Nazi Mega Weapons In his quest for German control of Europe, Hitler demanded some of the biggest and deadliest pieces of military hardware in history. In this series, the shock and awe tactics of the Blitzkrieg, the unparalleled fortifications on The Channel Islands, Hitler's mountain power-house, topped by the awe inspiring Eagle's Nest and the Fuhrer's Megasub - a weapon that could have won the war for the Nazis - are all explored. The remains of these terror weapons and incredible defensive structures are spread across Europe, although it can take a specialist to spot the evidence.
Nazi Mega Weapons follows a team of experts on a dark journey of exploration through Europe's mountains, forests and industrial heartland to uncover a Nazi world that has been hidden for decades. Using drama reconstructions, carefully crafted CGI and rarely seen archive, each episode reveals the personal stories of the men who designed, built and operated Hitler's terrifying mega weapons.
In addition, in a bid to dominate the Pacific, Japan built the biggest battleship in the world and a network of defensive lines, bunkers, and fortifications across the island of Okinawa. Our experts track down evidence of these weapons of terror.
