SS-KNIGHTS OF THE BLACK SUN
In April 1966 a Soviet Yak Jet Fighter overflying the British Sector of Berlin crashed into the Stossensee Lake, not far from the British Military Headquarters. The aircraft is known to have the top-secret Spin Skip radar system, so while British military forces mount a salvage operation; the Russians make an armed incursion into the British Sector to protect their aircraft.
A serious armed confrontation at the crash site results in the Russians backing down but being permitted to observe the salvage operation. One of the most spectacular intelligence coups of the cold war was carried out under the watchful gaze of the Soviet observers when various parts of the aircraft were spirited away to the Royal Aircraft Establishment in Farnborough for examination. The Russians plan to retrieve a top-secret and highly critical radar component and send a KGB agent into West Berlin. A sleeper agent at the British Headquarters is activated, while the East German Stasi blackmail a Military Police NCO and his girlfriend into stealing the radar component for them.
Wolf brought in
One of the scientists from Farnborough overseeing the recovery operation discovers that the aircraft component is missing and Sergeant Anthony WOLF; a SIB Investigator is brought in to carry out a covert Investigation. Wolf identifies the perpetrator, but the Stasi eliminate him and his girlfriend before they can provide information.
Gun battle with Stasi
New lines of enquiry lead the Investigators to the spy’s safe house. During surveillance of the targets, Wolf is involved in a gun battle with a Stasi Agent, resulting in the death of four US CID agents and the Stasi Agent. The mounting death toll causes military authorities to set up a joint SIB, US CID and Intelligence task force to identify the members of the Stasi Cell, bring them to justice and stop the aircraft component reaching the East.

Wewelsburg, a mysterious triangular-shaped Castle near to Paderborn in Westphalia, was taken over in 1934 by Heinrich Himmler and refurbished to become the centre of the SS-Cult. Although he announced that the castle would become an SS-School, it became the SS-Centre for pseudo-scientific research and a meeting place for the SS hierarchy.
Himmler and the occult
Himmler was fascinated by the occult and legends of King Arthur as well as Norse and Viking mythology. His fascination with King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table resulted in two of the Study rooms being named the Grail Room & King Arthur Room and remembering his fascination with legends of Camelot; one finds a strange symbol within the mosaic floor of the Grand Hall in the North Tower. The round symbol, reminiscent of the Arthurian Round Table, has twelve SS-Victory Runes radiating from a central core.
SS-Knights of the Black Sun
Although there is no record of the actual name or meaning of this strange symbol, the Author has provided a feasible use for the symbol in the ceremonies of the fictional SS-Knights of the Black Sun. An order dedicated to preserving Hitler’s life by assisting his escape to Argentina and deceiving the Allies into believing that he died in his Bunker in Berlin. Once Hitler’s safety was assured, to implement his long term plan for a Fourth Reich or New World Order.
Two decades later, SIB Investigator Wolf becomes aware of the plan’s implementation, when West Berlin erupts with student uprisings, state-sponsored murder and civil rebellion. While West Berlin burns, Neo-Nazis rampage and radicals plot armed insurrection. Wolf and his colleagues must establish who is master-minding the plot and stop him and West Berlin’s destruction.
