Synopsis:
General Henchel faces the prospect of suicide because of his blunder along the German-Russian Front, but instead he makes a hasty departure by submarine to America. Arriving in the swamps of Louisiana, he decides to hide out in a mysterious cathedral, supposedly haunted, and is killed when he plays an organ, but is brought back as a zombie (like other former inhabitants of the edifice), leading his Army of the Dead out to kill Americans. The Angel discovers a zombie Monk at the cathedral and learns from him how to deal with the dreadful Army.
