Were the Nazis meth-heads?

Might have been, according to writer Norman Ohler.

The topic has always interested me since I found out that Bromides were supposedly also used to cool military libido. But there are obvious risks and apparently the Allies also experimented with "pep pills" and rejected them:
"World War II: Methamphetamine and amphetamine are given to Allied bomber pilots to sustain them on long flights. The experiment fails because soldiers become irritable and can't channel their aggression."

Richard just said, "Yeah, there's nothing worse than a aggressive pilot."

Can't channel their aggression, you say? That's what the enemy is for.
