Here's the second part I promised you. Read and review.
I picked up an old book from the box and blew the dust away in one brief. I wiped the rest of with a paper towel provided for me. I look at its title: OPERATION AUFERSTEHUNG. What an intriguing title. I decided to read before I make the necessary filing work.
Phase I: Extraction
Officer in charge: Oberst Helga von Bulow.
(Her again? I thought they put that)
away years ago
Background - See Appendix
Note: For further background regarding the historical significance of Heinrich I, the Dark Knights and related subjects see SS Paranormal documents #SQ001773, #SQ001774 and SQ001777, also Volume II chapter 7 of "A Spiritual History of the Third Reich" by Dr Carl Bohren. For details regarding excavation of the and second Dark Knights see SS Paranormal briefings #SB02188 and #SB03714. With the discovery of the elusive third Dark Knight, Operation Resurrection is once again active following a 4-year hiatus.
Phase I: Extraction
Excavation shall commence at the first favorable lunar cycle. The team - under the direct supervision of Oberfuhrer von Bulow - shall, at all times, maintain strict adherence to established rituals of talismanic removal and residual purification. (Utter rubbish)
Upon completion of the excavation, the Extraction Team - headed by Professor Zemph - shall perform the most delicate step in the entire procedure - a life essence disengagement of the hearth and all essential dormant, organic materials.
Note: The Reflex Interferomoscope must undergo a 36-hour burn in session prior to the extraction. (Hard to believe someone of Zemph's caliber would involve himself in this foolishness.)
Following a successful extraction, all materials are to be delivered to the nearest field lab for further processing.
Once processing is completed,
the resulting distillate compound will be sent to SS paranormal headquaters where it will remain until the completion of Phase II.
Phase II: Creation
Officer in charge:
SS Special Projects Acting Administrator
(Is that how they refer to me?)
Backgraund - As early 1938, it was concluded that operation resurrection would require the development of the extreme cutting edge of our present robotic and biological science. Fortunately, and quite coincidentally, such development was already well underway by the SS special paranormal division. This was to be the major component of their project Uber Soldat. Due to our overriding priority, the project was immediately transferred to our jurisdiction. Work was then rapidly resumed with the enthusiastic cooperation of all special projects personal.
All existing production is to be converted the Stag8 proto soldat to the new Type II Uber Soldat.
Note:This primarily involves replacing the old style titanium aromr with latest ultra-light carbon resin plate.
Due to our accelerated timetable, all scheduled trials are to be pushed ahead six weeks and cut back to no more then 45 days total. Result are to be published immediately thereafter.
(Result exceeded all expectation. What a weapon this could be if used as intended. All my arguments fall on deaf ears. Too fixated on their fairytales to see reason. These fools will be the ruin us all.)
The recent discovery of new Meteorillium 317 deposits in our Baltic territories has enable us to meet our original production target (see note)
Note:Meteorillium317, the rarest from of Meteorillium, is found only in certain meteor fragments that are believe to have originated at the core of the galaxy.
It is essential in the manufacture of the Imbuement Vessel, The key component of the Live Essence Annointment Ritual.
(A complete waste of time and resources.)
Six complete Type2 hosts must be ready for delivery by later than two weeks before the commencement of Phase III.
(They'll have make do with 5. I'm keeping one for further tesing. I didn't sacrifice 6 years of my life for nothing! I'm sure Himmrer will be out for my blood once he gets wind of this. No matter I'm ready to confront the Furhrer himself over this.)
Phase III: Resurrection
Officer in charge : SS Oberfurer,
Hight Priestes Adapt Mariannna Blavatsky
(Good Lord! Is she still alive?)
Background- This final phase represents the culmination of over ten years of arduous work and painstaking research. It is the realization of a dream that began even earlier. All of our efforts thus far were to achieve this one end:The resurrection of Heinrich1, Master of the DarkKnight, Wielder of powers of Earth and Fire, and spiritual ancestor of our glorious Reichsfuhrer SS.
(I don't know whether to laugh or cry.)
The ceremony is take place at our holiest site during the most favorable alignment of Saturn and Mars.
A minimum of there Hosts shall be prepared as described in the ancient text. (See note)
Note - For the sake of redundancy, six was agreed upon as the optimal number of host.
The presiding Mystic Adapt, Madame Blavatsky, shall open the ceremony with an encantation as the Life Essence Elixer is absorbed into the bodies of the initiates. Shortly thereafter she shall utter the Annointment Invocation,
imbueing each host in it's turn with the Dark life Essence.
Once imbued, the hosts will undergo a perfect transfiguration, becoming in substance, True Dark Knights.
Forming a circle with newly annointed DarkKnight, Madame Blavatsky shall recite the most ancient "world of raising" . These words, and the resulting meta-psychic link, shall open a rift in the earth, preparing the way for rebirth of master.
(This drivel is unworthy of any further comment. Can Germany affered such fools guding her destiny?)
The following is an expert from A Spiritual History of The Third Reich by Dr Carl Bohren, reprinted hear with the author's permission.
Following Charlemagne's conquest of Saxony in 804, and subsequent conversion of the pagan Saxons,
the so-called "Dark Teachings" were largely suppressed. As a result, little of consequence, relating to the Thulian Mystery Cults, occurred over the next century. Then, in 918 the Saxon prince, Heinrich I displayed a renewed interest in these teaching, as he set out to forge an independent Garmanic kingdam, separate from the powerful Frankish dynasty.
