‘The Hunt for Hitler’s Scientists’ show how The British, American, and Russian governments sent covert teams of commandos and agents ahead of the front lines and deep into Germany, hunting for both the weapons and the scientists and engineers who’d created them.

Allied agents were asked to focus their efforts on three key Nazi technologies: The V-2 Rocket, The Messerschmitt 163 Komet and The Atomic Bomb.

The British and American operatives feared that if they didn’t capture the Nazi technology and scientists, agents of the burgeoning Soviet Union might – and that could spell disaster in a post-war world already feeling the chill of the impending cold war.
