Historical Correction Guide
To: Historical Correction Mission Team From: Oberführer Werner Schumutzig, Phd
Below are guidelines take must be followed for all team members directly involved in a Historical Correction Mission (HCM). These were all hard lessons learned through Operation Sieg and Operation Phönix. • Obey your HCM commander without question. He or she has the experience to know what will and will not work
• Time is a torrent ever pushing forward. Understand that small changes can have big impacts. Trying to make the big impact usually results in unexpected consequences, generally resulting in a failure of the HCM
• Do not shoot people in the historical time matrix. They are in a different time matrix from you and the matrix will generally try to self correct
• Do not shoot other members of the HCM team. Although the team has entered a historical time matrix, your team members are still in the same time matrix as you. Thus, shooting at team members will result in their injury or death
• Avoid contact with other people in the historical time matrix as it may introduce unexpected outcomes to the HCM
• Only Dr Schumutzig is able to close and open the portal from the historical matrix side. The portal cannot be closed from the current time matrix side unless all team members have returned. Dr Schumutzig closes the historical matrix side (when a part of the team) to prevent historical subjects from passing into the current time matrix The penalty for failure to follow these guidelines is an immediate transfer to the Eastern Front to be a common rifleman. Sieg Heil!
Doctor Werner Schumutzig
Born: April 20, 1900, Greifswald, Germany Education: PhD Physics, University of Greifswald Specialty: Gravitational Physics SS Rank: Oberführer (between Coronel and General) SS Division: Sonderwaffen Abteilung (Special Weapons Division) Dr. Schumutzig has done extensive research into the alternation and uses of gravity. Know research projects: 1936: Luftschloss: Dr. Schumutzig created and commanded the Luftschloss, a flying airstrip. The flight crews the Luftschloss destroyed a number of transport aircraft in the Caribbean Sea region. With the use of aircraft from Howard Huges, Brent Hardcastle, Amelia Valentine, and Nathanial Davenport managed to thwart is plans and escape from the plummeting airfield as it crashed into the sea.
1938: Z-Bomb: Dr. Schumutzig had advanced his research to the point of being able to use gravity as a weapon. He planned to blow up New York City, New York as a demonstration of German power. His work was nearing completion in Antarctica when once again Brent Hardcastle, Amelia Valentine, and Nathanial Davenport managed to thwart is plans. It is thought that Dr Schumutzig had died in the massive implosion and destruction of the rocket that was meant to deliver the Z-Bomb to New York
1945: Project Unknown Dr. Schumutzig recently resurfaced based on information from the defection of Dr.Werner Wagner. Dr Wagner was stationed as the same underground facility on the island of Bornholm. He supposedly has developed something that could change the course of the War.

August 20, 1940
The Great Purge was a series of campaigns of political repression and persecution in the Soviet Union orchestrated by Joseph Stalin in 1936-1938. It involved a large-scale purge of the Communist Party and Government officials, repression of peasants, Red Army leadership, and the persecution of unaffiliated persons, characterized by widespread police surveillance, widespread suspicion of “saboteurs”, imprisonment, and executions. In Russian historiography the period of the most intense purge, 1937-1938, is called Yezhovshchina, after Nikolai Yezhov, the head of the Soviet secret police, NKVD.
Insertion point June 20, 1935. Added names of key generals to the purge lists.
January 27, 1942
The attack on Pearl Harbor took place before any formal declaration of war was made by Japan, but this was not Admiral Yamamoto’s intention. He originally stipulated that the attack should not commence until thirty minutes after Japan had informed the United States that peace negotiations were at an end. The Japanese tried to uphold the conventions of war while still achieving surprise, but the attack began before the notice could be delivered. Tokyo transmitted the 5,000-word notification (commonly called the “14-Part Message”) in two blocks to the Japanese Embassy in Washington, but transcribing the message took too long for the Japanese Ambassador to deliver it in time..
Insertion point December 7, 1941.. Hid transmissions from Japanese in with other, more mundane communications.
