Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

Not entirely turn him into a woman of course, but a new book by Professor Brian Ford from Cardiff University details some bizarre plans that the allies had for dealing with the Führer.

Secret Weapons: Technology, Science And The Race To Win World War II. The title alone makes me want to go out and buy the book. According to the author:

“There was an allied plan that they would smuggle oestrogen into Hitler’s food and change his sex so he would become more feminine and less aggressive.

“Their research had showed the importance of sex hormones – they were beginning to be used in sex therapy in London.

“The plan was to give sex hormones to Hitler and counterbalance his unnecessary aggression.”

So no, the allies did not plan on storming into a German bunker, dragging Hitler out and forcefully putting a dress and makeup on him. This was a plan to lace Hitler’s food with estrogen, in efforts to bend his out of control aggressiveness. Which if you really think about it, MIGHT have worked on Hitler. We all know that high levels of estrogen has been found in the food that sent out to prisons across the United States, in efforts to control the aggressive male prisoners. But would that plan have really worked on someone as deranged as Hitler?

Bizarre plans hatched by the allies to win the second world war have been revealed for the first time – including a plot to turn Hitler into a woman.

Allies thought by smuggling female sex hormones into the fuhrer’s food they could turn him into a woman and curb his aggressive impulses.

The plot was just one of a number of wacky schemes cooked up to break the war’s stalemate, according to a new book by a Welsh-based author.

Others included dropping glue on Nazi troops in an attempt to stick them to the ground, as well as creating bombs made to look like everyday tins of fruit and chocolate.

The hare-brained schemes are revealed for the first time in a new book called Secret Weapons: Technology, Science And The Race To Win World War II.

They have come to light now because of the publication of new documents not previously seen because of their sensitive nature.

The book is authored by Professor Brian Ford, a fellow at Cardiff University and pioneer of popular science.

He said the allies were deadly serious about turning the evil Austrian transgender – to be more like his placid sister Paula.

Professor Ford said: “There was an allied plan that they would smuggle oestrogen into Hitler’s food and change his sex so he would become more feminine and less aggressive.

“Their research had showed the importance of sex hormones – they were beginning to be used in sex therapy in London.

“The plan was to give sex hormones to Hitler and counterbalance his unnecessary aggression.”

Professor Ford said the plan was perfectly plausible because British spies were in place to lace his food with the hormones and it would have avoided detection for months.

“In fact it was found there were agents who would be able to get it into his food,” he said.

“It would have been entirely possible.

“He had testers who used to taste his food. There was no mileage to putting poison in his food because they would immediately fall victim to it.

“Sex hormones were a different matter. They only affected you if you took them for weeks or months on end so no-one would have realised the hormones were in the food.”

And Hitler’s sex change was not the only trick they had up their sleeve.

Another tactic saw allies draw up plans to drop boxes of poisonous snakes on the enemy, while they also spent fortunes developing a calamitous explosive-laden cart for an assault on Normandy – called the Great Panjandrum.

    Not a terrible idea. And btw, I did NOT know that high amts of estrogen can be found in prison food. Interesting.

  • Henry

    They obviously never watched Roller Derby, or been to a clearance sale at Nordstrom’s.

  • shroomie

    Hahaha! Love it Henry!

  • JP

    I don´t think oestrogen would have been much help, except giving Der Führer bitch-tits. (Which undoubtly would have been very funny, but not useful…)

    It was a myth that Hitler was overly aggressive, a myth formed by the allies by watching his well rehearsed speeches.
    It was theatrics, rehearsed to the minute detail, often in front of a mirror, so he could fine tune every gesture and outburst of emotion and aggressiveness.

    Private films of Hitler in the Berchdesgaden residence shows a much different behaviour, and witnesses has said that he was a rather quiet man privately.

  • Scientia

    Its true JP he was very much versed in theatrics so that he could give the performances demanded of that era, especially as ‘talkies’ only started in about the mid 1920s and in Europe more like the late 1920s and 1930s. The private footage does show his ‘lighter’ side if you could call it that.

    Remember WWII approx 50 million dead.

    Javier, are you sure they drug prisoners? That sounds like it would probably be a ‘human’ rights violation.
