The Last Great Secret of the Third Reich
Coauthored with Arthur Naujoks, this is the true story of a Nazi submarine captain and a Luftwaffe general who defied Nazi orders and delivered their nuclear payload to the Americans instead of the Japanese—a course of action that very well may have changed the outcome of the war in the Pacific, saved millions of lives, and altered the course of modern history; a story lost in top secret files and documents until now.
