~ Bill Whitcroft to John Smith


Generaloberst Bill Whitcroft is a high ranking member of the Wehrmacht in Nazi America, serving as second in command to Reichsmarschall and later Reichsführer John Smith.

He previously served with Smith in the US Army Signal Corps in World War II and is an old friend. He is presumed to be the de facto leader of Nazi America after John Smith dies.

Biography

Background

Whitcroft served alongside John Smith and Daniel Levine during World War II.

After the detonation of the Heisenberg Device in Washington DC in 1946, the three soldiers, alongside Helen and young Thomas Smith, were hold up in Fort Mouth in New Jersey. They were met in the evening by Colonel Mike Holden, who informed them that the United States had officially surrendered to the Greater Nazi Reich, with General George S. Patton having ceded power to Hermann Göring at the West Point Military Academy in New York.

Providing them with food and beverages, Holden informs them that the first men to sign on to the join the new regime would get food and good positions in the Reich. Whitcroft examines a Nazi armband he has been provided, remarking that it is "just a piece of cloth" and that they could potentially "bide their time" with the occupation and eventually strike back. He and John Smith eventually agree collaborate with the Nazis. However, their friend and colleague Daniel Levine is forced to go on the run due to his Jewish heritage.

Season Four

Whitcroft is put in charge of the Nazi invasion of the Neutral Zone. After a victory against the American Resistance in Denver, Whitcroft meets Reichsmarschall Smith and informed him about the campaign.

After discovering Hoover has gathered evidence to accuse John of disloyalty to the Reich, Whitcroft suggests Smith to assume leadership of America and use the nuclear weapons on American soil as a deterrent to gain independence from Berlin's rule.

After the death of Himmler and Smith's rise to Reichsführer of the independent American Reich, Whitcroft is later tasked with overseeing the Nazi invasion of the former Japanese Pacific States. However, he decides to call off the bombing of San Francisco after being informed of John Smith's death. He then removes his iron cross medal, suggesting that he may use his new position to restore the United States and be the new president.
