Drogons 3 Victims Of The Victoriuos

Release Date: 2015-04-27
Genre: Fiction

Sven, Ole, Asil, Einer and their friends are about to embark on one of the most heart-rending adventures of their lives. They will be joined by their friends Kavan, Parkurkarkuss and McCorn in an effort to rescue Kavan’s family from the Russian zone of occupied Germany. Atrocities committed by the Nazi’s are well documented. Educational institutes and even museums teach the world about the plight and suffering of the Jews and other minorities that were displaced from their homes and businesses, tortured and killed during the Nazi regime. These well-meaning organizations are there to make sure we never forget the holocaust that took place in Hitler’s Nazi Germany. History and education have told of the suffering and death reeked upon the countries that the Germans overran and occupied. After the unconditional surrender of Germany and its occupation by the allied nations the German people would be treated much the same as they had treated the countries that they had defeated. For the German survivors would soon be displaced from their homes, have their possessions and business taken away from them. The basic needs of life would be allowed only at sustenance levels. After Germany surrendered, a new virtually ‘unknown holocaust’ took place. From 1945-1950 the allies expelled or forced more than 14 million Germans from their ancestral homes. 4 million German citizens were sent away as forced labor, most of these went to Russia never to return. More than 2 million Germans were killed or lost their lives. Over 2 million women from the ages of 9 to 90 were raped. Many of them did not survive or were mutilated for life. In the winter of 1945-1946, the allies forbid any nation to send food or aid to the starving Germans. The allied authorities even rejected requests by the international Red Cross to bring provisions to alleviate the suffering of the German people. The most common response to allied atrocities was to say, “The Germans got what the deserved.” Many of the things you will read in this story are true and based on facts. There are books and resources available on line or at your library for those of you who would like to do further research. I hope that the ‘truth’ be it good or bad will help humanity not to repeat the same mistakes in the future. What was left of the German population had become the Victims of the Victorious.

As a result, the WDI has its open, or public, side as well as a clandestine force staffed by professional undercover agents from around the world. The secret side of the WDI swings into action when first one, then a second of its agents is detected and eliminated. Since the Institute does not know who or what they are fighting, they turn to an unlikely candidate to identify and track down their adversary. He is ex-Army Ranger Francis Xavier McNulty, who has become an activist priest. McNulty ferrets out a mole in the WDI headquarters, then moves to Europe where he is joined by other operatives to track down the assassin as well as accomplish a second mission of a political nature. One result is involvement with cardinals within the Curia. The assignment is nearly foiled when the WDI cell is uncovered and infiltrated by an element of the target opposing force.

“The four propellers, powered by the powerful BMW aircraft engines of the Focke Wulf Condor, sliced through the pitch-black Polish airspace like steel switchblades in the night. Commanding the secret spy plane was SS Colonel Curt von Wolfsberg of the Schutzstaffel’s Condor Wolf Aufklarungsgruppe (to conceive, explain, and conceal) SS Aerial Photographic Reconnaissance and Intelligence Air Group. Their mission had top-secret priority in Adolf Hitler’s plan to invade Poland. They were to find the enemy’s military targets and convey this information back to the German army commanders for analysis. This was one of the paramount information gathering processes before the mechanized armored Blitzkrieg invasion activated.
