Hauptmann Hans Adler
Born in Austria, Hans joined the Wehrmacht after the Anschluss. His instructors realised he was an exceptional shot and sent him for special training. He served in the Afrika Korps, and retreated along with the rest of the Korps when the Axis got pushed out of North Africa. After a period of rest and recuperation he was sent to fight against the Allies in France, but got caught up in the Italian Campaign before he managed to get there.
