A series of extraordinary events took place in the early Twentieth Century. The combined circumstances of a UFO crash in Nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler's lust for power delivered an opportunity for the defeated Third Reich to turn the tide of war in their favor and to change the course of world history. The events that took place were classified as top-secret. 

Hitler believed the only hope for victory was to advance his scientist's discoveries revealed from the recovered extraterrestrial craft. His scientists understood that the one top-secret project in development for over eight years and close to completion could deliver the power their Führer demanded.

Die Glocke, German for "The Bell," was a fifteen-foot tall bell-shaped craft driven by an advanced antigravity and free energy propulsion system. Die Glocke would have the ability to warp the fabric of space and time. When fully operational, Germany's high command planned its first and only mission. SS General Hans Kammler, the head of Germany's advanced weapons program, Wunderwaffe, would guide the craft into the past and alter the world's future.


The concept behind Die Glocke, The Battle For Time.

Stephen Shields, Die Glocke’s Creator

We all know time as a constant and unmovable force from which we cannot escape. We live it. The concept of time is altogether fascinating. While most people think of time as a constant, physicist Albert Einstein showed that time is an illusion; it is relative — it can vary for different observers depending on your speed through space. 

Understanding how to manipulate time would be man's most significant discovery. If this discovery were to fall into the wrong hands, it could be used as the most powerful weapon ever known. The present in which we live becomes the past with each passing second, and the future is always ahead of us. My concept for Die Glocke involves every aspect of time, the present, past, and future.

Sequence of events

A UFO crashes in Germany.

1936: A UFO crashes near the town of Freiburg in a remote area of Germany's Black Forest.

The Nazis begin reverse-engineering the alien technology.

The recovery of the craft became the genesis of Germany's advanced weapons program, the Wunderwaffe. The Nazi studies of the craft proved successful, and over time, they realized discoveries and advanced technologies that were considered seemingly impossible.

Post-war U.S. interrogations reveal continuing top-secret Nazi plans.

1946: At the end of WWII, the U.S. launched Operation Paperclip. The mission is to capture German scientists for their knowledge of advanced technologies. U.S. intelligence interrogators uncover the German's top-secret project Die Glocke and how S.S. General Hans Kammler transported the prototype and scientists to a secret military base in Antarctica to bring the craft fully operational. When completed, Die Glocke can transcend time, past, and future. If their information is accurate, the craft will be considered the most lethal weapon the world has known.

The Nazis recover an extraterrestrial craft.

The Nazis locate the crash site, recover an alien craft, and transport it to Poland's Peenemünde weapon research facility.

Die Glocke is secretly transported to Antarctica.

1945: SS General Kammler devises a plan to stop Die Glocke and other experimental technologies from falling into enemy hands. A U-Boat secretly transports Die Glocke to a remote top-secret base in Antarctica to complete their work.

U.S. military initiates Operation Highjump

After piecing together mounting evidence, U.S. intelligence has reason to believe the Third Reich still exists and the Germans are engineering a superweapon at a secret base in Antarctica. So the U.S. created Operation Highjump and sent a task force of 4,700 marines, 13 ships, and 33 aircraft to locate the enemy base, capture Die Gocke and destroy the enemy.

The mission to assassinate.

Days before Operation Highjump reached Antarctica, German scientists completed Die Glocke. Kammler's mission is set in motion. He will use Die Glocke to travel back in time as an assassin, kill his targets and alter the world's future. U.S. recon planes locate the German base and land their troops.


The Nazis will sacrifice everything to advance their mission, to own time.

Hitler's Thousand-Year Reich began crumbling. Between 1942 and 1944, the war shifted against Germany. Finally, in the final year of World War II, Germany realized defeat was imminent.

In his desperation to turn the tide of the war back in his favor, Hitler began investing Germany's remaining resources into a top-secret military advanced weapons program called "Wunderwaffe," German for "Wonder Weapon." Hitler ordered his top scientists to accelerate their progress to crack the alien technology codes and create advanced propulsion and other systems to weaponize and use to their advantage in their fight against the Allies.
