第一章(CHAPTER 1)
欢迎来到秘密战争(Welcome to the Secret War)
“你手里握着世界的未来…”-雷蒙德·彭加勒
(“You hold in your hands the future of the world...” - Raymond Poincare)
“绿灯,快,快,快!”
(“Green Light, Go, Go, Go!”)
奥黛丽的胃液猛地伸进喉咙,惠特利号在寒冷的夜空中返航了,降落伞的展开使她的身体受到了震动。她鼓膜的充血也渐渐消退了,她在法国乡村上空静静地漂浮着,终于可以评估一下情况了。
(Audrey’s stomach lurched into her throat as the Whitley shrank away into the frigid night air and her body was jarred by the deployment of her parachute.
The blood rushing in her ears subsided leaving her floating over the French countryside in near silence, finally able to take stock of the situation.)
六个月前,奥黛丽曾在温德姆和坎贝尔做过文员,翻译沉闷的法国科学期刊。当陛下给了她一张名片,并许诺她一生的冒险时,她抓住了这个机会。现在,她吓得直哆嗦,就像被刺骨的风吹得头发一样,她只渴望那张摇摇晃晃的旧桌子给她带来的舒适和熟悉。
(Six months ago Audrey had been a clerk at Wyndham and Campbell, translating dreary French scientific journals. When His Lordship gave her his card and promised the adventure of a lifetime, she had leapt at the opportunity. Now, shivering as much in terror as from the biting wind that whipped at her hair, she longed for nothing more than the comfort and familiarity of her wobbly old desk.)
她大概是被告知了,在她下面的某个地方,抵抗组织的联络人阿里安会等着她。但是还有谁在下面等着呢?她在训练所中听到了有关盖世太保和他们的手段事情。但他们肯定不会对她做任何事,毕竟她只是个女孩!他们肯定会对她放松警惕的,不是吗?
(Somewhere below her, or so she was told, her Resistance contact Ariane would be waiting. But who else might be waiting down there? She had heard the stories during her training of the Gestapo and their ways, but surely they wouldn’t do anything to her—after all, she was just a girl! Surely they’d go easy on her, wouldn’t they?)
“开阔地已经抵达,老姑娘,振作精神。”
(“Here comes the ground, old girl—brace yourself.”)
在她登机时带着作战行囊跌跌撞撞地穿过舱口,那该死的格兰杰说了什么?
(What was it that bloody Granger had said as she boarded the plane, fighting with her kitbag as she stumbled through the hatch?)
“我们是一群迷信的人,在剧院从不说好运。所以我只能说祝你好运!”(译注:后面那个祝好运直译是断一条腿的意思,即在剧院中的反向毒奶,在剧院中说[good luck]是不吉利的。)
(“We never say good luck in the theatre; we’re a superstitious bunch. So I’ll just say break a leg!”)

什么是《注意!克苏鲁》(WHAT IS ACHTUNG! CTHULHU?)
注意!克苏鲁是以第二次世界大战为背景的洛夫克拉夫特式类型的角色扮演游戏,玩家角色在那里调查疯子和怪物的黑暗阴谋,同时从战争带来的无所不包的混乱之中努力捍卫他们所熟知的世界。
(Achtung! Cthulhu is a World War Two-inspired setting for Lovecraftian roleplaying, where player characters investigate the dark machinations of madmen and monsters whilst battling to defend the world they know from the all-encompassing chaos that war brings.)
本书是为了与克苏鲁的呼唤第6版规则角色扮演游戏与Pinnacle Entertainment Group的狂野世界系统结合使用而创建的。
在这些页面中,你会发现历史细节这将使你的游戏是尽可能多(或少)的贴近你想要的现实。
(This book has been created for use with Chaosium’s Call of Cthulhu, Sixth Edition roleplaying game and Pinnacle Entertainment Group’s Savage Worlds system. Within these pages you will find historical details which will allow you to ground your game is as much (or little) reality as you want, rules for creating player characters, and copious quantities of equipment to support them in their activities.)
[Cth]如果你玩的是克苏鲁的呼唤,请寻找这个符号,它会突出显示与你的游戏相关的规则。你还需要参考第5章(第48页)来创建你的调查员。
(If you are playing Call of Cthulhu, look for this symbol, which highlights the rules relevant to your game. You also need to refer to Chapter 5 (p.48) when creating your investigator.)
[Sav] 如果你玩的是狂野世界,请寻找这个符号,你需要寻找这个符号,并参考第7章(第96页),来建立你的英雄。
(If, on the other hand, you are playing Savage Worlds, you need to look for this symbol instead, and refer to Chapter 7 (p.96) when building your hero.)

