You know how you are in the express lane in the supermarket and you see a picture of (an obviously faked) "Batboy Living in a Cave" on the front cover? And even though you don't believe in it at all, you are compelled by strange supernatural forces beyond your control to read the article anyway - because, dear sweet heaven - what if there really IS a Batboy in that cave?!

Or... You are watching "Soylent Green" on late night T.V. and you think to yourself, "What if Soylent Green really IS

Довольно забавная криптоистория Второй мировой и Третьего райха — да-да, там про летающие тарелки нацистов и прочее увлекательное. Автор — фигура, как выяснилось, вполне потешная, бывший христианский теолог, спец по патерналистике (так, кажется, называется наука об отцах церкви?), впоследствии ушедший так далеко и глубоко, что даже уфологи считают его маргиналом.
Но мне (и любому, я думаю, прикладному пинчоноведу) она интересна, в первую очередь, потому, что может дать еще один ключ к «Радуге

I was tempted to shelve this as fantasy or sci-fi, but the author does intend it as a non-fiction book, so I went with that :) It took a while to read, as I put it down a few times to read other things when it was annoying me too much.

The first half of the book looks at the atomic weapons programme of the Nazis, and how advanced they may have been, as opposed to the position that Allied governments took at the end of the war. The second half looks at more esoteric weaponry that was being worked

Mr. Joseph P. Farrell could not have written a more banal book on such an phenomenal subject. Kudos to him!

Farrell is Adjunct Professor of Patristic Theology and Apologetics at California Graduate School of Theology, an unaccredited (AKA bullshit) Christian institution. It seems that Mr. Farrell has mastered the art of CON-artistry, just enough to make a career out of it.

Цікава книжка про таємниці нацистської Німеччини, наприклад, про роботу над створенням атомної бомби, дослідження окультних наук, подорожі до Антарктиди..
This book took me forever to get through, partially because I had to concentrate on reading books that needed to be returned to the library and partially due to Farrells dry writing style. A good portion of this book is Farrells claim that the Nazis had nukes. He shows a lot of interesting coincidences and circumstantial evidence but doesn't make a 100% convincing case either. There's also stuff on Nazi secret weapons programs, Nazi "UFOs", and even a little bit on the theories that are out ...more

A guilty pleasure. It did convince me that America most likely dropped a German atomic device weapon on Japan.

I'll jump right to the biggest problem with The Reich of the Black Sun - it's unintentionally pro-Nazi. The thesis of the book is that Nazi scientists when they discarded as "Jewish science" relativity were able to make incredible scientific and technological advances - including anti-gravity and perpetual motion machines that could power long-ranged submarines - even though the Nazis lacked the wealth and freedom of the West (and, particularly, the unbombed United States that benefited from the ...more

I had to give this five stars because the scholarship is immaculate and the conclusions are so mind blowing that it makes me think of the world in a whole new way.

That's a tall order.

I thought when I started reading it that it would be relatively historical WWII and post-war material in a dated period setting. The fact of the matter is that this is having a significant impact on the world today and may help explain a few of the things about our crazy modern politics.

I have to point out the

This book provides a fascinating exploration of Nazi war technology and what happened to it after the end of World War II. Some of the shocking revelations include the fact that the Nazis were more technologically advanced than the U.S. Furthermore, many of the Nazi scientists were brought to the U.S. and placed in the Paperclip program where their research continued.

Prior to reading this book, I had only briefly encountered some of these ideas. Now that I have a better understanding, I want to

he did a good job in calling attention to the fact that the Black Sun is a deeply occultic symbol and it is not by accident that Himmler happened to use it. When you start exploring those connections, others appear.

Also posits that the Nazis could have used a minor atomic weapon in the invasion of Russia. The theory works, though I suppose it is hard to prove at any rate.

Fascinating read!

If true and the author makes a good change the paradigm of the Allied postwar narrative. Great documentation and well thought out. Scary stuff.

I probably should have read this first instead of Brotherhood of the Bell first, but it is an amazing look at secret German World War II projects and operations.

Another good but not great look at the German scientific research spanning the years just before and after World War 2.

I will say that the man needs an editor, there are many typos in the book.

I did have a thin hope that this book would make an interesting case that the Nazi nuclear program was much further along than was ever admitted. A book that pushed the boundary on what is currently known would be great. I woul have even tolerated a book that pushed into flimsy revisionism. Unfortunately it all careens off the rails into batshit crazy.
The book is plausible on the material covering idea that Nazis and even Japan might have been further along on their atomic programs than we

Content is explosive!

An incredibly fascinating read hampered only by its amateurish grammar. It appears the manuscript was published directly from the author's personal typewriter. Sad, considering the importance of the books content.

When a person gets the big picture on the hidden history of our world, then Farrell's body of work can be fully appreciated.
Its not easy but its worth it.
Mainstream history is a grand lie.
Farrell is on the front line of disclosure.

Seems like a poorly scripted bad dream.

Where is any independent, factual, verifiable information to back up a lot of these wanderings. No other source seems to know about so many of these"facts".

If I knew more about physics I guess I could say one way or the other. One of the end hypotheses seems to be that Nazis are/were running secret projects out of Canada. Not really sure.
