I guess that as good a starting point as any would be with the end of the 19th century...

and heading into the early twentieth century. There was apparently, a slew of  what many researchers have dismissed as disinformation about a legend of an ancient super race of beings called the Vril that live at the controversial area of Antarctica. Though thought by most, (even today by many of my own peers)to have been fictional writers, agent provocateurs, and German propagandists, what is curious to me is the fact that the British government, along with a few others in the peripheral, took them very seriously. Legend of the Vril spread through the strata of  German secret societies like the Thule, Vril, and  Ahnenerbe being prominent among them. After World War One, Germany was in a pickle of a situation. Strapped with war reparations owed to the world and forbidden by law of the Versailles Treaty to be able to manufacture weapons of war of any kind, Germans were smitten with the idea of relocation to an area so remote that it would be impenetrable by Allied forces. So the expeditions began and U-Boats made many a voyage through the dark cold southern waters. Taking along with them machinery of every imaginable sort. Drilling vehicles, gas drums, welding and paving equipment, raw steel, etc...everything that they would need to begin the construction of their new base. I have supplied a picture of it all sitting at the Nazi outpost dubbed Maudheim Base(Note the runway on the left of the picture). Hey, and if they encountered the Vril or whoever else is stashed down there, it was just as well. What is a frightening prospect and furthermore, reported by many eyewitnesses and contemporary experiencers(contactees) is that the Nazis did in fact, connect with this superior race of beings and that the beings granted them amnesty and even befriended them. That would mean that technologies were shared but I digress. 


 The British have long been masters of the sea.  As an island nation it has had to be throughout time. It so happens that the Royal Navy made their own early south polar excursions from 1944- 1946 in what was dubbed Operation Tabarin. There are only two or three outlets that have relayed this information and it's a tad sketchy but it is important in the sense that it is yet more circumstantial evidence surrounding the Antarctic/German mystery. Evidence mind you that stems from an official government source. As always it is up to you to decide if valid. The story below is relayed by Nigel Craddon from Steven Quayle's masterpiece, Empire Beneath The Ice. 


" James Robert, WWII historian and writer, interviewed an (unnamed) British war-time SAS officer described by Robert as the last survivor of the Neischwabenland campaigns...According to Robert...Antarctica...was  "Britain's secret war."

  ...In the summer of 1944, British scientists and commandos found an "ancient tunnel." Under orders, the thirty-strong force went through the tunnel but only two returned before the Antarctic winter set in. During the winter months, the two survivors made absurd claims about Polar Men, ancient tunnels, and Nazis. 

       Radio contact was finally lost in July 1945. The last broadcast concluded abruptly with an anguished scream: "...the Polar Men have found me."

       Against this macabre backdrop, the mission took place. The SAS team found one survivor... Under questioning, the surviving soldier described finding a tunnel which led to a vast abnormally warm underground cavern filled with lakes. Startlingly, the cavern was lit artificially. 

       Investigation showed that the Nazis had constructed a huge base inside the caverns and had even built docks for U-boats. The survivor reported that "hangers for strange planes and excavations galore" had been documented. The British exploration team had been spotted and all executed except for the [survivor]...

       The survivor said that the "Polar Men" were a product of Nazi science although the SAS veteran's account does not elaborate on how he arrived at this conclusion. The team captured and killed one of the  Polar Men and the mission scientist declare that he was human but it seemed he had been able to produce more hair and withstand the cold far more effectively.

       The survivor said that the Nazis power source was volcanic, which gave them heat for steam and also helped to produce electricity.

       Nine SAS commandos entered the tunnel, eventually reaching the vast, lit cavern. From their place of concealment, they were astounded to see a great number of people scurrying ant-like around the cavern. They were also confronted by a staggering scale of construction activity.

       On their return to South Georgia, the mission team was ordered never to reveal what it had seen, heard, or encountered. The tunnel was explained away as glacial erosion. The Polar Men were merely "unkempt soldiers that had gone crazy." "


       "Stories about U-boat activity in the area continued for many years after the war. A French news agency report in 1946 that: "The continuous rumors about German U-boat activity in the region of Tierra del Fuego between the southern most tip of Latin America and the continent of Antarctica are based on true happenings."

       France Soir then published an account describing the Icelandic whaler Juliana's purported encounter eighteen months after the cessation of hostilities. The Juliana was in the Antarctic region around the Malivinas Islands (today's Falklands) when a large German submarine surfaced and raised the German official flag...

       The submarine commander sent out a boarding party, which approached the Juliana in a rubber dinghy. The boarding party demanded from the whaler's Captain Hekla part of his fresh food stocks. The German officer spoke correct english and paid for his provisions in U.S. dollars, giving Hekla a bonus of $10 for each member of the Juliana's crew...

       Author Wilhelm Landig claimed that it was not just in Antarctica that Nazi strongholds were established. During WWII, Landig held a senior central position in the Nazi archive in Berlin where information from all around the world came in for analysis and filing. 

       In 1977, Landig published Kampf gegen Thule (Battle Against Thule), later republished as Gotzen gegegn Thule (Godlets Against Thule), claiming that his book was not a work of fiction but one based on facts that his higher-ups had given him leave to publish.

       Styling himself. thus, as a "man in the know", Landig writes extensively in Gotzen Gegen Thule about the Nazis polar bases. These included the Canadian Arctic, the Alps on the Argentine / Chilean border (reportedly named Colonia Dignidad) and a base in Eastern Greenland called Biber Damm (Beaver Dam) which Landig said was accessed  via U-boat through underwater tunnels. This method of U-boat was also described for the base at Neuschwabenland.

       In fact, this type of entrance was actually built and can be seen at  the German base on the island of Fuertaventura in the Canary Islands. Steven Speilberg is  said to have got  the idea for the submarine base scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark from the Beaver Dam facility, which some researchers claim was a secret joint Nazi-NATO military base well after the war."


My first question pertaining to the Polar Men would be this,,,if the Polar Men were just unkempt soldiers that had gone crazy then from who's army were they from?

Second would be in the encounter of the Juliana, it is very telling that the German officer paid in U.S. dollars!

Thirdly, the downplay that western media and educators gave to the gravity of Doenitz' role in the scheme of the absconding of massive amounts of upper echelon SS, logistical provisions, and personnel to New Schwabenland is a betrayal to history and the American tax payer. Furthermore, it is in my view just part of the overall cover-up of the true nature of the end of World War Two. And for those researchers that do not have the vision or the guts to make the leap that the Nazis, did in fact escape to make a successful New Berlin in the ice, then all I can say is keep watching and digging.
