotating around it .

'On 15 July 1941, I took up the primary development work', continued Schriever, 'the first model version of the Flugkreisel was completed on 2 June 1942. Driven by tiny rockets, it flew a day later, and we were all delighted by its aerial performance. However, I was only able to achieve actual construction of a full-scale model in Prague.

'The diameter of the first Flying Saucer, if you want to call it that, was 14.4 meters. The flight characteristics were mind boggling: Vertical Start and Landing, Hovering in the air, and a maximum speed of around 4000 kilometers an hour! After a brief pause, the inventor declares: 'Had we been able to continue in 1945, flying saucers would be as common a sight in the skies of Germany as hot buns in a bread basket'.

At first the whole story sounds great, but it has its stumbling blocks 

If Schriever was the revolutionary inventor in aviation, why was he not brought to the US under Project Paperclip? 

Even if his valuable supporting papers were stolen in 1945, why does he still have to agitate for his project in 1952 [seven years later], and why are his devices not already flying around as a superior plane? 

Why did Schriever not accept any offers, he would have been a "self-made man". And, why, in these days of increased Cold War tensions, has no Secret Service kidnapped him, if he invented such a revolutionary plane? In these hard times of the spiraling arms race ruled by the aviation motto "Higher, Further, Faster", the secret services of both east and west are not delicate in their methods.

His original plans were stolen – but if he was involved from day one with the project, he would have been able to set them down on paper again within a short time. What, however, is circulating are rough sketches and not technical drawings. Also, the one-year time span between the first development work and the first flight is very short, if one considers the revolutionary new concepts, even extremely short.

Arthur Sack spent years with his "Kreisflügler" but never got it airborne – and that is a with a relatively traditionally designed airplane!

Where did the rocket drives come from, for which the Walter Company in Kiel even in 1944 had the greatest production problems in supplying them for the Rocket Interceptor Me-162 which carried the utmost priority? Even for an amateur, with some scientific background, the principles behind Schriever’s Flugkreisel are contradictory and by no means ‘basically simple’. This is the reason why even today, helicopters and airplanes run on two different "tracks"; no one to now has created a Hybrid.

What is the meaning of the "South America Connection", which the Nazis used after the war to escape the judicial pursuit of the victorious Allies. Is this the reason for Schriever’s disappointment and for his return to Germany? Maybe he was "undesired"’ in South America?

And he is now trying to make a name for himself in a defeated Germany with its modest aviation industry, to get a Job?

 "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung" announced on 15 November 1952 in an exclusive report from Hamburg:

The 35 year old former German Flight Captain Rudolf Schriever of Bremerhaven has filed for a patent on a wingless elliptical flying machine he developed over eleven years of constructive work.

It has a diameter of forty meters and can be powered by either jet or piston engines.

According to the inventor, this German Saucer can take off and land vertically, so no runways are required. Furthermore, it can hover in midair and can, if necessary, sink safely to the ground without power. The maximum flight speed is claimed to be three times that of sound.

This report makes the whole "Af­fä­ire Schrie­ver" even more suspect.

If the machine was already being build in the Forties, why is a patent in Germany only being applied for late in 1952? And what about Richard Mie­the in Tel Aviv, who supposedly accepted a concrete offer to build a Saucer from a US company back in June?

Both announcements somehow do not mesh, especially in light of the already reported "facts’. According to them, the "Flugscheibe" had the support of the Reichs­luft­fahrt-Mi­ni­ste­ri­um in 1942, which means, that a patent existed in Germany since that time. 

Following the Reparation Demands of the victorious Allies, any interested state could have availed themself. Why, suddenly now, eleven years of constructive work? That sounds as if he continued practical construction after the war, somehing never mentioned before. 

Time clearly benefited Shriever - he is seven years younger, and his plate's diameter had tripled. Unfortunately, this is the last lifetime report about him - it is believed that he died in 1953.

Dr. Giuseppe Belluzo, the only Italian among them, had come up with his own design for a jet powered round flying bomb - the Turboproietti [Turbine Projectile] that would later remove him from the Flugkreisel program entirely and return him to the Fiat Riva Del Garda facility in Italy.

Meanwhile, BMW [who were to provide the turbo-jets for the Flugkreisel] started internal work on a design very similar to Schriever's Flugkreisel but utilizing the company's own BMW 003 jet engines.

