The documentary claims to have uncovered documents from Russian military intelligence which suggest that the bomb had already been tested.
Soviet officers are said to have written, ‘The Germans are in the throes of making and testing a new secret weapon, which has a large destructive force.
‘The available bomb has a diameter of 1.5 meters. It consists of interlocking hollow balls.’
Difficult to know these many years later if there was any truth to this statement by the German broadcaster ZDF? It could have been true, I’m just glad it never came to be or we would be living a a very different world today.
There is a record of a conversation towards the end of the war in which Hitler mentions that a new bomb has been tested by Germany in the middle of the Baltic Sea which was able to set fire to the trees along the coast of Finland. There was also an article published in a German scientific journal in June, 1945 (the war in Europe ended on May 8) which discussed the exact details of how an atomic bomb would work. The Allies also tested German grapes growing and found that they contained abnormally high levels of radiation, suggesting some artificial exposure. However, records of the conversation among German scientists detained in Britain after the German surrender report that on hearing of the atomic bomb being dropped on Japan, they all expressed incredulity.
God Bless and keep reading.
