Luigi Sacerra was an Italian who claimed in the 1950s that he had been
an eyewitness at a secret weapon test by the Third Reich. According to
Sacerra, on the evening of Thursday 10-12 and the predawn hours of
Friday 10-13, 1944, he was an Italian observer at a test on Rugen of
what was described to him as a "disintegration" bomb.
The second fragment of information relied on by Karlsch are some
after-action reports filed in the wake of Kursk by Japanese observers
attached to Soviet forces. The Japanese sent news to their Moscow
embassy that there had been two extraordinary attacks by the Germans.
The Germans had launched two kilo shells at the Red Army and those uses
had an extraordinary affect on the troops. The Soviet troops had been
"burned black" and supposedly the Reds identified the weapon as a gas
attack, and signalled the foe that any repetition of the attack would
bring immediate Soviet chemical reaction.
The Japanese observer claimed that the Kursk weapon had been an atom
splitting bomb, and reported that the weapon had also once been used in
the Crimea at some unspecified time.
Again, this is not the strongest evidence. The date of the "attacks" is
given as Saturday 7-3, 1943, when a careful reporter would know that
Kursk started Monday 7-5. (Of course, it is possible the secret weapon
was used a weekend in advance of the armored assault

if im not wrong...once the Allies entered in Nazis occupied terroritries they found that the Germans we not even close regarding technology for being able to to produce the A-Bomb...
From May to mid-December, Berg hopped around Europe interviewing physicists and trying to convince several to leave Europe and work in America. At the beginning of December, news about Heisenberg giving a lecture in Zurich, Switzerland reached the OSS, and Berg was assigned the task of attending the lecture and determining "if anything Heisenberg said convinced him the Germans were close to a bomb." If Berg came to the conclusion that the Germans were close, he had orders to shoot Heisenberg; Berg determined that the Germans were not close. During his time in Switzerland, Berg became close friends with the physicist Paul Scherrer. Berg returned to the United States on April 25, 1945, and resigned from the Strategic Services Unit, the successor to the OSS, in August. He was awarded the Medal of Freedom on October 10, but he rejected the award on December 2. His sister later accepted it on his behalf after his death.

sorry man there is no way paper clip scientists had any effect on the us bomb program.
The first operation to gather up nazi scientists was made in july 45, we al ready had a bomb by that time, after 3 years of work.
german scientists made huge contributions to the fields of areonauitics areospace and such. But the german scientists who worked on the manhattan project defected before the war started.
The Manhattan Project was the codename for a project conducted during World War II to develop the first atomic bomb. The project was led by the United States, and included scientists from the United Kingdom and Canada. Formally designated as the Manhattan Engineer District (MED), it refers specifically to the period of the project from 1942–1946 under the control of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, under the administration of General Leslie R. Groves. The scientific research was directed by American physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer.
The project's roots lay in scientists' fears since the 1930s that Nazi Germany was also investigating nuclear weapons of its own. Born out of a small research program in 1939, the Manhattan Project eventually employed more than 130,000 people and cost nearly US$2 billion ($22 billion in current value). It resulted in the creation of multiple production and research sites that operated in secret.
Project research took place at over thirty sites across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. The three primary research and production sites of the project were the plutonium-production facility at what is now the Hanford Site, the uranium-enrichment facilities at Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and the weapons research and design laboratory now known as Los Alamos National Laboratory. The MED maintained control over U.S. weapons production until the formation of the Atomic Energy Commission in January 1947.

The scientist did come after the surrender of Germany, yes, but the Uranium used in the second bomb was German, that is why I would like to know some more info about the German atomb bomb program during WW2, as they removed (obliterated) a concentration camp at Stralsund, and a russian infantery regiment was scorched, I would like to know, if those 2 events is not a nuke/baby nuke, can someone confirm, firmly that it might have been a air-fuel bomb?
If this is a Air-fuel bomb.
Can 2-3 shells of 2-5 kilo devestate a hole infantery regiment??
