Sometimes you can find a real gem on eBay. The UK’s National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park certainly did: It spotted a Nazi teleprinter used during the war for sale on the site and bought it for just $15.
The V-3 “supergun” was meant to win the war for Germany. In 1943, for the first time since World War II began, Hitler was on the back foot. Allied bombs were devastating German cities and the Fuhrer was rattled. His proposed V-3 cannon would be the biggest gun the world had seen.
Austrian filmmaker Andreas Sulzer claims to have found Hitler's 'largest secret weapons research facility' following information contained in US intelligence reports describing a massive underground tunnel system excavated in granite near the Mathausen-Gusen concentration camp.
Robert S. Ballard and his team of ocean explorers have taken new crystal-clear photos of a Nazi submarine in the Gulf of Mexico, right off the Texas' shoreline: U-166 was one of the many Kriegsmarine U-boats that swam like sharks waiting for prey around the United States' coast. Admire it in all its decrepit glory—in…
It takes a very specific kind of sensibility to live in the ruins of monstrous regime, but art collectors Karen and Christian Boros have it. The couple and their kids live in a bunker with six-foot-thick concrete walls, originally built to hold 3,000 people during air raids in Berlin, in 1942.
Underwater missiles that could have hit New York, jet-powered bombers that were nearly impossible to intercept, sub-orbital bombers, vertical launch rocket fighters, or infrared visors are just a few of many in this definitive collection of incredible Nazi weapons. Be happy that those bastards never got to mass…
There's no doubt that technology has changed the field of archaeology in profound ways. New tools have taken archaeologists to places they couldn't go before and opened the door to countless new discoveries. They've also shed some light on some of the—err—more creative interpretations of artifacts.
Here's yet one more proof that Nazis—especially Goebbels—were not only disgusting bloody bastards but also cunning manipulators. Or perhaps stupid manipulators. Look at these propaganda leaflets that tried to convince American and British forces to desert by appealing to their most basic instincts.
Neo-Nazis in Germany were given free T-shirts at a recent right-wing extremist rock concert. The black shirt, complete with skulls and bones, said "Hardcore Rebels: National and Free". Too bad for them, there was a secret message hidden inside the shirt.
Like an Aryan Death Star, the Nazis' Gustav was the largest gun ever built and didn't leave much planet where it hit.
A photo album showing never-seen-before photos of Hitler and the Nazis has surfaced with photos dating back to 70 years ago. Its current owner has no clue who the photographer was, but judging by the level of access he was given, he must have been someone.UPDATED
The V-2 rocket terrorized the denizens of London throughout the end of World War II. The weapon, built by slave labor, struck the city over a thousand times, killing and injuring several thousand. After the war, it became America's toy.
Australian movie director Phillipe Mora discovered two 3D films made by Nazi propagandists dating back to 1936, which were lost in a dark corner of the Berlin Federal Archive. To achieve the effect, the directors apparently held a prism in front of two lenses.
There's such a thing as the Nazi Graphics Standards manual—it was first published in 1936—and someone found a copy. [Kottke]
Apparently, Google thinks that you're going to be more interested in Nazi zombies than Nazi Germany. Personally, the latter is enough to scare the hell out of me. Add this to the list of reasons why humanity is sick.
100 Nazi Scalps is a simple, cartoonish shooter that's incredibly addicting. Why? Because the premise of the game is to kill and scalp as many Nazis as possible. Yeah, it's just as fun as it sounds. It's also free right now.
This specially-created one-off steampunk gas mask was made from leather, brass, and a Soviet-era gas mask. What's special about this isn't that it looks incredibly creepy and incredibly cool, it's that it looks kinda similar to that Nazi villain from the first Hellboy movie. Maybe it's just us and our excitement for …
