Weird War II read/watch/play list (updated 3/22/13)
« on: April 01, 2012, 07:17:53 AM »
Weird War II stuff tends to span a few broad sub-genres:

 - Occult: factions of the war engaging in "dark arts" in order to harness supernatural powers for various purposes. Summoning demons from hell, acquiring holy relics, attempting to access other dimensions, or using other forms of "arcane knowledge", etc. Some of this has basis in fact - Nazi Germany had several occult groups of which many prominent Nazi officials were members, and they legitimately believed they could tap into hidden knowledge of the supernatural in order to help them win the war. Expeditions were actually sent to locate relics around the world.

 - Super-science: Scientific breakthroughs were plentiful during the war, but what if the factions were equipping really weird shit? Particle weapons, teleportation, flying saucers, time-travel, freakish medical experiments, etc. Again this has some basis in fact - as the war continued (and especially as Germany got more and more desperate) scientists engaged in increasingly off-the-wall experiments and ideas. There was a great deal of experimental technology that didn't get past the drawing board for various reasons - lack of funding, materials, facilities, practicality, or the fact that the war ended and there wasn't a need for it anymore.

 - Alternate-history: what if things had played out differently, a different decision was made somewhere that changed the course of the war? What if the Nazis had won the war, what would the world be like today? What if we had been forced to engage in a land-war with Japan? This has a sort of sub-category to it as well:

 - Conspiracy-theory: did Hitler *really* commit suicide in his bunker? Have high-ranking Nazis been in positions of power since the war's end? Do we really know everything about the war?

Beyond this, Weird War II stuff tends to fall into one of three types:

 - Fiction: exactly what it sounds like. Jetpack-wearing Nazis with deathrays spilling out of UFOs to combat Allied mech-walkers armed with tesla weapons, shit like that. The tone can be all over the place, from depressingly apocalyptic to two-fisted pulp-action to nail-biting suspense-thriller and anything in between. Weird War II is broad enough that it can really accommodate any tone or style an author might want to implement.

 - Non-fiction: obviously more mundane than fiction, but not necessarily less interesting. Historical accounts of expeditions to recover holy relics, technical discussions of war-time breakthroughs, thought experiments about alternate courses of the war with an eye for historical accuracy and plausability, etc

 - "Non-fiction": alternative-publisher accounts of war-time activities, basically likely-fiction written as if it's non-fiction. Conspiracy theories about postwar Nazi organizations, Nazi contact with extraterrestrials, government coverups of secret experiments, stuff that the authors really want you to believe because it'll completely destroy everything you thought you knew about the world. Even if it's totally bonkers, it's still fun to think about.

Wow!  That is some feat of work on your part.  Thanks for sharing.  May have to set up a pulp DVD section.

Great list! You should add

(Alt War) Robert Conroy: Himmler's War, Red Inferno (ETO) and  1945, 1942 (PTO)

(Occult) David Bishop: Fiends of the Eastern Front (trilogy): Operation Vampyr; The Blood Red Army;
Twilight of the Dead

(Rule Books) NUTS! War Without End (Two Hour Wargames)

And I can't think of the title, but I once read a book pitting Nazi golems and sorcery against US troops at Bastogne.

Also Golem by Greg Vilk- a Jewish professor's creation runs amok in a Nazi base in the Arctic. Crap book, but it fits in here. Also any of Joseph P Farrell's books will fit into the "non-fiction" category.

All of Farrell's books are already on the list. :)

I think this should be stickied.

Video Games Turning Point: Fall of Liberty
Turning Point is also already on the list. :)

I'll have to check out First Squad and some of the others mentioned. The list is just what I personally own, it's not necessarily a 100% exhaustive list (although it's pretty damn close, haha). I'm all for more suggestions of stuff to check out - I'll update the list as I get more stuff. :P
Also I see you're from Danbury, CT - I was born in Hartford, but I've got family in Danbury. I was actually just there last year for a wedding. Small world, haha.

Great list! You should add

(Alt War) Robert Conroy: Himmler's War, Red Inferno (ETO) and  1945, 1942 (PTO)

(Occult) David Bishop: Fiends of the Eastern Front (trilogy): Operation Vampyr; The Blood Red Army;
Twilight of the Dead

(Rule Books) NUTS! War Without End (Two Hour Wargames)

And I can't think of the title, but I once read a book pitting Nazi golems and sorcery against US troops at Bastogne.

Fiends of the Eastern Front is already on the list. :) I haven't gotten Himmler's War, but I know of it - I'm waiting for the paperback to come out later this year.
I haven't heard of NUTS!, is there a website for it where you can buy it?
Also I'm pretty sure the Nazi golems book you're thinking of is 'Shadows in the Mist', by Brian Moreland.

NUTS Weird War 2, here ya go: http://www.twohourwargames.com/warwiendwewa.html

Yep, Shadows in the Mist, that's the one! Not the best WW2 horror, but still entertaining. Which reminds me, the "Delta Green" Call of Cthulhu background has some cool Occult WW2 in it, and there's a novel (Denied to the Enemy) pitting OSS against Nazi sorcerers:

Came across a book the other day that was about Himmler sending a survey team to India to discover Aryan roots, will try to get a title.

Would Brad Pitt's Seven Years in Tibet count as pulpish?

Ehh... I'd be hesitant to count it. It's not exactly "two-fisted action", haha.

As for the book you're thinking of, was it nonfiction? If it was, you're probably thinking of 'Himmler's Crusade: The Nazi Expedition to Find the Origins of the Aryan Race', by Christopher Hale.

If it was fiction then I've got no idea, haha.
