    SS man invalidated from front line service thanks to frostbite was now working as a switchboard operator. He connected Goring to Hitler. This is what he told his family.

    "Goring asked the Fuhrer for permission to use three special bombs but he refused. "If I use them in the east they w ill get us from the west," said the Fuhrer.

    Dirty bomb? I know the Nazis were far away from splitting the atom. From D-Day Through German Eyes Book 2 the last interviewee talked about thermobaric bombs which they almost used in Normandy but an allied artillery strike luckily knocked it out. What sort of secret weapon was Goring speaking of?

    It's from Fur Volk and Fuhrer by Erwin Bartmann.

    I just read that book and was thinking about posing the question here. Towards the end didn't he find out that they indeed had 5 of these bombs? There were terms that I have never encountered such as the Seydlitz truppen. I researched it and there was such a group. Interesting that I have never heard of them before.

    There is a note on page 231 that where another 1LAH told him there were nine but as to the type it remains unknown.

    BTW, I've heard of Seydlitz troopers before and am curious as to what happened to them post-war . German Democratic Republic (East Germany) as citizens or gulag?
