Forgive my ignorance but what possible strategic merit is there of a millitary base in the antartic?
Bunger and his men carefully reconnoitered the area before racing back to the Currituck with news of their find. The ‘oasis’ they had discovered covered an area of some three hundred square miles of the continent and contained three large, open water lakes along with a number of smaller lakes. These lakes were separated by masses of barren, reddish-brown rocks possibly indicating the presence of iron ore.
Several days later, Bunger returned to the area, and found that the water was warm to the touch and the lake itself was filled with red, blue and green algae giving it a distinctive colour. Bunger filled a bottle with the water which later,
"turned out to be brackish, a clue to the fact that the ‘lake’ was actually an arm of the open sea." (19)
This is important for two reasons; warm, inland lakes connected to the surrounding oceans would be perfect for submarines to hide within, and similar lakes have been noted in Neu-Schwabenland, the site of the alleged Nazi base.
There is no conclusive evidence of a Nazi base on Antarctica, however that something untoward was happening on, or around, the frozen continent appears, on balance of probabilities, to be likely. The evidence is there:
i) The Germans invaded and claimed part of Antarctica on the very eve of the war when all of their activity was geared towards the war machine and the establishment of a 1000-year Reich.
ii) There was ongoing ship and submarine activity in the South Atlantic and polar regions throughout and after the war had apparently ended.
iii) The US invaded the continent itself with considerable naval resources leaving mainland America exposed and vulnerable as the world edged into the Cold War. The task force limped home as if defeated only weeks later, and the local South American press wrote of such a defeat.
iv) Admiral Byrd spoke of objects that could fly from pole to pole at incredible speeds being based on Antarctica.
v) Hundreds of thousands of Germans and numerous U-boats were missing at the end of the war.
The connection between Antarctica and the UFO phenomenon was sealed with claims made by one Albert K. Bender who stated that he,
"went into the fantastic and came up with an answer … I know what the saucers are."