世界大战的年代表(CHRONOLOGY OF A WORLD AT WAR)
在1918年至1919年之间,当时德国民族被所谓的“战争结束之战”的胜利者系统地羞辱。 他们的对待,无论是真实的还是感知的,都为以后发生的第二次世界大战奠定了基础。 牢记这一点,我们包括了1939年9月3日宣布战争之前的一些精选事件。这条时间线集中在西线的事件上,但是出于视角的考虑,也包括了其他战区的一些日期。这些其他战区,如太平洋、东部前线和北非,将在其专门的补充中得到更深入的探讨。
(Established histories place the foundations of World War Two firmly in the events of 1918-1919, when the German nation is systematically humiliated by the victors of the so-called “War to End All Wars”. Their treatment, both real and perceived, sets the scene for everything that comes after. Bearing this in mind, we have included select events from the period before war is declared on September 3rd, 1939. This timeline concentrates on the events of the Western Front, but a few dates from other theatres of war are included for perspective’s sake. These other theatres, such as the Pacific, Eastern Front, and North Africa, will be dealt with in more depth in their own dedicated supplements.)
每年内的事件按时间顺序排列,并在可能的情况下按月排列。 对于特别重要的事件,则包括了特定的日期。
(Events within each year are arranged chronologically and, where possible, on a month-by-month basis. Specific dates have been included for particularly significant events.)
1918十一月(NOVEMBER)
德国签署了结束第一次世界大战的停战协定。
(Germany signs the armistice which ends World War One.)
1919六月(JUNE)
德国签署凡尔赛条约
(The Treaty of Versailles is signed by Germany.)

不得不接受的现实(A Bitter Pill to Swallow)
凡尔赛条约迫使德国与奥地利和匈牙利一道承担第一次世界大战的责任,支付巨额赔偿费,并让出大片领土。它还旨在防止德国的再军事化。该条约的惩罚性条款在德国受到广泛谴责,并导致对欧洲其他国家的不满情绪恶化。国际联盟是联合国的前身,是根据该条约成立的,目的是维护世界和平和防止进一步冲突。
(The Treaty of Versailles forces Germany to accept the blame for World War One alongside Austria and Hungary, to pay huge reparation fees, and to concede large areas of territory. It is also intended to prevent German remilitarisation. The punitive terms of the Treaty are widely denounced in Germany and lead to a festering resentment against the rest of Europe. The League of Nations, forerunner of the United Nations, is formed as a result of the Treaty in order to maintain world peace and prevent further conflict.)