These machines, called "Flügelräder" [Winged Wheels] were not true disc aircraft but jet auto-gyros that used a standard BMW 003 turbojet with a Strahlrohr [Jet pipe] deflector to power a multi-blade disc rotor. These craft were built on a much smaller scale than Schriever's Flugkreisel, so work proceeded from 1941-45 with construction of prototypes beginning in 1943.

Instability, however, was never really solved in the earlier designs. Most remained either tethered during testing or only made short hops. Only one disc, a BMW Flügelrad II V-2 (or V-3) possibly achieved level flight in April 1945. 

Schriever's own design began to take shape in 1942 and flew in 1943.

It flew under jet power provided by three attached special kerosene-burning engines driving the disc rotor as well as two kerosene jets attached to the body for forward thrust and horizontal stability. Its jets made a horrendous whine as the large disc took time to power-up before take-off.

Flight characteristics were said to be fair with the exception of inherent instability at low speed. But then the SS decided to abruptly drop Schriever's jet-fan design in favor of one of Dr. Miethe's designs that eliminated the large disc rotor blades driven by jet engines altogether for Schauberger's vortex engine, but on a larger scale. 

With Schauberger released back to Leonstein, Austria in 1944 by the SS the Miethe prototype constructed in Breslau took to the air the same year over the Baltic. Its resemblance to the Repulsin Model B was unmistakable except for the addition of a bubble cockpit on top and water drainage [bleed] pipes to the rear of the craft instead of at the bottom.

Another design by Miethe may have been built during the war - the Elektrische Luft Turbine [Electric Air Turbine] patented in Germany postwar by Bruno Schwenteit, crediting both Miethe and Schriever. This was a unique unmanned disc that burned oxygen and nitrogen in a superheated chamber injected with helium to produce tremendous thrust.

It is perhaps this design alone that could be the mysterious, often-quoted V-7 weapon. 

At the same time, a private venture with official backing from Air Ministry General ernst Udet was taking shape in Leipzig. Arthur Sack, a farmer, who caught the attention of Udet way back in 1939 with his A.S.1 circular wing flying aero model was given permission and some funding to build a manned large-scale version of his model. Sack took up the challenge and built four more models of increasing size.

When the A.S.5 demonstrated that the basic concept was sound, construction began on the manned version in early 1944 - the A.S.6.

Within a month the strange largely wooden aircraft utilizing salvaged parts from a Me Bf 109 was taxiing and making attempts to fly. But this project was doomed from the start with an underpowered engine and plagued by structural problems which meant that the aircraft could "hop" but never fly - even when a Me-163 Komet pilot based at Brandis AB gave it a try.

Like the chief test pilot, the Komet pilot suggested that the A.S.6 held potential if aerodynamically tested properly in a wind tunnel and handed over to Messerschmitt for improvement utilizing superior Me Bf 109 components and cannon. 

Had Sack listened instead of forging ahead on his own, the next design designated A.S.7V-1 might have become a formidable 500 mph fighter known under production as the Me-600 “Bussard“. 

Due to round-the-clock bombing by 1944 the SS was forced to try even more drastic measures, launching unmanned interceptor discs from German occupied territory. These discs were known as the "Feuerball" weapon, sometimes erroneously referred to as the mystery V-7 weapon or an aerial Flakmine. 

The WNF Feuerball relied on a flattened circular turbojet for launch, a plume sensor for aerial detection, and an electrostatic field weapon invented at Messerschmitt's Oberammergau facility for attack.

Production of these craft was initially performed by WNF under SS direction. Because the discs burned chemicals around its ring to create the electrostatic field necessary to disable Allied bomber engines and airborne radar the object was soon nicknamed the "Foo Fighter" by the Allies who sighted this fiery halo weapon approaching them by day or night.

"Foo" was a take on the French word Feu [Fire] and from the Smokey Stover comic of a bumbling fireman that actually started fires! His famous saying was, “where there’s Feu, there’s fire”, so the US nickname stuck. The British simply called them "Kraut Meteors". 

Naturally, WNF observed the burning effect too and officially named their weapon the WNF Feuerball [Fireball]. The "Feuerballs" plagued the 415th NFS and other Allied aircraft from November 1944 until April 1945. By that time production had been shifted to the Zeppelin Werke that named their enlarged improved weapon as the "Kugelblitz" [Ball Lightning]. These were launched form the Schwarzwald [Black Forest]. 

