Life Magazine’s Maps Of A Nazi Invasion Of America

The blog Ptak Science Books has an interesting slice of history: an extensive series of maps originally published in Life Magazine in 1942, detailing a number of ways in which the Axis powers could have successfully invaded the United States and taken over the country.

The companion article was titled “Now the U.S. Must Fight for Its Life” and intended to make readers consider the possibility of the United States losing World War II and falling under Nazi control. Thankfully, these are maps of a history that never occurred.

    It was pretty well know that the Germans had U-boats patrolling up and down the east coast.

    CIA, NASA, NSA, U.N. all these institutions had their share of Nazis working for them. Follow the money behind the rise of the 3rd Reich… Lots of it leeds all the way to Uncle Sam’s pockets!
