Description

What would have happened if the Nazi’s developed ‘THE BOMB’ first?
Based on real events. If German scientists had developed nuclear fission first, the world would be changed.
What if? Actually, German scientists were far ahead of the United States in creating the first atom bomb. It was only through the daring exploits of brave men and women that the US succeeded in obtaining the first nuclear weapon and saved the world from being subject to German Nazi rule. Hitler, driving his scientists to extraordinary means, almost achieved domination over all mankind. The thought of such a ruler is chilling, yet could well have come to past.

Based on actual events, Ferran draws the reader into the frightening concept that such a possibility did in fact take place and a few men and women were faced with the ultimate sacrifice. Could such a possibility exist today?

Description

Rudolf Eineger was left with his finger inside a dead body. Repulsed, he withdrew it and wiped it on the black SS tunic.

Richard Earlgood, maverick RAF fighter pilot, and Michael Dorfmann, an ambitious Luftwaffe double-agent, plan a daring daylight attack on Adolf Hitler using Hurricane fighters, piggy-backing on 4-engine Stirling bombers to reach the almost completed… impregnable… Führer Bunker in this WWII fiction book.

Anna Styles, a Station X decoder, had a romance with Dorfmann at Oxford and is being forced to ‘handle’ the double-agent. She still loves Dorfmann but she has fallen for Richard too. This single raid to bomb Hitler’s Bunker could win the war, but only one man can win Anna’s heart.

Most of Hitler’s staff simply don’t believe such a raid is possible but one ruthless SS officer will stop at nothing to catch Dorfmann and defeat the British.

Men, machines and passions will be stretched to the limits,

in a raid…

that will shape…

History.

Attack Hitler’s Bunker! The RAF secret raid to bomb Hitler’s Berlin Bunker that never happened – probably.

Fans of 633 Squadron The Dam Busters, Valkyrie, The Eagle has Landed Where Eagles Dare or even the WWII simulation game War Thunder will love this white-hot roller-coaster wartime action thriller through the streets of Wartime Berlin on a bombing mission that will make your hair stand on end!

Operation Peppermint – The Allied Fear of Radiological Warfare in WW2

Operation Peppermint
The hazards posed to nuclear veterans – whether personnel (including down wind civilians) were present at Trinity, Hiroshima and Nagasaki (included the targeted civilians) or at nuclear test areas thereafter – were well known prior to the formation of Manhattan Project. Indeed, radiation sickness had been fully described by medical authorities in Europe and the US in the 1930s. The radium dial painters – their illnesses and suffering – were tracked by US authorities from the 1920s until the last worker died in the 1990s. (Being the first human radiation experiment conducted without victim permission.) Many such workers suffered decades of ill health, many died in the 20s and 30s.

Read more about WWII radiation experiments, including the project to build and detonate and Nazi Atomic Bomb in my forthcoming book: December Radio, to be published around 29 January 2016 by A-Argus.

Hunting Hitler
I just wanted to mention the excellent new History channel series Hunting Hitler. In short, last year the FBI released their own secret files detailing their attempts to locate Adolf Hitler after WWII. They did not believe the Russian story that Hitler and Eva Braun’s body had been burned in the Reich Chancellery garden and, to be fair, there has never been any solid evidence to support this claim.

It is well known that Hitler’s last public appearance was on 20 April 1945 and the FBI files show that 10 aircraft took off from Templehof airport (Berlin’s main airport) on the 21 April, one day later. What is more the manifests show many senior Nazis to be on board and also Hitler’s personal luggage. A few aircraft were shot down but at least one made it to the Baltic coast, where a U-boat could have been waiting. One other is rumoured to have landed in Spain (of course neutral and sympathetic to Hitler) although the radio messages were garbled on this matter.

The programme’s investigators used modern techniques starting with Means, Motive and Opportunity to suggest that Hitler could have made it at least as far as the nearest underground station to Templehoff on the 21 April. They then managed to locate a blocked up tunnel in hte basement of the airport which led toward the nearest underground station. They ended in Berlin with using hand held Ground Penetration Radar to locate a hollow wall (covering a blocked up tunnel?) precisely where they expected the tunnel to emerge.