The Allies seemed confused by these weapons which ranged in size from small to large and attacked in singles or multiples. The Germans added to this confusion by introducing two other weapons with the Feuerball/Kugelblitz - the "Seifenblasen" and "Kugelwaffen".

"Seifenblasen" [Soap Bubbles] were large meteorological balloons trailing foil strips that confused Allied radar. Their large round shape and metallic coating reflected in daylight gave them the appearance of a shining globe mistaken for a Feuerball. Along with the Seifenblasen were launched purely spherical aerial probes that were used as psychological weapons. These "Kugelwaffen" [Ball Weapons] initiated in 1941 played aerial games with the Allied bomber gunners that would have in time distracted them from the real threat of larger approaching Kugelblitz discs.

Chronologically, the smaller Kugelwaffen seem to be the predecessors to the Feuerball as several are seen in 1942-43 photos taken over Japan as a technology transfer. The same type weapons weree also seen over Italian and German skies in 1944. 

Hermann Klaas worked on several of these remote-controlled objects and even the early Feuerball prototypes were nothing more than small silver jet discs launched off catapults and then remote-controlled to test Allied bomber crew responses to them.

But by the spring of 1945 the war was lost regardless and most of the remaining programs were halted. Henri Coanda had been arrested in Paris in 1940 and forced to work on a disc under SS supervision. His design for a lenticular disc that benefited from his own "Coanda Effect" was a masterpiece of jet disc design. But because it required twelve Jumo 004 jets to power the huge machine the project never got past the wind tunnel testing phase.

Likewise, Andreas Epp’s independent Omega Diskus which utilized two Pabst ramjets and eight Argus lift fans was also confined to 1/10th scale model testing. Epp would post-war help design the first Soviet jet disc aircraft in Pirna, East Germany in 1950. 

Dr. Alexander Lippisch, who had also studied disc aerodynes as far back as 1941, was too involved in the Me 163 Komet and DM-1 delta glider programs to produce anything more than brief disc design concepts for Messerschmitt based on the AVA Göttingen wind tunnel K 1253 circular wing profile. 

The Horten brothers, experts with flying wings, also studied circular wing designs but did not actually work on any in Nazi Germany.

They did so for the US Govt. post-war in 1946 at Wright Field designing what is now believed to be the craft that crashed at Roswell in 1947- a radar-absorbing spy craft parabolic lifting body carried by a large meteorological balloon similar to the Japanese FUGO type. 

In the face of imminent defeat BMW destroyed all their Flügelrads and possibly Schriever's Flugkreisel which was testing at the same facility - Prag-Kbley airfield.

Dr. Miethe's discs may have been captured as Dr. Miethe went to Canada post-war to work on AVRO's disc designs. Habermohl was captured by the Russians and worked on disc designs for them, while Dr. Belluzzo went back to Italy.

Schauberger's Repulsins were captured by the Russians while most of the SS Technical Branch records still intact were captured by the British who post-war attempted to create a working design through AVRO Canada with eventual US assistance.

Clever US Govt. infiltration tactics and funding withdrawal ensured that AVRO Canada’s German-based disc designs were abandoned there while AVRO Canada’s engineers were lured to the US to work on the first US jet discs, ironically built by a team led by Dr. Miethe himself. 

One very little known Peenemünde disc project under Henrich Fleissner was the last disc to take off from Berlin in late April 1945 on an official mission. But details of Göring‘s "Düsenscheibe" [Jet Disc] remain clouded in mystery. This is the only known Luftwaffe disc program which originated with Hermann Göring and assembled at Peenemünde.

Lippisch P.01-111


Just as baffling is the late war DFS Berserker Mistel combination that combined a project jet bomber with a liquid explosive laden disc guided by television control and powered by a mass of staggered Argus 044 pulse jets. Only the television guidance system test aircraft was nearing completion when the war ended. 

The Mistel [Misteltoe] composites were ultimately born of desperation due to Allied numerical superiority in both men and material. To turn the tide of battle the German aircraft industry resorted to designing unmanned explosive-laden aircraft launched and controlled by a parent aircraft. 

As the war progressed the concept gradually shifted from an offensive weapon to a purely defensive weapon.

