After the fall of France, Adolf Hitler orders his men to search the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris for the copy of The Necronomicon that is held within the institution. The Nazi's intend to use the occult powers within the mad Arab's tome to aid their plan for world domination. With the book in their possession a series of 16 experiments are carried out over the course of the next two years but all of them fail. However, in the spring of 1943 a high ranking Arab dignitary meets with Hitler, he has brought with him a cipher to The Necronomicon. Preparations begin for Experiment 17, but when the lead translator on the project goes completely insane the project is halted. Helmut Koch, the decorated officer and occultist leading the project is determined to conduct Experiment 17 whatever the cost, though. Written by
