TITLEHitler's Scientists: Science, War and the Devil's Pact
CITYNew York, NY

This book examines the effect of the Nazi regime on science and technology in Germany. It begins with the rich legacy of achievements Hitler inherited and shows how his oppression of Jewish scientists and insistence on compliance to the Nazi regime stifled further advancements. The failure of Germany to mount a serious effort to product an atomic bomb is explored. Several chapters look at the controversial role of Werner Heisenberg in that effort. The book also explores the fates of the scientists who remained in Germany during World War II, and it describes activities in medicine, chemistry, aviation, and rocketry. The work relies on earlier works by David Cassidy and Mark Walker on German science before and during World War II.