Mistel attacks were made with a variety of different combinations of fighters and bombers with little or no effect on the war situation in 1944-45.

In 1945, as collapse was near, frantic attempts were made to knock out German bridges to prevent the Allies from crossing over. The earlier propeller type Mistel combinations were now in a second generation phase of development with various German aircraft manufacturers proposing jet versions involving the use of  Ar-234, He-162, Me-262, Ju-287 and other project jet fighter and bombers for faster, more deadlier combinations.

In the spring of 1945, just before the last Mistel attack on 16 April 1945, DFS [ Deutsche Forschungsanstalt für Segelflug] was working on an improved television guidance system for these aircraft.

DFS primarily researched and built glider craft, advanced rocket powered craft, and performed design studies on various wing shapes.

They also were working with largely wooden construction in 1945 due to lack of strategic materials and continuing sailplane research. However, the demand for Mistel combinations included almost every German aircraft manufacturer or research facility and DFS was no exception. Proposals were put forth for both the uncompleted DFS 228 and 346 rocket craft as Mistel aircraft.

The Beserker design [possibly designated DFS 360, referring to a 360 degree circle] was an odd combination of largely reinforced wooden construction disc, explosives, an array of Argus 044 pulse jets, and the application of television guidance.  It was to be roughly 30-40 meters in diameter, packed with liquid explosives, with the projected Argus 044 engines amassed to the rear of the craft.

The parent carrier aircraft was to be an un-designated large Project jet bomber, possibly designed by DFS as well [the projected DFS 464?]. Guidance would be via television control [with radio command back-up] on top in a faired housing unit with the liquid explosives located near the front rim of the disc, multiple fuel tanks in a radial pattern inside the disc.

The name Berserker came from the anticipated noise of six running pulse jets roaring at the same time - enough to drive anyone crazy and also of some value as a terror instrument like the Stuka air sirens of 1939. 

Once the Berserker was ignited and released at low altitudes, the screaming pulse jets of 6,606 lb total thrust would push the disc dive bomber into speeds well over 600 mph.

A direct hit from the Berserker would involve not just the liquid explosive destructive effect but the remaining fuel detonation as well. The anticipated result from the explosion would be the equivalent of a fuel-air bomb with utter devastation.

If this would have worked it could have been the deadliest Mistel combination yet.

No work was known to have been started on the disc but the television guidance system was being perfected when the war ended. 

A test aircraft had been prepared but it was destroyed by fire before trials could begin. Due to the disc design acting as another unstable wing above the bomber, a solid mounting was proposed with possibility of a rotating turntable to launch the weapon in any direction.

Dr. Mario Zippermayr’s fascination with coal dust explosives led to a radical disc aircraft called the “Feuersturm” [Firestorm] that was designed to created a spinning fire tornado into the path of Allied bombers but the proposal came during the collapse.

Göring placed an order for coal dust Flak shells in March 1945 but none were delivered.

It is interesting to note that the SS took Zippermayr’s coal dust Flak shells and added a re-agent to the mix which could have been a Nazi Superbomb equal in devastation to the Atomic Bomb.

The re-agent, mixed with LOX and coal dust would create both an initial firestorm and then a freak lightning storm at ground level.

This would consume all the air and burn everything, people and all matter in a 4.5 km radius.

Plans to build such a bomb at the Jonastal S-3 complex and new Hitler HQ failed as the complex was not completed in time. 

Manwhile, the Feuerball attacks that stopped in April 1945 in Germany resumed in August 1945 in Japan - another obvious technology transfer from Germany to Japan via U-Boot.

The Japanese, however, lacked all the documentation for this weapon and only launched a few after fueling them and igniting them.

It is said that the Japanese were frightened by this "demonic thing" and destroyed the remaining Feuerballs by dynamiting them together in a large pit after VJ-Day. Photographic evidence also seems to identify "Kugelwaffen" sent to Japan as several are seen trailing Sally bombers, probably for flight testing. 

But the Third Reich story ends as strangely as it had begun. What about the mysterious Thule-Vril discs which were actually built in small numbers during the war?

By 1945 there were quite a few Haunebu and Vril 7 Geist [Spiri] discs flying. Vril had even tested the Vril 8 Odin and possibly even the more streamlined Vril 9 Abjäger, which appeared over occupied German skies. Designs for even more exotic Vril 10 Fledermaus [Bat] and Vril 11 Teufel [Devil] discs were to be destroyed but several technical documents of them were discovered.

