Dieter Wulf discusses Hitler's "Amerikabomber" programme.
...the German military establishment convinced that the war was already lost, an increasingly desperate Adolf Hitler ordered his engineers to begin an intense campaign to develop new types of unconventional weapons-Wunderwaffen, or "miracle weapons," as they came to be called. The program also included plans, now largely forgotten, for what was called "Projekt 'A'"-a huge plane intended to fly repeat missions over the Atlantic, where it would release a smaller bomber that would continue on to carry out an attack against a target along the eastern coast of the United States. Hitler and his close associates referred to the plane as the "Amerikabomber."
