It's long been known that German soldiers used methamphetamine called Pervitin in the Second World War. But have tales of Nazis on speed obscured the other side of the story: the massive use of stimulants by British and American troops? Did total war unleash the world's first pharmacological arms race? Historian James Holland quests to dig deeper and unearth the truth behind the war.