Vladimir Terziski introduced the names "Haunebu" and "Vril" in the 1990's, as well as Nazi flights to Mars and the Moon.

In "Man-Made UFOs 1944 – 1994, 50 Years of Suppression" by Renato Vesco and David Hatcher Childress, Hatcher-Childress adds a completely uncritical republication of assorted crackpot photos and speculations of his own. His 'Summary of the Claims and Evidence' has some familiar elements:.

“After various experimental prototypes, including the rocket powered Miethe and Schriever discs, production began on the small ten meter diameter interceptor-fighters of the Vril series. The larger Haunibu series began with the 25 meter Haunibu 1 and2. These craft had canons mounted underneath and were designed as 'tank Killers'.

"The 74 meter Haunibu-3, designed as an anti-shipping craft for use over long distances, was actually built and tested. It had inflatable rubber cushions on the underside for landing. 

"The 300 meter Haunibu-4 was on the design board for interplanetary travel. It was disc shaped and could also carry several of the smaller Vril craft. Also reportedly in the design stage was an immense 330 meter cigar-shaped battleship.

"Towards the end of the war, the Germans had developed interplanetary craft with no moving parts which were capable of going to the Moon or even Mars”.

Larger still was the 139 meter long Andromeda Gerät - a huge mothership designed to carry one large Haunebu and two Vril discs in two bays built into the side of the craft. One of possibly two was discovered in 1945 by US Army troops in a well-camouflaged above ground shelter. It was semi-completed but due to forced evacuation both the sensitive navigation gear and propulsion systems were removed from the giant. The other cylindrical craft is assumed to have already departed, but to where?

The Andromeda Gerät was designed as a Raumschiff [Spaceship] with propulsion combining four of Thule’s revolutionary Triebwerks with sixteen Vril SM-Levitators.

One craft spotted over Germany at the end flew at incredible speed with a blinding light emitting from its tail worrying Allied Intelligence teams that the Germans might have developed a form of photonic drive. The rest of the Haunebu and Vril craft were not destroyed but quickly evacuated from March 1945 to an area safe from Allied bombing or capture. 

In the year preceding the start of WW2, Germany sent an expedition to Antarctica to scout out a location for a military base.

The Germans found such a location in the former Queen Maud Land which Germany renamed Neu Schwabenland [New Swabia]. There, in secret during 1942-43, a base was built in the Mühlig-Hoffman Mountains, just inland from the Princess Astrid Coast. Base 211 [or Station 211]. The base was supplied with slave laborers shipped by sea and U-Boats to construct an elaborate cave complex deep within the mountains - an impregnable fortress. Hot internal springs were found there, iron ore deposits, vegetation, and access was achieved primarily through an underwater trench that ran through the area.

During the war, especially the latter part, German U-Boats made frequent trips to the South Atlantic, South America, and Antarctica. Germany also set up floating meteorological buoys in Antarctic waters and weather stations on islands located between Antarctica and the tip of Argentina at Tierra del Fuego [Fire Island]/ 

The last messages from Bormann and Göbbels in the Führer Bunker were sent to Tierra del Fuego, which is a mystery in itself. 

The SS RuSHA [Rasse und SiedlungsHauptamt- Race and Settlement Main Bureau] began in 1942 to take women of Aryan decent [Volksdeutsche] from the Ukraine solely for the purpose of transporting them to Base 211.

Ten thousand women between the ages of 17-24, blonde and well proportioned, were recruited for the project along with 2,500 Waffen SS soldiers serving in Russia. The women were known as the ASF "Antarktische Siedlung Frauen" [Antarctic Settlement Women] and wore a specific light blue form-fitting jacket with SS Odal Rune insignia and an A-line skirt with the hem below the knee.

About half of the female recruits were ethnic Germans while the others were Ukrainians upgraded to full Aryan status through the “Germanization” process. An ASF training camp was secretly set up in Estonia for proper training in polar survival and as a boot camp meant to teach what was expected to ensure that the German colony could sustain life and grow. 

Acceptable recruits were returned to the Ukraine then taken from the Poltava railway station to transport ships and U-Boats awaiting them. This massive undertaking was to create a colony at Base 211 suitable for the habitation and continued development of the Thule-Vril technology.

