Graf von Schrader is a character featured in Medal of Honor: European Assault. He is a high-ranking officer in the Wehrmacht partially responsible for the development of a experimental bomb, codenamed Virus House, and serves as the primary antagonist of the story. Lieutenant William Holt, an American agent with the Office of Strategic Services, spends years hunting down information on von Schrader's programme as well as eliminating members of his unit.

Biography Edit

On 28 March 1942, during a raid on the German-occupied French port of Saint-Nazaire, Holt first learns of a project to develop an experimental bomb code-named Virus House. Holt then travels to North Africa and joins the British 7th Armoured Division on a raid in Tunisia the following May, and discovers more information while destroying a V-2 rocket facility. Next, Holt makes his way into the Soviet Union, joining with elements of the Red Army and Soviet partisans. During his assault on Mamayev Hill, the American agent uncovers more documents tracing the project to a facility in the Ardennes in Belgium. Holt joins with the American 28th Infantry Division and assists in claiming the village of Rocherath before freeing a captured French resistance leader.

In doing so, Holt is able to track down the location of the secret facility and participates in an attack on the bunker in January 1945. A desperate von Schrader activates his bomb in the hopes of wiping out the American attackers despite causing his own death. However, Holt is able to fight his way to the control room, killing von Schrader in the process, and drops the experimental explosive down into the facility where it safely detonates.

Quotes Edit

"William Holt. Yes, I know who you are. I have made you a study of mine. My men never really appreciated you. That was their downfall, I think. I, however, have found you a worthy adversary. But all games have their end, and this too has run its course. It is pointless to try to stop this. The device will detonate! It is too late for you. It is too late for all of us! Foolish American, this will be your tomb! Our victory, your epitaph! The Reich will triumph! You simply cannot stop destiny. William, you cannot win!!"
