Review by Rumgoat
A fun book if you're into WWII history and speculative fiction. The real history of failed WWII inventions and what might have happened if these war machines were deployed in combat.
Review by badgenome
A look at some of World War II's most unorthodox inventions, most of which weren't cut out for prime time. Or any other time. As you might expect, the Nazis, driven as they were by increasing desperation, completely dominate this collection of madcap machinery. The writing and humor are a bit spotty, but overall it's pretty amusing.
Review by Emchampi
A fun an humors book based off inventions that almost were, could have been, and were just a dream during the war-machine that was World War II. This book pairs interesting facts with speculative fiction that tells the story about how these weapons of war could have been. The book varies in content from night vision on weapons to Nazi Space stations that seem straight out of an alternate history science fiction movie. This book is fun to read for history buffs and for alternate history fans.
