I am currently investigating the impact of the theoretical physics community and its developments on the progression of the second world war and the Nazi regime. I have read Cornwell's book on Hitler's scientists, and other texts on the Manhattan Project. My question is can you recommend any other resources (preferably books) which are relevant to my investigation? I stress:

  • Resources which present personal accounts or otherwise of the physics community under the Nazi regime are not what I am asking for. Rather I require resources which assess the impact of theoretical physics on the progression of the war so that I am analyze them.

  • This question does not appear to be about history within the scope defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I noticed I received a '-1.' Moderators please alert me on how I should improve my question; I normally frequent the physics S.E. Are resource recommendations allowed here? – user1997744 May 23 '14 at 12:05
Well, wikipedia may help you in some way: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutsche_Physik – AlexBadalyan May 23 '14 at 12:06
You could read the Help Center, which specifically states that resource requests are out of scope. – Mark C. Wallace May 23 '14 at 12:13
@MarkC.Wallace: Do you know where I could ask to find these resources? Or perhaps I could rephrase the question to ask about the historiography, and also add an addendum requesting citations in an answer? – user1997744 May 23 '14 at 12:18
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a resource request – Pieter Geerkens May 25 '14 at 1:45
