|The Holcroft Covenant. By Robert Ludlum by GooseBump: 9:51pm On Sep 12|
In 1945 the children of the Third Reich were secretly hidden allbover the world to be concealed until the 1970s when they would come of age.
Then the most elaborate plans and $780 million in a Swiss bank would be waiting. There would even be an unsuspecting outsider to set the plan into action. That outsider is Neil Holcroft, the American son of a high ranking Nazi. He's just been shown an amazing document, the Holcroft Covenant. If he signs, it will be his own death warrant and a devastating threat to the security of the world.

The hull of the submarine was lashed to the huge pillings, a behemoth strapped in silhouette, the sweeping lines of its bow arching into the light of the North Sea dawn.
The base was on the island of Scharhorn, in the Helgoland Bight, several miles from the German mainland and the mouth of the Elbe River. it was a refueling station never detected by Allied Intelligence and, in the cause of security, little known among the strategists of the German High Command itself. The undersea marauders came and went in darkness, emerging and submerging within several hundred feet of the moorings. They were Neptune's assassins, coke home to rest or going forth to press their attacks.
On this particular dawn, however, the submarine lashed to the dock was doing neither. For it, the war was over, its assignment intrinsic to the origins of another war.
Two men stood in the well of the conning tower, one in the uniform of a commanding officer of the German Navy, the other a tall civilian in a long dark overcoat. Both looked down at the long line of passengers who slowly made their way toward the gangplank amidships.
As each passenger reached the plank, a name was checked off against a list, and he or she was led or carried aboard a submarine.
A few walked themselves, but they were the exceptions. they were the oldest, some having reached their twelfth or thirteenth birthdays.
The rest were children. Infants in the arms of stern faced army nurses, who surrendered their charges to a unit of navy doctors at the plank; preschoolers, and early graders clutching identical travelling kits and bone another's hands, peering up at the strange black vessel that was to be their homes for weeks to come.
"Incredible," said the officer. "Simply incredible."
"Its the beginning," replied the man in overcoat, his sharp, angular features rigid. "Word cones from everywhere. From the ports and the mountain passes, from the remaining airfields all over the Reich. They go out by thousand. to every part of the world. And people are waiting for them. Everywhere.
" An extraordinary achievement" said the officer shaking his head in awe.
"This is only one part of the strategy. the entire operation is extraordinary."
"Its and honor to have you here."
"I wanted to be. This is the last shipment." The talk civilian kept his eyes on the dock below. "The Third Reich is dying. These are its rebirth. These are the Fourth Reich. Unencumbered by mediocrity and corruption.
These are the Sonnenkinder. All over the world."
"The children ....."
"The Children of the Dammed," said the man, interrupting. "They are the Children of the Dammed, as millions will be. But none will be like these. And these will be everywhere."
