GERMAN SCIENTISTS HELP THE U.S. IN 1945


Project Paperclip Team at Fort Bliss.

In a move that stirs up some controversy, as part of "Operation Paperclip," the United States shipped 88 German scientists to
America to assist the nation in its production of rocket technology.
Most of these men had served under the
Nazi regime and critics in
the United States questioned the morality of placing them in the
service of America. Nevertheless, the U.S. government, desperate
to acquire the scientific know-how that had produced the terrifying
and destructive V-1 and V-2 rockets for Germany during WWII, and
fearful that the Russians were also utilizing captured German
scientists for the same end, welcomed the men with open arms.
