Hitler's Secret Atomic Bomb

This book asks a simple question. Did Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party he led create an Atomic bomb during World War 2? If the answer is yes, could it have been used against the allies.

Absolute proof exists that Nazi Germany was actively trying to create atomic an weapon. But only circumstantial evidence exists that the Nazis managed to create and test a weapon.

Tom Kane, whose father was a Nazi hunter at the end of World War 2, examines the truth and the hearsay and comes to a disturbing conclusion.

A Very Simple History of World War 2: The Quickest and Easiest Way to a General Understanding of the Second World War

"The Quickest and Easiest Way to a General Understanding of The Second World War"

A Very Simple History of World War 2 is a simple, quick, and easy way to making sense of The Allies, and The Axis Powers, and how two seemingly separate wars converged to be one of the largest-scale wars in human history.

This brief and simple history seeks not to explore all of the details or the impacts of the war (in fact, this book intentionally omits them), but rather to summarize its general historical mile markers.

This is NOT an academic work, but if you are looking to gain a basic literacy of this historical time, then this book is perfect for you. We'll stick to answering the more fundamental questions such as:

Why did Japan bomb Pearl Harbor in the first place?

Why were we agreeable to fighting along side Josef Stalin?

Why was the Invasion at Normany such an important part of the war?

How was Italy and Mussolini involved in all this?

Written in the tempo that Grandpa used to use when answering all your childhood questions, this book will get you from "I've heard of it" to "Yeah, I know what happened" in a single sitting.
