World War Weird explains the most mysterious and bizarre events of both the World Wars. In the chaos of battle men claim to have witnessed some of history’s strangest sightings and in the minds of their leaders; ludicrous military plans have been hatched. From unexplained sea monsters spotted by U-boat captains to some of the weirdest weaponry of the Wars, each episode will examine the stories in fascinating detail. Despite decades of research by historians and experts, many accounts still remain a complete mystery. Using de-classified documents and military historians World War Weird attempts to explain the unexplainable and explore the fascinating history associated with some of the darkest periods in human history.

As the Nazis swept across Europe they were keen to find ways of increasing the size of their army. One scientist had a bizarre idea: recruit dogs. He believed that dogs were as intelligent as humans, capable of abstract thinking and communication; that German dogs could be trained to serve alongside German troops and perhaps even take the place of SS officers guarding concentration camps.

Series 2 - Episode 3

Stories in this episode include: An alien language with an unbreakable code, A cryptic conundrum sends the Nazis a sinister clue, The unspeakable horror of the German corpse factories and the British volunteers who are buried alive.