May 20, 1942
Franklin D. Roosevelt’s paralytic illness began in 1921 at age 39, when Roosevelt got a fever after exercising heavily at a vacation in Canada. While his illness was well known during his terms as President of the United States, how debilitated he was due to his illness was kept from public view. After his death, his illness and paralysis became a major part of his image. He was diagnosed with poliomyelitis two weeks after he fell ill.
Insertion point May 20, 1921. Injected Roosevelt with poison. Failure – developed polo but still a force as president.
There have been numerous attempts on Hitler’s life. To a large degree, Hitler’s innate luck saved him from certain death. However, Operation Phönix was authorized four times. An unfortunate result is that the Führer has become more unstable after each historical correction. March 20, 1943
Colonel Rudolf von Gertsdorff, General Kluge’s chief of intelligence, tried to kill Hitler in the Zeughaus. The concealed bomb was to be detonated by acid while he stood close to Hitler in the exhibit hall. Hitler left the building before the acid could act and Gertsdorff immediately entered the men’s room and flushed the fuse down the toilet. Insertion point March 19th. Adjusted Hitler’s itinerary by 10 minutes. March 11, 1944
Cavalry Captain Eberhard von Breitenbuch attended a conference at Hitler’s villa the ‘Berghof’ on the Obersalzberg. Concealed on his person was a small Browning pistol with which he intended to shoot his Führer and at the same time was willing to sacrifice his own life in the attempt. Breitenbuch enters the conference room behind Field Marshal Ernst Busch, who suspects nothing, but as he approaches the door he is stopped by the Duty Sergeant who explains “Sorry, no adjutants beyond this point, Führers orders”.
Insertion point March 10th. Add line to daily orders for March 11th.
July 11, 1944
Staff Officer Lt. Colonel Count Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg attended a conference at the Berghof. Concealed inside his briefcase was a time bomb. Waiting outside in a gateaway car was his co-conspirator, Captain Friedrich Klausing. Inside the Berghof, Stauffenberg telephones his colleagues in Berlin to tell them that neither Goering nor Himmler is present. They insist that the attempt be aborted. Stauffenberg then returns to Berlin to plan his next assassination attempt.
Insertion point July 10th. Delayed Goering and Himmler in traffic until Staufeenberg calls off the attempt.
July 20, 1944
Thirty six year-old Stauffenberg’s final attempt. At 12.00pm Stauffenberg and General Fromm report to Field Marshal Keitel’s office for a briefing before entering the conference room. At 12.37pm, Stauffenberg places his briefcase, containing 2,000 grams of Plastik-W explosives, under the map table, then leaves the room on the pretext of making a telephone call. The officer Colonel Brandt, No.4 who took his place noticed the briefcase and with his foot pushed it further under the table. The heavy oak table support protected Hitler from the full force of the explosion. At 12.42pm, the bomb explodes. Insertion point July 15th. Multiple approaches attempted. Success by having a servant (Sonderwaffen Abteilung man) slightly redirect Colonel Brandt’s path so his foot intersects the briefcase.
Operation Flying Schnitzel An extension of Operation Sieg
This very well may be our last chance to alter the course of the war. While our efforts brought great success at the beginning of the War, the outcome continues to trend to defeat. Based on the unbiased study of the situation, our failure to proceed with Operation Sea Lion (the invasion of Britain) continues to haunt the War effort. Britain has provided a staging ground that allows the Americans and British to build up their forces with impunity. The Atlantic Wall failed miserably.
As we look back to the so called Battle of Britain, one event stands out as a turning point. A wayward Heinkel HE 111 (named the Flying Schnitzel) on an early morning raid dropped its payload in central London suburb August 25, 1940 despite the express forbiddance of our Fuhrer. This lone bomber changed the direction of the Battle. Churchill countered this bombing by bombing Berlin. Hitler, enraged, ordered the destruction of British cities – a complete change in strategy up to that point which had focusing on gaining air superiority over the skies of Britain. This change in course allowed the RAF to recover, and Operation Sea Lion was postponed and eventually cancelled.
Insertion point August 20, 1940.- We shall attempt the follow Historical Corrections • Put the crew on leave and perhaps keep in a location so they do not wander back (Time is odd that way) • Sabotage the plane • Jam the arming pins in the bombs, turning them into duds