With an initial population of tens of thousands and an SS Lebensborn program instituted along with slave laborers and thousands of technicians, scientists, and specialists there is good reason to suspect that life did in fact survive under the ice. 

It is therefore highly ironic that Antarctica has a treaty banning weapons and weapons testing when right under the ice could be an vast arsenal from a new Reich waiting to emerge from isolation. Perhaps many of the Neu Schwabians have already left and helped colonize parts of South America - all part of the Wilhelm Canaris-Vril “Z-Plan” [Zukunft, or Future Plan] to start again having never surrendered in 1945. Perhaps nuclear weapons are with them also.

The Germans that escaped Europe have populated parts of South America in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and Brazil and maintain strong business contacts with reunified Germany. 

That is why the Kriegsmarine kept such a large number of U-Boats in the South Atlantic during the latter part of the war, especially the Type IXc large transport U-boats nicknamed “Überseekuh“ [Overseas Cow]

It is believed that both the Thule and Vril Gesellschafts evacuated that technology to Base 211 at the close of the war under SS General Hans Kammler, who was in charge of Germany's most secret weapons development programs. The occult discs were to have been produced in the massive Jonastal S-3 complex under construction, but the time had simply run out, and the complex remained unfinished by war's end.

However, during construction from late 1944 until March 1945 the complex was never bombed even once, despite the huge strategic facility with thousands of scientists and technicians located there and 18,000 slave laborers performing construction. The reason the Allies failed to bomb this location was that a large Bunker installation below one of the complex sections contained an EM [Electro-Magnetic] discharge weapon able to produce a force field seven miles around the complex up to a height of 30,000 ft. Allied aircraft that attempted to photograph or bomb the site experienced extreme difficulty with their engines cutting out. A similar effect happened on the ground with military vehicles and engines, so they were kept off during operations. 

Two U-Boats that surrendered after the war in Argentina [U-530 and U-977] are also believed to have carried cargo and high-ranking SS to Base 211. Both boats were largely empty upon surrender with the crews refusing to accurately disclose their cargos and destinations. Argentine waters had been a safe haven for the U-Boats during the war, but the US Govt. put tremendous pressure on Argentina to hand over the missing U-Boats for information on Kammler’s whereabouts and Base 211. 

It became apparent in 1946 that 54 U-boats and over 6,000 technicians and scientists were "missing" from Germany - especially from the SS Technical Branch.

There were also 40,000 slave laborers and between 142,000-250,000 German citizens unaccounted for.

Despite simply writing these off as probable losses and deaths of the war, Washington suspected that a large number of these missing actually escaped to South America and Base 211 [if such a base existed].

The United States then went on the hunt using the "war criminal" propaganda to cover up the search for technology akin to a South American version of "Operation Paperclip".

he United States was so concerned about the secret base that in 1947 with the first Antarctic summer "Operation Highjump" was launched with a full military task force headed by Admiral Byrd. The task force was to head straight for Antarctica and recon the area for a base. If one was found 4,700 armed troops would have been sent to capture or destroy it. The task force performed the aerial recon, trailing magnetometers to detect any magnetic anomalies under the ice -. but several of Byrd's planes were lost. The aircraft had run into enemy opposition. 

"Operation Highjump" ended in failure as Byrd headed back after several weeks, far short of the eight months that was intended. 

Subsequently, the modern UFO phenomenon sprang up in 1947 and concentrated disc development programs were initiated in the 1950s that have continued on to the present-day - "Black Project" [a.ka SAP, Special Access Program] aircraft operated by the CIA, NSA, and NRO.

Even the Federal Republic of Germany might also have retained Thule and Vril technology as photos have emerged since the late 1970’s of designated Bundeswehr discs FU-1 and FU-2 Fliegende Untertassen 1 and 2]  

For decades after Nazi Germany surrendered under Hitler-appointed Reichsführer Karl Dönitz, many strange sightings of Vril and Haunebu-type craft.

Unknown types of Aircraft and U-Boats have appeared in South American skies and waters.

Some of the U-Boats bear a strong resemblance to the last  type under construction in Germany - the Type XXVI.

Plans were sent by sea to Neu Schwabenland for their construction.

There is also the mysterious case of Hitler’s U-Boat, a Type XIb that has no official record of completion.

The first sub of this type, U-112 has been named as the only Type XIb completed and for secrecy sake kept unrecorded.

