This would have defeated the Allied bombing campaign in all probability. There are many things this reviewer would have been vastly interested in seeing Speer discuss, but little along such lines is to be found.
For instance, the remarkable research in synthetic fuels, mainly methanol and ethanol, which, as early as , according to Dr. Wrecked German military equipment uncovered in the North African desert thirty years later contained batteries that still had a charge. Still another is the incredible German tape recorder, which as early as was sending out noise-free and uninterrupted symphonic radio broadcasts, at a time when the BBC and others played traditional scratchy recordings which were suspended every, four and a half minutes so that they could be turned over.

Speer, Inside the Third Reich / Spandau: The Secret Diaries
It probably would be too much to expect Speer to know how the German came to invent the microdot during the war. The principal charge against Speer at the Nuremberg trials was that he allowed forced labor in German industry.
On October 1, , he was convicted of this as a war crime and sentenced to 20 years in prison, which he served to the last minute in the grim and bleak Spandau prison in Berlin. Strangely enough, though, on February 17, , seven months before his conviction, General Lucius Clay had introduced the use of forced labor by Germans in the American-occupied zone of Germany. At the time Speer was convicted, Stalin was using millions of Germans as forced labor in Soviet Russia under conditions that made the forced labor in wartime Germany look like a rest home by comparison.
