    Otto x3!

    Yeah, you don't get to lead a mission like that without being an officer. I see he was an SS-Obersturmbannführer (lieutenant colonel), the same rank as Eichmann. I'm actually surprised he didn't rise higher by the end of the war: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otto_Skorzeny

    Right, then. Your next letter is
