Watch on WMHT-TV

In the quest for world domination, the Nazis built some of the biggest and deadliest pieces of military hardware in history. This series includes episodes on Hitler's Megasubs, Blitzkrieg warfare and fortifications on The Channel Islands. They were all part of the Fuhrer's plan to control a nation, conquer a continent and secure world domination. Today the remains of these incredible projects can still be found if you know where to look. Nazi Mega Weapons follows a team of experts on a dark journey through Europe's mountains, forests and industrial heartland to uncover engineering secrets that have lain hidden for decades. Using drama reconstructions, carefully-crafted CGI and rarely seen archive, each episode also unravels the personal stories of the men who designed, built and operated Hitler's terrifying mega weapons.

In the quest for world domination, the Nazis built some of the biggest and deadliest pieces of military hardware and malevolent technology in history. With brilliant, dark minds and a legion of captive labor at their disposal, the Nazis believed the path to ultimate victory was to out-build and out-engineer their enemies. To them, bigger definitely meant better, and better meant more lethal. As Hitler's grip on Europe tightened, he ordered men like Wernher von Braun, Ferdinand Porsche and Alfried Krupp to build increasingly outlandish machines and structures to realize his master plan. This is World War II told from a new perspective. This series uncovers the engineering secrets of three iconic mega structures, tells the stories of the evil geniuses that designed them and reveals how these structures sparked a technological revolution that changed warfare forever.
