Synopsis for "War in Heaven"
In Bavaria, 1942, a Nazi soldier arrives at Castle von Hammer and tries to convince its owner, Hans von Hammer to join him as a pilot, flying against Russia. Reluctantly, Von Hammer agrees.
On his first day as flight leader, Von Hammer buzzes the gathered pilots in his bright red plane. An hour later he takes the first flight up. They encounter a group of Mig 3s and run them off, destroying twelve in the process.
After the planes have landed, Hauptman Engels inspects the troops and notices that Von Hammer's red plane is missing a swastika. He says he'll have Von Hammer's ground crew remedy that and Von Hammer tells him not to do that. Engels stalks away.
In the air above Leningrad, Von Hammer and his squadron take out a squadron of Indians. Von Hammer makes Ace in a day, killing three of them himself.
In January, 1943, Engels approaches Von Hammer in the barracks and tells him to report to Berlin to be awarded the Knights Cross by Adolf Hitler, awarded when a pilot has 50 confirmed kills. Von Hammer has 63 since he began leading the German pilots. Von Hammer burns the communique Engels brought him and says he has no time for medals.
Above the skies of Leningrad, a pilot falls into Von Hammer's rotor, causing the plane to crash. He manages to hook up with a German soldier who is killed by a sniper's bullet. Von Hammer takes cover and from safety, watches as a child throws a grenade at a tank and is riddled with bullets from the tanks machine gunner. Eventually, Von Hammer is captured by Russians. As they are roughing him up, a Mastiff appears and kills the soldiers. Von Hammer walks back to his camp.
Once again in the skies, Von Hammer's squadron is attacked by English Hurricanes. The English planes destroy two of the German planes and Von Hammer turns tail and runs.
Back at the barracks he talks with a friend of his who remarks that now the English are involved it seems like the entire world has turned against Germany. Von Hammer wonders why.
