A disturbing documentary sheds new light on just how far the Nazi’s and the Allied soldiers did in an attempt to win the second world War, including the use of performance-enhancing drugs.

“Secrets of the Dead: battle Speed”, which airs on June 25 on PBS, it turns out that the Nazi soldiers were given the methamphetamine Pervitin, which are manufactured by the Temmler Pharmaceutical, American, and British troops used whatever they could get their hands on, including the coffee, Pervitin, which is obtained from the anti-Nazi forces, the amphetamine Benzedrine.

“In the 1940s, the army discovered and Pervitin in a downed German aircraft in the south of England, and the unlocking of the secrets of the germans’ seemingly endless energy, and is the result of the Allies to consider the same tactics for their troops,” PBS’s representatives wrote in a statement.

The representatives went on to say, “The Allies decided to make use of the ‘amphetamine’. The two drugs users are intensely alert due to the floods them with a sense of euphoria. With the newly added methyl group in the molecule, Pervitin, races across the blood-brain barrier, it is a little bit faster than is Benzedrine. Otherwise, the two drugs have almost the same effect.”

Military officials, including the AMERICAN General and future President Dwight Eisenhower, who promised to 500,000 tablets of Benzedrine, were burned in order to gain an edge in the war. She wanted to push the soldiers beyond their limits, in the hope that the drugs would be “the collapse of not only the need to sleep, but the anxiety and distress of the troops, as well.

LiveScience reports that in 1940, the year of the Nazis’ relentless attacks against the united Kingdom (also known as the Tank), about 35 million Pervitin tablets were sent to the 3 million German soldiers, sailors and aviators, including the details of the British War Office.

The findings, which were compiled by Nicolas Rasmussen, a professor at the University of New South Wales in Australia and published in the year 2011.

However, the effects of the drug have been largely overlooked, PBS reports.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), methamphetamine is chemically similar to amphetamines, and can be used in a variety of ways, such as, smoke, take pills, snort or inject the powder, after it has been diluted in water or alcohol.

Some of the long-term effects of using methamphetamine include extreme weight loss, addictions, memory loss, violent behavior, paranoia, and a number of others.

“In addition, continued use of methamphetamine cause changes in the brain’s dopamine system that are associated with impaired co-ordination, and impaired verbal learning,” NIDA wrote on her website. “In the context of studies of people who have used methamphetamine over the long-term, major changes in the affected areas of the brain involved in emotion and memory. This could explain a lot of the emotional and cognitive problems in those who use methamphetamine.”

The organization is even quoted in a recent study, people who once used methamphetamine “to have an increased risk of developing Parkinson’s disease.”

And although the Benzedrine had a is not as dangerous as Pervitin was administered in the tablets, and in inhalant form), the drug can still be harmful for the soldiers, a documentary, a consultant is James Holland, told Live Science.

“It takes you to get there, but it doesn’t stop you from feeling tired and fatigued,” he told the news outlet. “Your body has no chance to recover from the fatigue, the suffering, and, therefore, there comes a point where you have to get rid of the drug, and you just collapse, you can not operate.”

The netherlands added that the full extent of the addiction, and the devastating effects were not fully understood” and that “there is very little help given to the people who have become addicted.

“At the end of the Second world War, and it’s increasing in the knowledge of the side effects of these drugs,” Holland said. “What you see is what to do with these people once they are addicted, that’s something that had to be learned the hard way in the years that followed.”
