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 has alerted by Agent WOTAN of a bigger threat. Dispatched to northern France to cross the collapsing pocket held by allied forces, the team has managed to arrive safely thanks to some ‘ace’ driving by Flying Officer Astor, discovered why none of us can swim, prevented word getting out to the Germans, and learned where Agent WOTAN might be… Can they locate the missing agent? Will Stanley Cribbens be forever stuck in that bush? What is the fate of the Matilda?
