Info for a fic...  
I'm gonna write a multi chapter fic... postmovie... but I need to know something.

In World War II, did Nazi Germany ever turn up with an Atomic Bomb? Like, even just testing or something. We all know America developed one. =/ Anyway, thanks!

It was to my understanding that they never got past their heave water experiments. They were also hampered by their racial ideology that labeled the work of people like Einstein as "Juden Physiks".

Read more about it here.

Could I have a link to a reputable source there? I studied Russian history for three years running, and I don't remember hearing anything about Russia and atomic weaponry until the cold war, after the Nazis fell.

They tried, but being that most of their best scientists were Jewish, they kind of shot themselves in the foot.

Didn't the Americans think the Nazis were going to build a bomb, so they had to build it first?

*disclaimer: fuzzy half-remembered history lesson quoting at 1:47 AM is unlikely to be highly accurate...*

No. The atomic bomb was built to quickly end the war in the Pacific against the Japanese. After the second bomb was dropped, Japan's ruler, Hirohito, demanded that the war be brought to a close. Everyone obeyed.

No. America developed the bomb at the end of WWII. It was created to end the war with Japan quickly and efficently, not with Germany.

Russia later developed it's own atomic bomb in the 40s.

This could have been figured out by using Wikipedia and typing in atomic bomb.

According to my roommate, who just took a Modern Japanese History class, Germany decided that they didn't have the time or resources to complete an atomic bomb, so they tried sending Uranium to JAPAN so THEY could build one. The U-boat carrying the material was intercepted before it ever reached them. Can't prove it with internet links, because it was an article she didn't even have a hardcopy of from the class, but I can get more details if you want.

I personally think THAT story would make for an interesting fic XD

I don't think, in the movie, world war II ever started, since Hitler was killed in the opression

Er, no, he wasn't. He was escorted off to prison, which is where he wound up IRL too. Why does everyone think he DIED in the movie? *completely and utterly confused*

Haha it looked like he died though, but pretty much everyone was dying >.<

The hagaren Kids OVA kinda proves that WWII did happen. Edo was living in modern day Japan and I'm doubtful that Japan would have ended up like it did if there was no war. Plus Edo saw the future the gate and there was an a-bomb.

Yea, they tried to start the revolution, it fell through, then they successfully did it later. My friend Callie figured that out by the years they showed.

they were producing Heavy Water and small quantities of uranium, they also had 2 facilities for building 90% of the components, the problem they were having was how to generate a controlled implosion. they were further along than what most people will tell you, if you do enough digging you'll see it was luck that they didn't build one 1st.