1925十月(OCTOBER)
德国签署了《洛迦诺条约》。 除其他事项外,德国承诺永远不会再次入侵法国或比利时。
(Germany signs the Locarno Treaties. It promises, amongst other things, never to invade France or Belgium again.)
1928
《白里安-凯洛格非战公约》(又称为《巴黎非战公约》)被签署,包括德国、法国、英国和美国在内的签署国承诺不将战争作为解决争端的手段。
(The Kellogg-Briand Pact is signed. The signatories, including Germany, France, Britain, and the United States, promise not to use war as a means of solving disputes.)
1931
日本的关东军入侵中国的满洲,改名为满洲国。1932年,军队将最后一位满族皇帝宣统皇帝溥仪设为傀儡首领。
(Japan’s Kwantung army invades Manchuria in China, renaming it Manchukuo. In 1932 the army installs the last of the Manchu emperors, Puyi, the Xuantong Emperor, as a puppet leader.)
1933一月(JANUARY)
富兰克林·罗斯福成为美国总统。阿道夫·希特勒成为德国总理。
(Franklin D. Roosevelt becomes President of the United States. Adolf Hitler becomes Chancellor of Germany.)
1934八月(AUGUST)
冯·兴登堡总统去世后,希特勒完全控制了德国。
(Hitler takes absolute control of Germany after the death of President von Hindenburg.)
1935 二月(FEBRUARY)
罗伯特·沃森·瓦特进行了距离和测向(RDF)概念验证测试。美国海军在1940年引入了另一个术语“雷达”。
(Robert Watson-Watt carries out a proof of concept test of Range and Direction Finding (RDF). The US Navy introduces the alternative term “RADAR” in 1940.)
1936三月(MARCH)
莱茵兰危机:德国为响应法国和苏联1935年的互助协定而重新武装莱茵兰。尽管这直接违反了《凡尔赛条约》和《洛迦诺条约》,但英法两国并没有采取任何行动与反对。
(The Rhineland Crisis: the remilitarisation of the Rhineland by Germany in response to France and the Soviet Union’s mutual assistance agreement of 1935. Although this is in direct contravention of the Treaty of Versailles and the Locarno Treaties, Britain and France do nothing to oppose it.)
七月(JULY)
西班牙内战始于共和党人和弗朗西斯科·佛朗哥(法西斯)民族主义者之间。战争在1939年4月佛朗哥获胜后结束。
(The Spanish Civil War begins between the Republicans and Francisco Franco’s (Fascist) Nationalists. The war ends with Franco’s victory in April 1939.)

(Germany begins to practice its aerial warfare tactics with the bombing of the Spanish town of Guernica, carried out by the Luftwaffe’s Condor Legion.)
七月(JULY)
卢沟桥桥事件后,日本侵略中国,试图控制中国的物质资源。(译注:原文为马可波罗桥,是西方人称呼卢沟桥的名称。)
(Japan invades China after the Marco Polo Bridge Incident, seeking to take control of the country’s material resources.)

西奥多·奥布里格和约翰·马伦发明了第一种全塑料隐形眼镜。
(Theodore Obrig and John Mullen develop the first all-plastic contact lenses.)
三月(MARCH)
奥地利被德国吞并,这一事件被称为“德奥合并事件”。
(Austria is annexed by Germany in an event called the Anschluss.)
九月(SEPTEMBER)
慕尼黑协定:在法国和英国迫不及待地避免另一场战争同意希特勒的要求,之后德国成功地获得了捷克斯洛伐克讲德语的苏台德兰地区。
(The Munich Agreement: Germany successfully acquires the Sudetenland, a German-speaking part of Czechoslovakia, after the French and British, desperate to avoid another war, accede to Hitler’s demands.)
1939三月(MARCH)
德国入侵捷克斯洛伐克其他地区。英国和法国仍然毫无所作为。
(Germany invades the rest of Czechoslovakia. Britain and France still do nothing.)

德国和意大利签署了钢铁条约,承诺两国之间的合作与支持。
(The Pact of Steel is signed between Germany and Italy, promising cooperation and support between the two nations.)
八月(AUGUST)
苏德互不侵犯(莫洛托夫-里宾特洛普)条约被签署,令所有人惊讶的是,纳粹对共产主义的仇恨有据可查。
(The German-Soviet (Molotov-Ribbentrop) Pact is signed, much to everyone’s surprise, given the well-documented Nazi hatred of communism.)
九月(SEPTEMBER)
1日:德国入侵波兰(白色方案),使用所谓的“闪电战”战术,即闪电战;所谓的“特别行动小组”或“机动杀戮部队”埃恩斯格鲁彭开始在前线后处决波兰犹太人和其他非战斗人员。3日:英法向德国宣战。大西洋之战始于“雅典娜”号客轮在大西洋罗卡尔海岸沉没。11日:英国远征军(BEF)抵达法国本土。17日:苏联入侵波兰。
(1st: Germany invades Poland (Case White), using what will become known as “lightning war” tactics, or Blitzkrieg; Einsatzgruppen, the so-called “special action groups” or “mobile killing units”, begin executing Polish Jews and other non-combatants behind the frontlines. 3rd: Britain and France declare war on Germany. The Battle of the Atlantic begins with the sinking of the passenger liner SS Athenia off the coast of Rockall in the Atlantic Ocean. 11th: troops of the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) arrive on French soil. 17th: the Soviet Union invades Poland.)

