For the first two years of World War II, Nazi troops seemed unstoppable as they overran country after country. It turns out this was made possible by doping up many German soldiers on a methamphetamine. A new study has discovered that German doctors were giving soldiers Pervitin, a methamphetamine now known as crystal meth, in an attempt to enhance their performance. Research has found that approximately 200 million pills of Pervitin were given to German soldiers from 1939 until 1945.
