UK Spies Plotted to Feed Hitler Estrogen

They hoped an Adolf ‘herr’ to ‘her’ transformation might curb violence.

In one of the British forces’ wackier schemes to rid the world of Adolph Hitler’s violence, secret agents plotted to slip estrogen in the fuhrer’s food in a bid to tame his aggression, according to a new book. The estrogen would be tasteless and the transformation gradual as Hitler changed from a “herr” to a “her,” as the Daily Mail quips. It’s not clear if the plot was launched, but it was seriously considered by the government, according to the book Secret Weapons: Technology, Science and the Race to Win World War II, written by Cardiff University Professor Brian Ford.