In Spain they found further evidence that Nazi’s were active in a port called Vigo, in North West Spain, only a short distance from Franco’s personal retreat. A strange gantry for loading tungsten, of which the area is a major producer, remains next to the bridge and can be clearly seen on Google Earth. It could well serve to load raw materials onto submarines. Eye-witnesses talk of seeing U-boats docking for more than 3 months after hostilities ended, and it is well known that 46 U-boats were never accounted for.

Another team is attempting to locate a U-boat off the coast of Argentina, where a local Nazi had wool production company and owned a private bank. Eye witnesses report seeing a U-boat scuttled in the area in the summer of 1945.

Now, while all this is new and exciting and I have to admit, compelling given that Hitler was not a man to ‘give up’ easily, I have some reservations about this programme so far.

  • Firstly, Hitler didn’t kill himself (according to eye-witness accounts) until 30 April, almost ten days after the team said he could have left. Hitler still believed he could win at this point and I am not convinced he would have left so early.
  • Secondly, I have seen the eye-witnesses, who stayed with Hitler until the end, talking about what they saw. At all times they stare straight into the camera and look to me as if they are telling the truth. Would they really have been duped by a double?
  • Thirdly, possible the only exception to the ‘honest stare’ is Traudl Junge, Hitler’s last private secretary. She always maintained she had not known about evil’s perpetrated about Hitler’s regime. In early interviews she looks honest and open. However, in 2002 she was interviewed for the film Blind Spot: Hitler’s Secretary, when she already knew she was dying of cancer. She admitted in this film that she finally had realised her own guilt but could not come to terms with it. She does avoid eye-contact with the camera and this could be guilt. Would somebody finally admit to feeling guilty but still not admit that Hitler had escaped (if he had) once she knew she had nothing to lose and everything to gain by telling the truth?
  • Finally, Franco and Hitler did not like each other. Franco wouldn’t do what Hitler wanted and thought the German Dictator irritating. Would Franco really have hidden Hitler in his personal retreat?

It’s worth remembering that just because Hitler could have escaped, doesn’t mean he did. I await the rest of the series with interest.

Blog: Adolf Hitler: My Part in His Downfall

This week: Attack Hitler’s Bunker released and a sneak preview.

Attack Hitler’s Bunker
This book is now available as a kindle book on Amazon and will be available as a paperback in the next 6 days. Response has been good so far, plenty of people have responded to my posts and tweets: 190 people read the first post on Facebook which is a higher figure than in the past.

Sneak Preview
This week’s is from a story which I am provisionally calling December Radio (I might have referred to it in the past as September Radio but it’s just a working title). I am back working on this now and I will attempt to complete this before December. This book can best be described as WWII/sci-fi and is about a whole number of characters in the War gradually discovering a secret plot by some unknown enemy. They do this through evidence from a series of supernatural events. It’s quite an existential project.

07.56. The signal was not clear. Eric thought he might be dreaming. He tried to feel for the signal, twisting the knurled radio tuning knob. He watched the needle hover around 550KHz. Faint, but audible he heard again a Morse code signal: “May Day. May Day. KG100 1H H-Heinz, ditching seven miles north-west of Ostend.” Seven miles north-west of Ostend, and 100 feet beneath the bottle green North Sea swell, a conger eel settled back into the Daimler-Benz cowling on the Heinkel 111 H-Heinz, his home for the last two weeks. The decaying, pale corpses of the two crew members were unable to escape, then and now. They were wafted by the strong current, slow-motion dancers.

The farmer’s wife smelled, to her husband, of freshly baked bread. He nuzzled the nape of her neck. The howling wind, screaming across the Veldt was banished from this bedroom, as on many other nights, by the warmth of their love for each other. He slid his ham-hand under her night-dress and around her large, soft breast. She lifted her arm to grant him access.
“Are you asleep?” he whispered.
“No dear.”
Feeling himself stiffen, in response to the call from her timeless body, he eased up the hem of her dress – the one with pretty red flowers which had been a gift from her mother before her death, and placed his hand firmly on the her rounded haunch. His breathing quickened. Hers quickened in reciprocation.
“Can I?”
“Yes.”

I don’t know if the film in this week’s blog title is any good or not – I haven’t seen it, but I do know that Spike Milligan was a very funny man so this is my tribute to him.
