Nazis wanted to use poisoned cigarettes

London - Released files from MI5 reveal that the Nazi Party tried to create poisoned cigarettes, chocolates, coffee, sausages and Naziswhisky against Allied leaders in order to win WWII. It has also been discovered that a Fourth Reich was planned following the war.
During World War Two, it was disclosed in the book “The Belarus Secret” that Nazi germ warfare scientists had experimented with poisonous ticks that would have been dropped from planes in order to spread extraordinary diseases. It never came to fruition, though.

Newly declassified files from Great Britain’s MI5 intelligence agency show that the Nazis intended to utilize unorthodox methods in the dying months of the war to win. Instead of winning the war on the battlefield, the Nazis used saboteurs, spies and poisonous food items, such as coffee, sausages and whisky, to murder the Allied leaders.

Poisoned foods

The mission was labelled Operation Pastorious after an early German settler in the United States. According to historian at Britain’s National Archives, Edward Hampshire, the mission was full of failures, bad luck and terrible planning, reports the Associated Press.

“It was not brilliantly planned,” said Hampshire. “The Germans picked the leader for this very, very poorly. He immediately wanted to give himself up.”

British soldiers were warned not to eat any food that was imported from Germany. All uneaten German sausages and chocolate were sent back to London and tested and examined.

The Nazi methods were discovered when four German agents were arrested in March 1945 in the northern region of France. The Nazi spies showed that the smallest insignificant action could lead to death, reports the Daily Mail.

For example, Nazi scientists created a powder that would be infused with poison and be applied to doorknobs, desks and other furniture. Furthermore, they designed a tiny pellet that would be dropped in an ashtray, which would be heated up by cigarette ash and give off a mist that would kill anybody nearby.

Failed attack on New York City, plans for Fourth Reich

In the middle of the war, a team of German saboteurs were sent to New York by U-boat. Its mission was to destroy the city’s infrastructure by blowing up Jewish-owned businesses, roads, dams, factories and others, according to the Australian.

Fortunately for the U.S. government, the mission was a complete failure due to the incompetence of the men involved. One of the German agents became intoxicated and told everyone in the bar that he was a Nazi spy. Another German agent attempted to surrender to the FBI – the FBI dismissed it and thought he was crazy.

According to the London Telegraph, SS officers divulged information that the Nazis planned for a Fourth Reich following the war. The international initiative was put forth to destabilize governments.

During a meeting in Western Germany, Nazi representatives said funds had already been planted in South America. In order to receive this money, “trustworthy key men” were living in Spain and Switzerland who could take out the money from certain “bankers.”

“Nowadays it’s easy to regard such schemes as impossibly far-fetched,” said MI5’s official historian, Christopher Andrew. “But at the time it was reasonable to believe that after the Allied victory there would remain a dangerous post-war Nazi underground which would continue a secret war.”
