It’s 1940 and, despite having thwarted a Nazi plot in Lisbon to release deadly uranium over London, Harry Antonelli has succeeded in wearing out his welcome in Portugal. He has that knack. So, Harry hops a freighter to Havana, but he soon finds himself on the outs with the gangsters who run Cuba. He is taken in by the beautiful daughter of an army general, who barely tolerates her “gigolo.” After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the general seizes the opportunity to ship Harry home “to do his patriotic duty.” But, all is not well in Seattle either.
Harry returns home to find his best friend, Saburo (Chuck) Shimizu, and his family being loaded onto a bus and moved to an internment camp, so Harry decides to aggressively intervene. David Booth—operative of an ultra-secret government agency, and brother of Dorothy, Harry’s ex-girlfriend—springs Harry from jail.
David, who disapproves of Harry in general, asks him to woo Dorothy. He fears her current beau may be an enemy agent. The Agency believes that a plot is brewing to sabotage Boeing’s production of the B-17—the bomber vital for destruction of Germany’s war machine—and to kill thousands of workers in the process. As part of his effort to help David root out spies and saboteurs. Harry accepts the mission of courting Dorothy, who happens to be on a secret assignment, too. Harry does have help on his impossible mission: an alcoholic ex-cellmate and his band of cohorts, and a spry 82-year-old widow.
ou are certain you can accomplish this?”said the German, a man of immense power who had once been, among other things, a failed chicken farmer.
“Yes, Herr Reichsführer.”
“The individual you will be reporting to was persistent at our consulate in San Francisco, and is the originator of this proposal.”
“Yes sir, so I am given to understand. I will obey all orders.”
“Our diplomats on their western coast have been persecuted and deported, singled out for our friendship with Japan, who America baits and taunts without cause. Soon, I feel, our American embassy and consulates will be closed altogether.”
“I am discreet,” the man said. “I will obey and serve the Führer in any way imaginable.”
“You were so convincing that your upcoming steamship passage and lodging in this hotel room has been paid for by us.”
The man glanced at the room’s window and its view of the alley. The hotel wasn’t a fleabag, but it was out-of-the-way. The Reichsführer-SS was dressed immaculately in double-breasted pinstripes. The SS officers who brought him here were in uniform, waiting outside in the hallway.
He had trouble holding eye contact with his host. The man was soft with an undefined chin. The sides of his head were shaved, the top allowed to grow, and slicked down. He had a hint of a mustache, a faint copy of his Führer’s.
“I am grateful, sir, and devoted to your cause. The Jewish Communist international banking conspiracy is a worldwide enemy.”
“I must say that the Führer is skeptical, but enthusiastic if the plan works. He has given me a free hand in this matter, pending his final approval.”
“I am honored that you agreed to meet with me.”
“You have not been to America, nor have I.”
“No sir. I look forward to it.”
“I think of you as a chameleon, able to blend into any society. You speak several languages without an accent. This is commendable and useful.”
“Yes sir. Thank you.”
The United States of America, the Reichsführer-SS thought. A vast and rich land weakened by their increasing mongrelization and their diminishing resolve. Their pioneers had been of sturdy Aryan stock. As they moved westward, they killed the aborigines with guns and disease. Later, due to easy prosperity, they softened. But in a brilliant move, their government contrived to have the Custer soldiers eradicated to the last man by the savages.
This generated an outrage that put an end to the nuisance; the sub-humans that were not eradicated were placed in camps they euphemistically called reservations. As the Third Reich was doing now for all the same exemplary reasons.