威悉河演习:德国通过丹麦入侵挪威,以确保铁矿石供应。
(The Weser-Exercise: Germany invades Norway via Denmark to secure supplies of iron ore.)

回复:工会(Re: Union)
奥地利被德国吞并经常被形容为一场“不流血”的政治和军事政变。然而,政治异见者和不受欢迎的人被围捕起来,并以某种方式被除名。这一行动还导致英国皇家海军的动员。
(Austria’s annexation by Germany is often described as a “bloodless” political and military coup. However, political dissidents and undesirables are rounded up and removed, one way or another. The action also leads to the mobilisation of the British Royal Navy.)
举杯庆祝(Raise a Glass)
游击战中的传奇武器:莫洛托夫的鸡尾酒,在苏芬“冬季战争”中首次亮相,它是以令人憎恨的苏联外交部长维亚切斯拉夫莫洛托夫命名的,尽管过去也有类似的燃烧武器。
(The legendary guerrilla warfare weapon, the Molotov Cocktail, makes its first appearance during the SovietFinnish “Winter War”, although there have been similar incendiary weapons in the past. It is named after the hated Soviet Foreign Minister, Vyacheslav Molotov.)
一个宣传妙计(A Propaganda Coup)
“发电机行动”是一个典型的从失败中夺取胜利的例子,至少在公众心中是这样。“小艇”和英国皇家海军的联合作战持续了九天,救援了大约338000人(其中有200000人是英国人),但实际上(这些人)没有装备,这使得英国军队在几年内处于明显的劣势。许多获救的法国士兵坚持要求立即被遣返。
(Operation Dynamo is a classic example of snatching victory from the jaws of defeat, at least in the hearts and minds of the public. The combined operation by the “little ships” and the British Royal Navy lasts for nine days and rescues approximately 338,000 men (nearly 200,000 of whom are British) but virtually no equipment, leaving British forces at a distinct disadvantage for several years. Many of the French soldiers rescued insist on being repatriated immediately.)
甜蜜的复仇(Sweet Revenge)
法国停战协定将该国分为北部占领区和南部自由区,由菲利普·贝当元帅的傀儡维希政权管理。希特勒出于最大的的报复之心,坚持要在1918年德国签署停战协定时的同一节车厢、同一地点举行这一事件。他甚至和他的前任马歇尔·福赫坐在同一张椅子上。三天后,他摧毁了这个遗址,并把马车作为战利品运到柏林。
(The French armistice divides the country into a northern Occupied Zone and a southern “Free Zone”, run by the puppet Vichy regime under Marshal Philippe Pétain. Hitler, in an act of supreme vindictiveness, insists that the event take place in exactly the same railway carriage and at exactly the same location used when Germany signed the armistice in 1918. He even sits in the same chair as his predecessor, Marshal Foch. He has the site destroyed three days later, and the carriage taken to Berlin as a war trophy.)
五月(MAY)
英国军队在在冰岛驻扎,以防止德国军队占领。 内维尔·张伯伦辞职后,丘吉尔就任英国首相。 10日:德军入侵法国,始于假装入侵中立国家比利时和荷兰,从而使法国和BEF部队通过阿登森林(黄色方案)脱离了实际进攻区域。 德军于12日越过法国边境。 荷兰和比利时向德国投降。 英国开始进行发电机计划,即从的敦刻尔克撤出BEF和法国军队。
(British troops take up positions in Iceland to prevent occupation by German forces. Churchill becomes British Prime Minister after Neville Chamberlain resigns. 10th: the German invasion of France begins with a feint into neutral countries Belgium and the Netherlands, drawing French and BEF troops away from the real area of attack through the Forest of Ardennes (Case Yellow). German troops cross the French border there on 12th. The Netherlands and Belgium surrender to Germany. Operation Dynamo, the evacuation of BEF and French armies from Dunkirk, begins.)
六月(JUNE)
英国特种部队是建立在波尔孔曼多部队结构的基础上。直到1941年,人们才知道他们更著名的名字“突击队”(第36页)。5日:法国之战(红色方案)开始。9日:挪威向德国投降。10日:意大利向英法宣战。14日:巴黎被德国人占领。21日:意大利入侵法国南部。22日:法国与德国签署停战协定。两天后,法国也被迫与意大利签署停战协定。
(British Special Service Unit forces are established, based on Boer kommando troop structure. They do not become known by their more famous name, the Commandos, until 1941 (p.36). 5th: the Battle of France (Case Red) begins. 9th: Norway surrenders to Germany. 10th: Italy declares war on Britain and France. 14th: Paris is captured by the Germans. 21st: Italy invades southern France. 22nd: France signs an armistice with Germany. Two days later, France is also forced to sign an armistice with Italy.)
七月(JULY)
英国情报局D区、军情处和Electra House(EH)合并,组成特别行动执行局(SOE;第41页)。形成了Folboat部队,这是以他们用于作战的折叠独木舟命名的; 它后来被称为特别舟艇团(SBS)。 不列颠之战开始。
(The British Intelligence Service departments Section D, MI-R, and Electra House (EH) are merged to form the Special Operations Executive (SOE; p.41). The Folboat Troop is formed, named after the folding canoes they use for operations; it will later be known as the Special Boat Section (SBS). The Battle of Britain begins.)

