At the start of WWII Nazi Germany stuns its enemies by unleashing a new form of warfare.

In a quest for world domination, the Nazis built some of the biggest and deadliest pieces of military hardware and malevolent technology in history. The series, "Nazi Mega Weapons," tells the story of Germany’s engagement in World War II from a unique perspective, uncovering the engineering secrets of iconic megastructures, telling the stories of the engineers who designed them and revealing how these structures sparked a technological revolution that changed warfare forever.

With historic footage, recreations of milestone moments and interviews with history, engineering and military strategy experts, the episodes recount the triumphs and blunders of the Third Reich.

“The scope of these projects and the superhuman efforts that brought them to fruition remains astonishing, even 70 years later,” said Executive Producer Simon Young. “We want viewers to understand the extraordinary lengths to which the Nazis went in order to realize their ill-fated dream of world domination. This was a fascinating era of history, made even more chilling by the fact that some many of these structures are still around today.”
