Then you haven't read the article. Was there some reason you
decided to form and express an opinion without reading the
article? There's more to Byrd's mission than "fantasy and
science fiction". Are you saying that Operation High Jump didn't
take place?

"This invasion of the continent of Antarctica was named
'Operation High Jump' and comprised of some 4700 military
personnel, six helicopters, six Martin PBM flying boats, two
seaplane tenders, fifteen other aircraft, thirteen US Navy
support ships and one aircraft carrier; the USS Philippine Sea

It seems incredible that so shortly after a war that had
decimated most of Europe and crippled global economies, an
expedition to Antarctica was undertaken with so much haste (it
took advantage of the first available Antarctic summer after the
war), at such cost, and with so much military hardware - unless
the operation was absolutely essential to the security of the
United States."


Most of this article is pure history. If folks want to
understand the basics of Operation High Jump, and Byrd's missing
time, and the German connection, this is a good introductory

I have no idea if there are or ever were German bases in
Antarctica, but I do know that Byrd believed that there was
something there we needed to deal with:

"Adm. Byrd declared today that it was imperative for the United
States to initiate immediate defense measures against hostile
regions. The Admiral further stated that he didn't want to
frighten anyone unduly but it was a bitter reality that in case
of a new war the continental United States would be attacked by
flying objects which could fly from pole to pole at incredible

Admiral Byrd repeated the above points of view, resulting from
his personal knowledge gathered both at the north and south
poles, before a news conference held for International News