(27th: the Tripartite Act is signed between Germany, Italy, and Japan. Japanese forces occupy French Indochina under the guise of co-operation with the French authorities, as part of their Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere plan. Operation Seelöwe (Sealion), the proposed German invasion of Britain, is indefinitely postponed after the Luftwaffe fails to destroy the RAF.)
十月(OCTOBER)
在法国昂代举行的一次会议上,希特勒开始了一系列试图使弗朗哥加入轴心国战争的尝试。在必要的条件下无法达成协议,部分原因是盟国向佛朗哥行贿,尽管西班牙继续尽可能秘密地援助德国人。
(Hitler begins the first of a series of attempts to woo Franco into joining the war on the side of the Axis during a meeting at Hendaye, France. An agreement cannot be reached on the necessary terms, in part due to huge bribes being paid to Franco by the Allies, although Spain continues to covertly aid the Germans wherever possible.)
1941一月(JANUARY)
达德利·克拉克中校开始研究完全虚构的特别空勤团(SAS),作为他战略欺骗活动“Abeam行动”的一部分。英国广播公司(BBC)比利时分部的维克多·德拉维利(Victor de Laveleye)提议开展“V”运动,以在欧洲争取安蒂纳齐的支持;丘吉尔对这一想法非常着迷,他开始用“V代表胜利”的手势。(译注:关于文中出现的Abeam行动完全没有找到相应的东西)
(Lt. Col. Dudley Clarke begins work on the entirely fictitious Special Air Service (SAS) as part of his disinformation campaign, Operation Abeam.

六月(JUNE)
大卫·斯特林获得了组建SAS第一支真正的分遣队的许可。22日:德国入侵苏联的“巴巴罗萨行动”开始;尽管苏联、英国和美国情报部门一再发出警告,但约瑟夫·斯大林基本上还是大吃一惊。默认情况下,苏联现在成为盟国之一。芬兰开始了与苏联的第二次战争,以支持德国的入侵。
(David Stirling receives permission to form the first real detachment of the SAS. 22nd: Operation Barbarossa, the German invasion of the Soviet Union, begins; despite repeated warnings from Soviet, British, and American intelligence, Josef Stalin is largely taken by surprise. The Soviet Union, by default, now becomes one of the Allies. Finland begins its second war with the Soviets in support of the German invasion.)
七月(JULY)
英国将冰岛的控制权移交给美国。斯大林实行焦土政策,拒绝向入侵的德国军队提供资源。

“我们的人民、我们的领土和我们的利益处于严重危险之中,这一事实不容忽视。”—富兰克林·D·罗斯福
(“There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger.” — Franklin D. Roosevelt)
1942一月(JANUARY)
联合国实际上是由《大西洋宪章》的签署者组成的。“击鼓”行动,被德国潜艇水兵称为“第二次快乐时光”,开始于U型潜艇封锁沿美国东海岸的航运。
(The United Nations is effectively formed by the signatories of the Atlantic Charter. Operation Drumbeat, known by German submariners as the “second happy time”, begins with U-boats attacking shipping along the East Coast of America.)
二月(FEBRUARY)

三月(MARCH)
突击队发动了战车行动,摧毁了圣纳泽尔的干船坞。青霉素慢慢的开始大规模生产,最初生产的一半只用于治疗一个病人。到1944年6月,美国为D日及时生产了200多万剂。
(The Commando raid Operation Chariot takes place, destroying the dry dock at Saint-Nazaire. The mass production of penicillin begins slowly, with half of the first production run used to treat just one patient. By June 1944, the United States produces over two million doses in time for D-Day.)

