Having completed Three Kings, the first part of the Zero Point campaign for Achtung! Cthulhu by Sarah Newton, we launch into the second part, Heroes of the Sea. The year is 1940 and the Phony War is over! Poland has been invaded and now it is the turn of the Low Countries and France. The British Expeditionary Force has been sent to thwart the German invasion, but neither it nor its allied French and Belgian forces can withstand the speed, daring, and technological advantages of the German’s blitzkrieg. By May 1940, allied forces have been pushed back into a tiny pocket in northern France and London has had no choice but to launch Operation Dynamo—evacuate the troops!
Yet even as the allied armies are preparing to withdraw, Section D of British Intelligence receives a desperate message from Agent WOTAN, alerting London to a bigger threat. Then nothing more is heard from the agent, last known to be in northern France. Desperate to know more, Section D dispatches the out of favor team that failed to learn all in Czechoslovakia across the channel… Can the team locate Agent WOTAN? Will they make it across France in safety?
