Book Review: Empire Beneath the Ice by Stephen Quayle

book-empiresm

I have a wee confession to make. It may surprise my readers a little. Maybe not. I’m not exactly your typical granny.

I’m addicted to Stephen Quayle’s books. For the past six months or so I’ve been devouring them. And this is the latest of a bunch I’ll be reviewing for you. It’s his most recent and I read all 520 pages in two sittings. Long sittings, but two sittings. Empire Beneath the Ice: How the Nazis Won World War II was that riveting.

Stephen Quayle writes Christian nonfiction books about the supernatural realm. His books on giants and fallen angels are a much-needed answer to the world’s Ancient Alien theorists. Besides perusing his books for research for my own books, I believe books such as his provide a much needed commentary for Christians living in an X-Files culture. (Which is another reason for the project I’m researching.) As I’ve written before, there are far too many paranormal books on the market for kids, teens and adults today, and not enough Christian ones to explain the dangers of dabbling in the supernatural.

If you’re already familiar with Nazi lore, I don’t know how enthralling this book would be. But for me, a beginner, I learned quite a bit. I had no idea there were so many conspiracies surrounding the Nazis and Hitler. I didn’t even know there was a conspiracy regarding their survival and continued influence on world politics today.

Reading this book, many things began to make more sense. Roswell. UFO sightings. The crazy policies made by politicians. Even the reasons behind Kennedy’s assassination became clearer.

I’m so happy to have stumbled upon Stephen Quayle’s work while doing my own research for a story I’m working on. It’s taken me down a whole new path of discovery. And you know me. As a treasure hunter (virtual and 3-D), I couldn’t be more pleased.

Here is a description from Quayle’s website. In Empire Beneath the Ice you’ll learn:

  • Why the suppressed evidence proves Adolf Hitler didn’t die before Germany surrendered during WWII, and how he eluded capture.
  • How Nazi SS members, scientists, and soldiers escaped with Hitler to create colonies in other parts of the world to continue their monstrous research.
  • Why in 1947 Admiral Richard E. Byrd warned that the US should adopt measures to protect against an invasion by hi-tech aircraft coming from the polar regions, adding, “The time has ended when we were able to take refuge in our isolation and rely on the certainty that the distances, the oceans, and the poles were a guarantee of safety.”
  • How, using advanced technology, Nazi saucers defeated the US military — long after WWII was supposedly over.
  • Why the US space program was mostly a sham, and why the “UFOs” that started appearing around the world in the late 1940s were (and still are) most likely flown by Nazi pilots.
  • How key government, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, financial leaders, and institutions helped Hitler come into power, and facilitated the preservation of Nazi wealth and power after WWII.
  • Why today’s world is secretly controlled by a malevolent shadow government and entire populations are being surreptitiously brainwashed.
  • How ancient stargates have been duplicated to open portals into spiritual and demonic universes.
  • Why those controlling our planet have laid the groundwork for a takeover by a dictator who could best be described as the Antichrist of the Bible. Empire Beneath the Ice carefully documents these and many more astounding facts, divulging the truth about what is happening today. It gives you the insights to help prevent this diabolical takeover or, if it occurs, reveals the details and essential actions you and your loved ones must take. Empire Beneath the Ice exposes the dangers our world faces, and will arm you with the tools you need to counter these unspeakable, secret evils.

 

Do I agree with everything in the book? I’m not sure yet. Do I believe the Nazis have a secret base in Antarctica? Anything is possible these days, isn’t it? There’s certainly enough technology available to make it possible. And because of the Nazi’s involvement in the occult, who knows what supernatural technology they access?

Oh, this is a fascinating subject. But these were my favorite sections of the book:

1. Learning about Operation Highjump. Why didn’t I learn about this in school? I’m completely obsessed with knowing more about this operation. What did Byrd actually see? Why is it still such a big secret? And was Byrd murdered? Here’s a bunch of links from Quayle’s website if you’re curious too: High Jump.

2. Learning more about Wagner and the why behind Hitler’s obsession with him and his music.

3. Nazi Religion: the occult practices of the Nazis. Even as a little girl, I couldn’t fathom the evil of the Nazis. But realizing the Nazi’s deep involvement with the occult, and their practice of conjuring up demons and communicating with them, their perfection of evil makes perfect sense. I’m not sure why anyone questions whether or not Hitler and his minions were demon possessed. I think the question shouldn’t be whether or not he was, but whether or not he was not. It’s the only way I can wrap my head around such ugly, abominable wickedness. (If you want to know how ugly Satan and sin are, look at pictures of the Holocaust.)

Three things I loved about this book:

1. Christian worldview

2. Copious footnotes (I was able to look up tons of information on the Internet while I read)

3. Information, information, information.

Three things I didn’t care for:

1. For a book of this price ($40) I was disappointed to find a few typos.

2. The book is so big! My little hands can’t hold a book this big. But all Quayle’s books are published this way. I’ve learned to put a big pillow on my lap and rest the book on it if I’m wanting to read on the couch. It works out pretty well.

3. I wish his books were available digitally. I want to take them all with me. 🙂

The book has some interesting photos and illustrations as well. The only complaint I have about some of the photos are the illustrations by artist, Duncan Long, portraying Satan. They were so disturbing to me I had to cover them up with a piece of paper while I read the accompanying texts. (They’re that good.) Duncan Long’s artwork depicting other aspects in the book are beautiful. Anyone who enjoys looking at aircraft art will love Long’s paintings.

I give this book 4.5 stars. The only reason it’s not a whole five stars are for the reasons I mentioned above.

If you love World War II lore, Jesus, conspiracy theories and history, you’re going to love this book.

    Hi Karla,

    Thanks for the good review. I am contemplating on buying this book. I have been following Steve for about a year now. His research has made a lot of things more clear, especially about the supernatural and how it correlates with the bible. I think our generation is going to see some miraculous things come to pass as the return of our Lord and Savior gets closer! May God’s children have their eyes and ears open!

    God bless,
    Ashley Silvey
