"Hitler's Hit List" by Ace Preston
The Borough of King's County New York also known as Brooklyn has had many famous personalities derive from it. Woody Allen, Barbra Streisand, Jackie Gleason, Isaac Asimov, Louis "Lepke" Buchalter, Walt Whitman, Zero Mostel, Al Capone, Joseph Heller, George Gershwin, Mel Brooks etc.. Even Hồ Chí Minh claimed to have worked for a wealthy family in Brooklyn between 1917 and 1918.
It is also a little known fact that the mother of Sir Winston Churchill, Jennie Jerome was actually born in Brooklyn New York not London England. Adolf Hitler knew this! He read lots of books but he failed to read H.G. Wells 1914 novel "The World Set Free" which included air-dropped atomic bombs which never stopped exploding. Leo Szilard however did read the story which he stated later on influenced his research on nuclear chain reaction.
Jennie Jerome also known as Lady Randolph Churchill was the granddaughter of Ambrose Hall, a New York State Assemblyman. She was born a Capricorn on January 9, 1854 at 197 Amity Street Cobble Hill.
After Germany lost the air campaign in the Battle of Britain in 1940 till it lost complete control of it's airspace, scientists led by Werner Von Braun decided to develop a time machine inspired by another H.G. Wells book "The Time Machine" published in 1895.
The purpose of the Time Machine was for SS-Oberstgruppenfuhrer Josef "Sepp" Dietrich to send Germany's top commando Otto Skorzeny who recently rescued Benito Mussolini from prison during the Gran Sasso Raid September 12, 1943 back to Brooklyn to assassinate the mother of Winston Churchill. These guys weren't messing around. Furthermore it was highly believed by Dr. Josef Mengele that by killing Jennie Jerome that would prevent Little Baby Winston from ever being born.
Alleged Nazi saboteurs did manage previously to infiltrate the US via Amagansett beach Long Island New York on June 13, 1942 by German U-boat 202. The team of four led by commander Hans Linder were eventually captured by the F.B.I. after one of the saboteurs named George Dasch enroute to Washington D.C. to see J. Edgar Hoover envisioned a hero's welcome and fat reward by turning in his former comrades instead was taken in for being a traitor to his own country as well as an enemy of his own.
Towards the end of the war Hitler knew that the situation was becoming hopeless. He knew at that point that it was not possible to kidnap or assassinate Churchill or replace him with Charles Lindbergh or Henry Ford. Even Joe Kennedy (not to be confused with George Kennedy) would never get to become president of the USA. Besides Albert Speer would design the time machine. He was good at things like that.
To Hitler the time machine seemed like the only way out of the jam as the 1976 movie "The Eagle Has Landed" by writer Jack Higgens suggested. In the plot it indicated that even if you can locate and kill Sir Winston Churchill you would only be killing his double therefore it was better to get him before he was born.
The movie featured actors Michael Caine, Donald Sutherland, Robert Duvall, Larry Hagman, Treat Williams, and Donald Pleasence as Heinrich Himmler.
In another film "Casablanca Express" 1989 also featuring Donald Pleasence, Nazi commandoes hijack a train carrying Prime Minister Winston Churchill to a secret meeting in Casablanca but allied agents mount a daring rescue and save the day.
Hitler must have seen these movies! He knew the time machine was the only out but did England already have a time machine of their own! After all H.G. Wells was living in London at the time.
Rudolf Hess was unable to determine during his secret mission to England if they did have a time machine. After parachuting over Renfrewshire Scotland he was captured by a farmer using a pitchfork on May 10, 1941 . Hess did however determine that the English had crumpets and tea. He died at Spandau Prison in 1987 after forming the band Spandau Ballet.
It was discovered near the end of World War II that the German Waffen-Schutzstaffel(SS) had compiled a list of individuals slated for immediate execution prior to the abandoned invasion of England known as "Operation Sea Lion". Ironically H.G. Wells' name had appeared on this special list for the crime of being a socialist and for overseeing the expulsion of the German PEN club from the international body way back in 1934.
Even before the Nazi concept of the time machine Germany and the Soviet Union signed a non-aggression pact in august 1939. A treaty which included a secret protocol to split Poland and Eastern Europe into separate spheres.
On September 1, 1939, Germany invaded Poland. Sixteen days later on September 17, 1939 after signing armistice with Japan the Soviets invaded Poland.
In turn France, Britain, and other countries of the Commonwealth declared war on Germany but not Russia. When the campaign ended in early October 39' Poland was divided among Germany, the Soviet Union, Slovakia, and Lithuania. Poland never did surrender. The concept of a time machine was unknown to them at the time.
Coincidentally while the battle raged in Poland, Japan consequently launched its first attack at a strategically important Chinese city. The japanese also did not know of the time machine, at the time they had never read H.G. Wells but they were in the secret process of building GiGantor the giant space age robot. GiGantor was being created to smash invading U.S. ships headed towards mainland Japan but the use of atomic weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki caused Japan to surrender. GiGantor then became a cartoon character and went on to have his own television series which had to be toned down for the American audience caused it proved too violent.
Eventually word of the time machine was intercepted by U.S. Naval Intelligence. When news of the time machine reached the Italian-American community of Bensonhurst Brooklyn folks there became even further aroused after they had learned earlier about the Germans attacking Pearl Harbor.
Hitler had many splendid plans and ideas besides the time machine before the war. He brought to life another H.G. Wells novel "The War of the Worlds" 1898. He envisioned to send Walter Krupinski the 197 victory Luftwaffe ace also one of the first to fly the Me262 jet fighter in combat along with Oberst Wolfgang Falck the 7-victory Bf 110 ace, key organizer of the German night defenses, and commander of NJG 1 the first dedicated night fighter unit with Gunther Rall history's #3 ace with 275 victories around the world in 80 days. From the French port of Saint Nazaire Hitler was prepared to send a trio of german u-boats including the famous U-552 commanded by Erich Topp the third leading U-boat ace 20,000 leagues under the sea and in a desire to explore the planet Hitler was preparing his top scientists and explorers on a journey to the center of the earth. Most of these plans failed when possible communist sabotage theories such as the explosion of the Hindenburg LZ-129 over New Jersey in 1937 delayed efforts to mount such expeditions. Also outside influences like Japanese Vice Admiral Takijiro Onishi the "Father of the Kamikaze" in planning out attacks on Pearl Harbor got the US involved in the war which was just about over till then. Fortunately for the USA the japanese military had no patience to await the completion of Japan's atomic bomb as it's world-class nuclear physicists had access to uranium ore and cyclotrons to process it and even devised the means to deliver the bombs via the 400-foot long Sen Toku submarines capable of carrying planes.
Though Hitler did not get the time machine built in time to go back to the past to get Churchill's mother and win World War II, or go around the world in 80 days, or 20,000 leagues under the sea, or journey to the center of the earth instead in his last will and testament he predicted the future. He stated:
"I nourish the conviction that the hour will come when millions of men who now curse us will take a stand behind us to welcome the new Europe, our common creation born of a painful and laborious struggle and an arduous triumph -- a Europe which is the symbol of greatness, honour, strength, honesty and justice. At the time of supreme peril I must die a martyr's death for the people. But after my death will come something really great, an overwhelming revelation to the world of my mission. My spirit will rise from the grave, and the world will see I was right. The day will come when we shall make an agreement with the men of other Aryan nations." ~Adolf Hitler (Last Will & Testament)
