Following the bombing of the British mainland, during the Battle of Britain, with modified anthrax/rabies ordnance, a plan is made to raid the south of the country. The man to lead this suicidal task ("Mission Reich") is SS Major Zeitzler - an officer fallen from grace due to his persistence in killing prisoners of war. Together with around 50 men, these disowned warriors are sent to destroy the radar installations - which are causing the heavy German losses - so paving the way for the invasion of Great Britain.

Decades later, Zeitzler and some of his unit awaken in a secret British bunker...

Rank: SS-Unterscharführer (Sergeant)
Medals: Iron Cross (1st Class)
Campaigns: Holland 1940---France 1940

Extra Note: Sergeant Gert won his medal by storming a bunker single-handed and then shooting down those who tried to surrender. Gert is a ferocious fighter and Zeitzler chose him to help lead the raid on Britain because of this quality.

Mahler

Mahler
Name: Mahler
Born: Berlin
Height: 6' 1"
Unit of origin: Totenkopf  Division
Rank: SS-Oberschütze (Private 1st Class)
Medals: Iron Cross (2nd Class)
Campaigns: Poland 1939---Belgium 1940---Luxembourg 1940---France 1940

Extra Note: Mahler was awarded his medal by capturing a French machine-gun post and taking 3 prisoners (who promptly went missing). Mahler is an unpleasant character (even by SS standards). Wearing his malevolent grin, his favourite tactic is to deliberately wound an enemy with his sub-machine-gun before wiping him out with an axe or other edged weapon.

The Totenkopf commander, Theodor Eicke, once said: 'Hardness saves bitterness, it saves shame, it saves worry, it saves sorrow...' and Mahler has this tattooed on the inside of his right forearm.

ZIll

ZIll
Name: Zill
Born: Hamburg
Height: 6' 0"
Unit of origin: SS-Regiment Germania
Rank: SS-Oberschütze (Private 1st Class)
Medals: Iron Cross (2nd Class)
Campaigns: Poland 1939---Holland 1940---France 1940

Extra Note: Zill was awarded his medal by manning an anti-tank gun by himself as the crew had been killed. He destroyed two French tanks before running out of ammunition. As a third one rumbled into view, Zill seized a couple of grenades and managed to throw them into the driver's opened hatch. The resulting explosion seared his face with extensive burn marks.

Zill was thrown into Zeitzler's until for having an affair with an officer's mistress and subsequently killing him during an armed confrontation.