(The Battle of Stalingrad begins.)
十月(OCTOBER)
希特勒宣布了Kommandobefehl(突击队命令):所有的敌方突击队一见到就都将其击毙,不管武装状况如何,即使他们投降。
(Hitler announces the Kommandobefehl (the Commando Order): all enemy commandos are to be shot on sight, regardless of armed status, even if they are surrendering.)
十一月(NOVEMBER)
火炬行动:美国领导的对非洲西北部维希占领区的入侵开始了,自由的法国士兵与他们的支持维希同胞战斗。德国军队进入空无一人的法国,以回应维希政府随后的投降(安东行动);法国舰队被击溃。东线开始转向反对德国军队。
(Operation Torch: the US-led invasion of Vichy Northwest Africa, begins, with Free French soldiers fighting their Vichy-supporting countrymen. German troops march into unoccupied France in response to the Vichy regime’s subsequent surrender (Operation Anton); the French fleet is scuttled. The war on the Eastern Front begins to turn against the German Army.)
V来拯救?(V for Salvation?)
V字是由比利时前司法部长维克托·德·拉弗勒耶选定的,因为V字是Victor(胜利)的第一个字母,victoire这个单词和vrijheid(荷兰语和佛兰德语,意思是自由)。1941年6月,V的摩尔斯电码(三个点加一个破折号)与贝多芬第五交响曲的开场同时播放,这让很多人想起了摩尔斯版本的字母,成为了BBC欧洲电台的标识信号。亚历斯特·克劳利声称,这个想法实际上是他的,这个符号形成了一个抵御纳粹党所用的十字记号的保护符,把它交给了BBC来帮助英国的战争努力。他还说,他建议丘吉尔从7月起就使用这个著名的手势来达到同样的目的。然而,德国宣传部长约瑟夫•戈培尔(Joseph Goebbels)试图利用这一象征,尽管德语中表示胜利的词是“Sieg”,这导致竞选活动逐渐失宠。
(The letter V is chosen by former Belgian Minister of Justice, Victor de Laveleye, because it is the first letter of victory, victoire, and vrijheid (the Dutch and Flemish word for freedom). In June, 1941, the Morse code for V— three dots and a dash—and the opening of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, which reminds quite a few people of the Morse version of the letter, are broadcast together, becoming the BBC’s European station identifier signal. Aleister Crowley claims that the idea is actually his, with the symbol forming a protective ward against the power of the swastika, passing it to the BBC to help the British war effort. He also claims that he advised Churchill to use the famous hand gesture from July for very much the same purpose. However, Joseph Goebbels, Reichsminister of Propaganda, attempts to co-opt the symbol, even though the German word for victory is “Sieg”, leading to the campaign slowly falling out of favour.)
1943一月(JANUARY)
蒙哥马利领导的盟军进入利比亚和突尼斯。斯大林格勒的包围结束。
(Allied troops under Montgomery enter Libya and Tunisia. The siege of Stalingrad ends.)
五月(MAY)
北非战争随着突尼斯的沦陷(火神行动)而结束。惩戒行动别名“Dambusters”(堤坝终结者)袭击,针对鲁尔河上的莫纳,埃德尔和索普大坝。这是德国U型潜艇的“黑色五月”,25%的U型潜艇舰队沉没;这被认为是大西洋战役的转折点。
(The war in North Africa ends with the fall of Tunis (Operation Vulcan). Operation Chastise, the Dambusters raids, against the Möhne, Eder, and Sorpe dams in the Ruhr Valley take place. It is “Black May” for German U-boats, with twenty-five percent of the U-boat fleet sunk; this is considered the turning point in the Battle of the Atlantic.)
七月(JULY)

