Somewhere in lower Silesia....
Another day, another experiment. The workers replaced the thick rubber mats that lined the tiled test cell and sprayed the area down with brine. The mats would be burnt, the contaminated brine would be barreled then shipped to a mine to be buried half a kilometre under ground.
Dr. Wilhelm Voss turned to an associate, asking about the supplies of the mysteriously glowing chemical known only as â€œXerum 525â€. â€œThere is enough, Herr Doktorâ€ was the response and Voss was happy with the answer. His gaze once more rested upon the large device sitting in the centre of the test cell. Known as â€œDie Glockeâ€, due to its bell-like shape, he was sure that it could help turn the war to the Reichâ€™s advantage once more, as long as they were successful before the Allies over ran the facility...

â€œWhy not just charge on to Berlin? Why go to some craphole of an industrial site, thatâ€™s been bombed to hell and back already?â€ Capt R Gregson asked himself. Then it occurred to him why. His unit, CC-B, Third Armoured, had been the first to come across the work of ObergruppenfÃ¼hrer Hans Kammler at Nordhausen in Saxony, and now the outfit he was part of had been ordered to get to the Skoda Works at Pilsen, then onto some place called Ludwigsdorf in Lower Silesia â€“ and the reason why, well, SHAEF just hadnâ€™t deigned to tell them yet, but you could bet that if it was one of Kammlerâ€™s joints, whatever going on there either had to be stopped, or had to be gotten hold of before the Commies or Limeys got to itâ€¦.
â€œWhat the hell do the Yanks want with Lower Silesia?â€ Major Geoffrey Stevens asked himself. â€œThe war is in its dying days, Berlin is the big prize now!â€. He picked the folder up from the desk, a folder simply marked as â€œKammlerstab â€“ TOP SECRETâ€. Then he understood. This was the real prize, Berlin was a pile of rubble, nothing more than a symbol of the destruction of the Nazi empire. But this, this was far more important, and Major (Dr) G Stevens Phd could see that he was going to have to go and speak to an old friend of his, Commander Flemming, head of a secretive unit known only as â€œ30 AUâ€â€¦
Ludwigsdorf, Lower Silesia, 1945
Sturmbannfuhrer Rudolf Schuster was impressed with the quality of the personnel he had managed to gather for this most important of missions â€“ a mission authorised by ObergruppenfÃ¼hrer Hans Kammler himself. Under his command, a detachment from the SS SEK (Special Evacuation Komando), two JU390â€™s of the Luftwaffesâ€™s elite Kampfgeschwader 200, along with Fallschirmjager attached to the unit, the secretive â€œ3rd Staffelâ€.
His orders had been simple. Hold the facility for as long as possible against the damned Allies, then evacuate the equipment and liquidate the scientists working thereâ€¦
