What followed were German forces fighting to the death in the last few small pockets of land surrounding three ports: Libau in Kurland, Pillau in East Prussia, and Danzig at the mouth of the River Vistula. In the Kurland, German divisions became surrounded and fought a vicious defense until May 1945. Includes rare and unpublished photographs. $29.00 USD

Nazi UFOs: The Legends and Myths of Hitler’s Flying Saucers in WWII. Nazi UFOs tells the strange tale of how, following the first alleged flying saucer sightings made in the U.S.A. in 1947, a series of fantasists and neo-fascists came forward to create a media myth that the Nazis may have invented these incredible craft as a means for winning the Second World War, a plan which was tantalizingly close to completion before the Allies conquered Berlin in 1945. By contrasting the fake military-industrial pseudo-histories of Nazi UFO theorists with details of real-life Nazi aerospace achievements, the author demonstrates both how this modern-day mythology came about and how it cannot possibly be more than fractionally true. This fake alternative military history is laid out in full, including anti-gravity craft, a time-machine, star ship engines, and lightning weapons. $35.00 USD