The large 3,600 ton U-Boat was larger than any other U-Boat type and faster at 23 knots.

It is distinguished by two massive turrets on the deck with four 127mm guns and was designed to carry a collapsible aircraft- an Arado 231.

It was code-named "Der Schwarze Ritter” [The Black Knight] and was kept during the war at neutral ports in Spain before a special mission in late 1944.

It was not heard of again until it was discovered in 1993 off Cape Cod.

It was apparently sunk before its mission was accomplished - it now known as CA-35 after the German naval chart location system. 

It is believed that the U-Boat carried agents representing the Reich and large amounts of Reichsgold to be used for the future funding of a Fourth Reich.

The boat was also designed to carry double a standard U-Boat crew with provision for carrying material and special commandos. For this secret mission Brandenburg Commandos were reputed to be onboard, working secretly for the Abwehr and IG Farben‘s secret NW-7 industrial spies. 

The Type XI U-Cruisers were huge U-Boats, designed in 1937-1938, with 4 127mm deck guns in two gun-towers [one fore and aft of the conning tower] and  6 torpedo tubes [4 in the bow and two at the stern], all below the CWL). One Ar 231 small aircraft was in a watertight 2.6m in diameter container shaft.

These boats were to have a crew of about 110 men almost double that of any constructed German U-Boat.

4 contracts [U-112 thru U-115] were awarded to the AG Weser yard in Bremen on 17  January 1939,  but cancelled at the outbreak of war in September that year and none of the boats had been laid down at the time [some sources mention U-112 as being laid down]. 

These boats are often claimed to not only have been completed but sailed, usually on very clandestine missions and for good measure words like SS, Hitler, Bormann and the like are thrown into the mix

All official histories of  Type XI-B U-Boats, state that this vessel type was never built.

Numerous publications indicate that the design went only as far as preliminary "keel laying" at the building yards of Deschimag - A.G. Weser in Bremen, Germany, however, there is a subtle hint that at least one vessel of this type was indeed launched from the Deschimag yards.

Within the records of the Military archive at Freiburgim-Breisgau, Germany is a brief mention of "actual" yard trials in the Weser River of the Type XI U-Cruiser. 

It attained a surface speed of 26 knots. 

This is supported to some degree by Eberhard Rössler's "The U-Boat", where this trial record is partly quoted.

Amplified reports obtained from interviewed veterans of both the Allied and Axis Intelligence services indicate very strongly that at some point during its existence, most probably in early 1944, the Type XI was berthed at the supposedly neutral ports of Vigo, Spain and Lisbon, Portugal on the Iberian Peninsula, before being handed over to the Abwehr Bremen sub-branch, until ultimately being transferred to Gdynia just prior to her last voyage.

These same sources have stated that the unofficial reference to the Type XI was "Der Schwarze Ritter" [The Black Knight].

There is no "official" documentation of this but the sources seem reliable.

Of primary importance in connection with this area are the German series of Special Operations known as "Jolle",  and "Aktion Feuerland".

These two operations were intended to pave the way for German post-war survival. Noted Nazi leaders and war criminals were in the process of laying the financial foundation for a "Fourth Reich" within the borders of such countries as Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay and, most importantly for reasons of easy access, Argentina.

Operationally, the German U-Boat force still managed to keep its U-Boat fleet somewhat active during the summer and fall of 1944.

On 20 August 1944, the U-1229 was intercepted on the surface off the Grand Banks by an American "Hunter-Killer" Naval Task Force as it was proceeding to the American coast on a "spy-insertion" operation. The U-1229 went down with about one-third of her crew, but 41 survivors of this sinking were rescued as prisoners of war by the American destroyers on the scene.

What was not known by most military men at this time, however, was the fact that the Type XI U-Boat was also proceeding to the American coast - at that time located only 20 nautical miles distant from the U-1229 at the time of the latter's demise.

Of particular note are the individual operations of German corporations. Firms such as I.G.Farben and Krupp Industries were known to have liquidated their stock holdings into either gold coin or bars by June of 1944 in anticipation of secreting these hard assets into the neutral countries of Switzerland, Lichenstein, Portugal and, most importantly - Argentina.

Post-war records confirm that many millions worth of negotiable securities did make it to these estates via U-Boat transport for eventual deposit in the German controlled banks of Banco Aleman Transatlantico and Banco Tornquist.