According to legend, Heinrich I acquired knowledge of the most ancient and arcane Thulian texts. Texts purported to hold the secret of the dark force which bind the earth and all that which is contained.
Armed with this great power, Heinrich set about raising an army such as the world had never seen, an army of the undead. At the core of Heinrich's army were his three most trusted vassals, the legendary Dark Knight. In exchange for their loyalty, Heinrich imbued his Dark Knights with enormous power by means of an obscure Thulian ritual. Through this ritual, Heinrich and his companions became, themselves, living conduits of the dark force, master of the nether regions between life and death.
In 933 Heinrich unleashed his irresistible army against the invading Magyars, inflicting a crushing defeat upon them at Riade. Next he turned his eyes west, intent upon overthrowing his Frankish overlords. It is difficult to imagine what the extend of his conquests might have been were it not for one fateful encounter.
His unlikely opponent was the enigmatic Simon the Wanderer. A former Benedictine monk, Simon left the order to form his own mystical sect. With his chosen followere he traveled incessantly throughout Europe, Asia Minor, and the Far East, collecting countless items of mystical knowledge from all the ancient cultures of the Old World. No doubt the channeling of raw fundamental, destructive force as practiced by Heinrich would have seemed an anathema to someone of Simon's reflective and meditative nature.
The confrontation occurred - so the legend says - in 943. After a prolonged, cataclysmic struggle, Simon and his followers, by means never revealed, managed to neutralize and slay the Dark Knight. Their remains were entombed in undisclosed locations. painstakingly sealed against future violation.
As for the fate of Heinrich, the sources are even more vague. Some say he was also slain. Others state that he could not be destroyed. That he was trapped a state of spiritual stasis. Sealed in the very earth that was the source of his power.
That was one hell of 'project book'. Fusion of occult knowledge and advance technology. I cannot believe what I was reading. I closed and, going to read it for later when I start filing when I heard footsteps behind me.
I turned around. I was just General Carrington bringing to tin cups of coffee. He stopped and laid one cup beside.
"I thought that you might have to work long hours," he said. "I thought a cup of coffee would help."
"Thank you, sir," I said, graciously accepting the cup of coffee. It had some cream in it.
"How's your research?" He asked me.
"I'm quite surprised," I said. "I never knew that the Nazis did this kind of activity."
"I know," he agreed. "What you have there is a gold mine of data on that matter. Hell, I'd like to have a copy of your work first thing in the morning." He took a sip from his coffee. "Keep it up," he added cheerily.
"I won't fail you, sir." After our brief conversation he walked back. I turned back to my work, going through mundane clipboards, journal entries and whatever else is there to paint a picture of this operation.

General von Stauff
I am positively at my wit's end. The charm has worn off much sooner than you promised. I don't know what to do now. How can I go out in the daylight looking like this? Please, please call me as soon as you get in!
To: General von Stauff
From: SS Oberfuhrer Blavatsky
My Dear General
I was overjoyed to hear that you were one of the chosen few. I can think of no one more deserving of that honor. On the other hand, I was totally dejected when I learned Burkhalter was also chosen. I know you think the world of him, but I absolutely detest him and his arrogance. Still I must give the devil his due. He has the talent and, for the purpose of maintaining the meta-psychic link, that is paramount. At least there will be one friend present whose support I can count on.
To: General Burkhalter
From: Reichsfuhrer SS Heinrich Himmler
Congratulations on being selected as a Meta-Psychic Controller. It is a great honor but also a great responsibility. Only you and your colleagues, by exercising the necessary controls, can guarantee success and prevent utter chaos. I direct you to weigh the matter heavily. I also direct you to put aside any petty differences. I know your feelings about Madame Blavatsky; but understand that, despite your objections, she is in charge of the ceremony. She has my complete confidence and I expect you to obey her orders as you would my own.
Heinrich Himmler, Reichsfuhrer SS
To: General Haupfman
From: SS-Oberfuhrer Wilhelm Strasse
I'm sorry, old friend, but my decision not to attend the ceremony must stand. This is especially true in light of recent catastrophic events. I know you and I have never seen eye to eye on this subject, but that does not stop me from wishing you much success. They tell me you where chosen to establish a "psychic control" over the situation. I am not sure I fully understand what that means, but I'm relieved to hear that at least one rational mind will be present to maintain order.
To: Reichsfuhrer SS Heinrich Himmler
From: SS Oberfuhrer Blavatsky,
High Priestess, Paranormal Division
My good friend and leader,
As I write you now I am filled with an indescribable mixture of joy and anticipation. Here it is, the day, almost the very hour of our greatest triumph. Destiny is now drawing us towards our appointment with the Anointed One, ushering us into a glorious new, Thousand Year Reich.
Do you remember the long years of our struggle? The times when only you and I remained steadfast? When only you and I would not be swayed from our purpose or our vision? Think of all the fools who scoffed at us. The cowards who ridiculed us behind our backs. To them I say - Let those laugh that win. I believe we shall both be laughing very soon.
I finally finished the file on Operation Resurrection. It was already seven o'clock on the morning. I took my finished report to a special safe that only the General has access to, to kept for final editing work at Langley. I signed out of the building and went to the administrative building for a debriefing and some instruction. Aside from the usual order to keep out mouths shut from unauthorized ears I was told that we get a day off.
I was looking forward to one. I was sped out of the base and back to my house. I later spent the whole day sleeping. Sometime then, I dreamed if any of what was found in those boxes were real... and if they were really gone.
Thisi is all the intel I could give. The words in parenthesis belong to Wilhelm Strasse, the second to the last villain in the game.
