Bookworm, Arnold Hitler, escapes to Berlin to look up his long lost brother, but it isn't as easy as he thought. At first, no one believes his story and he barely escapes execution. Then, his fortunes improve dramatically and he finds himself welcomed by the Fuehrer himself.
He is conscripted into the SS, and is now a high ranking officer confused by the insane beliefs he is expected to embrace. Surrounded by Adolph's fanatical and powerful henchmen, he is forced to embark on a series of wild adventures that both enlighten and terrify him.
Arnold is enamored of the perquisites enjoyed by his fellow Nazi officers, but he can't shake the nagging guilt he feels as he sees the havoc and human destruction all around him. He is part of the inner circle and is privy to the most secret information: the proliferation of death camps, rocket technology advances, the plan to build nuclear weapons, jet aircraft manufacturing, and more and more aggression toward more of the world.
Things get complicated when he is ordered to infiltrate a high security British facility to spy for the Fatherland. There, he is exposed to highly sensitive and secret information that could cause an allied defeat, or alter the course of the war by misleading the enemy. To whom should he dedicate his loyalty?
Finally, he reaches a decision point: Does he go along with the goal of world domination and purification of the races, or will his lifelong values sustain him and direct him to help overthrow the Thousand Year Reich?
Then, another more dangerous assignment, the most important one of all! Arnold digs deep into his soul and makes his move, risking everything to help end the war!