With the options rapidly narrowing, drastic measures were being planned. In September of 1944 a much delayed Finnish Intelligence report surfaced referring to a "Hitler Escape Boat" being made available at the port of Danzig, Poland as of early July.

When one studies the details mentioned in this report there is only one possible conclusion: The alleged "Hitler Escape Boat" is none other than the Type XI-B U-Cruiser... the same vessel which is not supposed to exist.

The long paper trail shows that this vessel departed the port of Danzig [Gdynia], on the afternoon of 20 July 1944 - the same day as the assassination attempt on Adolf Hitler by the Nazi-Opposition. Records also indicate very strongly that the German Industrialists were behind the deployment of the Type XI-B U-Boat.

The vessel's designation as a "Hitler Escape Boat" was apparently a cover story for the benefit of the Nazi-Opposition.

Why did it deploy at this particular time?

There was the need of the Industrial Opposition for a two-fold mission: to negotiate an acceptable armistice directly with U.S. representatives and to export to Argentina at least a portion of the German corporate securities. Thirty-Seven days later the Type XI-B U-Cruiser arrived off the Massachusetts coast - committed to her clandestine mission.

Bf 25 August 1944, along the Eastern Sea Frontier,  the U.S. Office of Naval Intelligence had been continuously briefed over the past few days by the British Admiralty "ULTRA" of an "Unknown" U-Boat heading their way.

On 15 August Admiraltyhad informed U.S. Navy "COMINCH" [Commander-In-Chief], that a U-Boat they had designated as "LT" was heading across the Atlantic and that they suspected it was on a "Special Mission" since it was observing radio silence and not reporting its daily position, as was the normal routine among U-Boat Commanders of the time.

On  17 August British Admiralty appears to be reasonably sure that the mystery vessel was bound to the American coast.

By the early evening of 25 August. the Type XI was successful in evading the U.S. Naval Task Forces east of the Grand Banks, as she surfaced at approximately 16:00 hours.

Due to a sighting by a commercial Pan-Am Plane at this time, the Naval Airship Squadron 'ZP-11' based at South Weymouth, MA orders the Naval Airship "K-25" to divert from its escort patrol and to investigate the reported sighting. Local vessels of the Northern Ship Lane Patrol are also ordered to the scene.

At this same time O.N.I. Telegrapher Preston Howley was monitoring the U-Boat's wireless transmission from the Office of Naval Intelligence Radio Intercept Station located at Chatham, Cape Cod. According to Howley, the transmission was originating from a very close location on a "diplomatic B-Bar" signal. This meant that this particular German U-Boat was sending diplomatic messages in a "High Priority" status, which fits the established facts. 

Veteran interviews have revealed that the subject U-Boat was actually sunk by the Naval Airship "K-25", with the small surface vessels conducting a 48 hour surface search for survivors and debris. The official records certainly tend to support the follow-up search for debris, often termed as a "Yankee Search".

Unfortunately, only a further declassification of existing "Operational" documents would provide additional insight into exactly what happened and how it happened.

With an initial population of tens of thousands and an SS Lebensborn program instituted along with slave laborers and thousands of technicians, scientists, and specialists there is good reason to suspect that life did in fact survive under the ice in Antartica. 

It is therefore highly ironic that Antarctica has a treaty banning weapons and weapons testing when right under the ice could be an vast arsenal from a new Reich waiting to emerge from isolation.

Perhaps many of the Neu Schwabians have already left and helped colonize parts of South America - all part of the Canaris-Vril “Z-Plan” [Zukunft, or Future Plan] to start again having never surrendered in 1945. Perhaps nuclear weapons are with them also.

The Germans that escaped Europe have populated parts of South America in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and Brazil and maintain strong business contacts with reunified Germany.

Postwar Odessa operated from South America while SS-led Werewolf terrorists resisted Allied occupation for two years before giving up.

At Base 211 it has been claimed that all of the Reich’s most secret weapons programs were transferred there: missiles, submarines, jets, and other weaponry that may have been advanced considerably by now if there is a colony still surviving there under two miles of solid ice. 

Who knows what technology might emerge one day from there and if their Vril leaders will return from Aldebaran in strength. 

So the story of the Third Reich disc programs does not end with the collapse of the Third Reich itself. It continues unresolved......
