Guillermo Del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities

Bizarre nightmares unfold in eight tales of terror in this visually stunning, spine-tingling horror collection curated by Guillermo del Toro.

Nazi Secret Weapons

Driven by the necessities of WWII, German engineers and designers helped pioneer some of the most sophisticated military machinery in the world.

Just prior to the end of WWII, the German military secretly undertook a massive push to design miracle weapons such as colossal tanks and the world's first guided missiles and long-range bombers that could attack New York.

The technology advanced generations in little more than a decade and the machines were on a grander scale than reached even today.

Now, nearly 60 years later, a team of experts examine the original blueprints to determine if these so-called Wunderwaffen, or "wonder weapons," could have changed the outcome of the war.

This program will travel into the past to discover the fascinating details of Hitler's wonder weapons - colossal tanks, suicide bombers and the first guided missiles.

What weapons were successful and why, which weren't deployed soon enough to give Germany the edge, and what was their ultimate fate after the war?

Do the original blueprints have clues to revolutionary potential or fatal structural flaws?
