Synopsis for "War in Heaven"

March 1945, over Augsburg, Germany, Hans Von Hammer and his squad of fighters—now equipped with the new jet-powered Me 262—shoot down several American bombers. Despite of their victory, the conditions in their camp is deteriorating. They have few remaining jets and planes that are operable, aircraft replacement parts and ammunition are becoming scarce, and the pilots are resorting to eating cat meat, as the war is not going in favor of Germany. Von Hammer express his undoubted analysis that he and his men won't last long against the Allies.

The next day a Spitfire squadron strafes the camp, destroying several of their planes. By April, Von Hammer and his squadron goes against the Americans. During the battle, a Me 262 accidentally collides into Von Hammer's jet and forcing the latter to parachute over the Dachau Concentration Camp, where he witness the atrocities committed by the Nazis.

Von Hammer soon returns to the camp and calls the pilots together and tells them about the Death Camps being run by Adolf Hitler. He tells the men he will fight for the Third Reich no longer and intends to fly to the nearest Allied airbase where he will surrender and offer aid in any way possible. He calls upon the men to follow his example. Von Hammer's declaration infuriates Hauptmann Engels, who then draws his pistol on Von Hammer. But Engels is "accidentally" gunned down by Peter.

Von Hammer later takes his squadron on one last battle, where his entire fighters including Peter are wiped out. After downing several bombers, Von Hammer stops his attack upon seeing a damaged bomber before finally deciding that he has enough. By the time he return to the camp, the jets are now inoperable to continue on fighting.

Von Hammer takes his men to rendezvous with Sgt. Rock and Easy Company and surrenders himself and his men to them. But not before destroying the Me 262s as his final act of defiance.