杀死希特勒(Killing Hitler)
虽然克劳斯·冯·斯塔芬伯格上校的暗杀企图是最著名的一次,但决不是唯一的一次。尽管德国的抵抗在整个战争中是断断续续的,而且很大程度上是个人的,但在1944年7月之前,有几次试图除掉希特勒的尝试。其中最早的一次是在1934年,但这一次被发现,而且至少有一名阴谋者被关押达豪集中营。另一个是1938年的奥斯特阴谋,由于英国和法国对德国在苏台德危机上的绥靖政策而被否定。1939年11月被称为慕尼黑情节,失败是因为希特勒早早离开了贝格勃劳凯勒啤酒馆勉强避开了一次为他准备的炸弹爆炸。1943年3月,深知战争正在向他们转变,德国多名高级军事人物,其中许多人还参与了1944年7月的阴谋,企图炸毁希特勒正在乘坐的一架飞机,并将炸弹安放在一瓶假白兰地中。但这个装置失灵了,可能是因为飞机舱内温度低。希特勒在1943年越来越偏执和离开了公众生活视野中,严重阻碍了进一步的尝试。关于元首的“魔鬼运气”的谣言开始流传,因为每一次尝试都被神秘地挫败了…
(Whilst Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg’s assassination attempt is one of the most famous, it is by no means the only one. Although German resistance throughout the war is fragmentary and largely individual, there are several attempts to remove Hitler before July 1944. One of the earliest is in 1934, but this is discovered, and at least one of the conspirators sent to Dachau. Another, the Oster Conspiracy of 1938, is negated by Britain and France’s appeasement of Germany over the Sudetenland Crisis. In November, 1939, the so-called Munich Plot fails because Hitler leaves the Bürgerbräukeller early, narrowly missing a bomb blast meant for him. In March 1943, well aware the war is turning against them, a variety of senior German military figures, many of them also involved in the July 1944 plot, attempt to blow up a plane Hitler is travelling on with a bomb planted in a fake bottle of Cognac. But the device fails, probably because of the low temperatures in the plane’s hold. Hitler’s increasing paranoia and withdrawal from public life in 1943 seriously hampers further attempts. Rumours began to circulate regarding the Führer’s “Devil’s Luck” as each and every attempt is mysteriously thwarted...)

快递(Express Delivery)
对于盟军战争时期作出的努力来说,从解放的法国港口向前进中的前线提供补给是至关重要的。为了确保这一点,设置了红球快车。这条路线主要由非裔美国军人驾驶,以红色小球为标志,禁止平民通行。卡车本身也用红球标出,以确保在使用民用道路时优先通行。1944年11月,随着安特卫普港的解放,这项服务停止了。
(It is essential for the Allied war effort that supplies are maintained from liberated French ports to the advancing front. To ensure this, the Red Ball Express is set up. Mostly driven by African-American troops, the route is marked with red balls and closed to civilian traffic. The trucks themselves are also marked out with red balls to ensure they receive priority when using civilian roads. The service is halted in November 1944 with the liberation of the port of Antwerp.)

但是其余的呢?(But Where’s  The Rest Of It?)
在现实世界中,第二次世界大战的事件一直持续到1945年末,轴心国部队最终投降,并在随后的几年中感受到了大量的反响。但这不是真实的世界,也不能保证事情会以完全相同的方式发展。事实上,秘密战争的幕后黑手已经有了一个策略,一旦事情不再顺其自然,该怎么办。这个计划的细节可以在即将到来的《注意! 克苏鲁: 攻打疯狂山脉战役》,以及《注意! 克苏鲁:再见宝贝》中补充
(In the real world, the events of World War Two continue to unfold until late 1945, with the eventual surrender of the Axis forces and a host of repercussions that are felt for many years afterwards. But this is not the real world, and there is no guarantee that things will turn out in quite the same way at all. In fact, the shadowy forces behind the Secret War have a strategy in place for what to do once it becomes clear that things are no longer going their way. Details of that plan can be found in the upcoming Achtung! Cthulhu: Assault on the Mountains of Madness campaign, and the Achtung! Cthulhu: Bye Bye Baby supplement.)
