This frightening book shows how Hitler and Himmler infected the Nazi Party with the dangerous belief that, through occult skills, the 'master race' could gain dominion over the world. Every dictatorship requires a justification, either historical or moral, and Hitler rooted his in anti-scientific mumbo-jumbo, Wagnerian legend and Satanism. Michael FitzGerald's chilling investigation reveals that Hitler consulted Nostradamus before taking key military decisions; that the Thulists, a weird sect which practised human sacrifice and sexual perversions, founded the German Workers Party; and, that black masses were conducted for an elite SS corps at a 'Black Camelot' in Wewelsberg. The Nazi's even had their own occult bureau, the Ahnenerbe, whose research into bizarre cosmological theory, astrology and UFO's exhausted more funds than America's atom bomb. Against this powerful armoury of evil was ranked the benevolent magic of the Allies, both at government and individual level. Psychic advisers were employed by both Stalin and Churchill, and the latter even held high-level talks with the occultist Aleister Crowley. White witches, meeting in the New Forest, attempted to thwart 'Operation Sealion' (Hitler's planned invasion) through coven rituals. In the United States, moreover, whilst research into 'mind control' was vigorously pursued, the government, in a shadowy affair known as the Philadelphia Experiment, attempted to dematerialize one of their own submarines. Michael FitzGerald goes behind the war's public events to reveal a hidden agenda of psychic conflict, fought at the highest level.Über den Autor:
