"The play 's the thing wherein I'll catch the conscience of the king". -- Hamlet Act II, Scene II, William Shakespeare
Deep in the icy waters off Norway lies one of the last great secrets of the Second World War. In February 1945, the German submarine U-864 disappeared without trace during its clandestine journey to Japan. On board: eighteen of the Reich's leading aeronautical scientists, two of Japan's leading experts on aerodynamics, stacks of blueprints for the Nazi's Me 262 fighter jet as well as some of the latest Messerschmitt jet engine parts and missile guidance systems. Had the German submarine arrived at its destination, the Nazi's revolutionary jet technology might have changed the course of the Second World War, tipping the balance in favour of the Japanese Air Force in its desperate struggle against the U.S. Navy.
Hitler, if he had more patience, could have made the deadliest weapons on the planet but he was too high most of the time and let himself for idealism rather than logic that was his downfall and thank goodness for it.
