 'Iron Nightmare' by Todayinah Ed.
Todayinah Editor Todayinah Ed. says, Nazi Moon-landing in a later WW2 scenario If you're interested in viewing samples of my other work why not visit Todayinah site.


June 22

In 1951, on this day the Head of the Nazi Space Flight Programme in Peenemünde Herr Direcktor Wernher von Braun determined that oxygen shortage was the probable cause of hallucinations in which his astronauts had experienced recurrent visions of Judeo-Christian imagery during their maiden voyage to the Moon.

Iron NightmareMission Commander Hans-Ulrich Rude had experienced a vision of a golden ram passing through the hull of the spacecraft. A Stuka dive-bomber flying ace and card carrying member of the Nazi party, he was the most highly decorated German serviceman of the recent war, one of only twenty-seven military men to be awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds, and the only one to be awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Golden Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds

And so plans for the crew to accompany the Fuehrer on a celebration tour of Germany had been scrapped because the astronauts were ideologically compromised. In any case Second in Command Erwin Hentschel had already escaped to neutral America where he was sharing his new vision of the wonder of God's creation. It was an Iron Nightmare threatening to undermine the thousand year future of the Third Reich.



June 24

In 1953, at the Nuremberg Trials: the defense team for Adolf Hitler rebutted the charges of "planning, initiating and waging wars of aggression and other crimes against peace" by arguing that the Nazi invasion of Eastern Europe was a merely pretext for conducting the Final Solution.

Iron Nightmare 2
The Trial of Adolf Hitler
After the 1st U.S. Army occupied the Peenemünde Space Port General Eisenhower soon realised that the High Command had faked their escape to the Dark Side of the Moon acting swiftly in order to intercept the Nazis en route to South America.

But an even more grisly truth emerged. Despite his stated objective of gaining Lebensraum for the Volk (living space for the German People), it soon became apparent that the whole Nazi programme was a vehicle for genocide, explaining the Fuhrer's callous indifference to military setbacks across the Eastern front. Because by 1943, four in five of the Jewish People who would perish in the Holocaust had already died.



July 20

In 1969, on this day NASA confirmed that the identity of the deceased Soviet Cosmonaut discovered at Tranquility Base was none other than Yuri Gagarin who had been reported dead by the Pravda Newspaper as a result of a fatal training accident at the Star City some eighteen months before.

Even more surprisingly a radio playback included several warnings that the now abandoned Soviet lander was entering Nazi Airspace.

Ironically the American landing at Tranquility Base were largely a triumph of the German Rocket Scientists such as Werner Von Braun who had been based at the Peenemünde Space Port. Due to the rapid invasion of General Eisenhower's forces, they had been prevented from joining their colleagues in Antartica who relocated to the Dark Side of the Moon during the final phase of the war.
