Nazis on Drugs

Post by Winnow »

I watched this documentary.

https://www.history.com/specials/nazis- ... blitzkrieg

It says it premiers July 28th but I downloaded it somewhere.

Actually quite an interesting documentary. I hadn't thought about the drug use during World War II but apparently almost the entire German Army was hopped up on meth which contributed to their initial Blitzkrieg (lightening warfare) fast invasion of several countries at the beginning of World War II. 35 million meth pills were distributed to the German Army, thanks in part from Hitler being pissed thinking that Jesse Owens was on drugs because otherwise he couldn't have beaten the master race during the 1936 Olympics.

The allies later on jumped in with millions of speed pills ordered by Eisenhower.

The documentary also covers Hitler's heavy used of drugs. The guy was on everything. Started out slowly but by the end of the war he was taking all sorts of drugs. He pretty much got a shot of something every day during the entire war.

Worth a watch if you get the History channel of find it through other means.
