Summer, 1939. Czechoslovakia has been invaded by the Third Reich, and the country dismantled. The British government, not yet at war with Nazi Germany, received intelligence from the Czechoslovak government-in-exile in London that a Czech priest working for the resistance in the vicinity of Prague has information about atrocities committed by the Third Reich—information which will provide priceless propaganda if war does break out. According to British intelligence, the priest—codename ANGEL—is hiding Czechoslovakian children and preventing them from being transported to Castle Karlstein, some 25 miles southwest of Prague, reportedly where the atrocities have been committed. British Intelligence is also very interested in any possible military significance to these atrocities.
Briefed at the Section D headquarters in central London by Czech resistance leader in exile, Frantisek Moravec, and provided with a handwritten letter of introduction by him (with no reference to the British government, who are determined to maintain deniability), your mission is to establish communications with the resistance on the ground, contact ANGEL, find out just what the Nazi atrocities at Castle Karlstein are, and prevent these atrocities from continuing.

NAZI RESEARCH CENTER DISASTER
Lack of proper safety protocols and haphazard science principles are rumored to have caught up with the Nazi movement in Czechoslovakia. Locals are reporting a massive explosion destroyed Castle Karlstein recently. The site, a historical landmark cherished by many, is suspected to be a complete loss. Numerous townsfolk died trying to rescue people from the rubble, including Father Andrej Cerny, a local hero for his work protecting children from the Nazi labor camp.
The Nazis, embarrassed by their very public failure, have abandoned the Castle and local area, much to the relief of the local populace. While a tragic loss for the Karlstein people, at least they have gained some freedom from the occupying force.
