He was presumably a Luftwaffe pilot responsible for nuking New York City with Der Bestrafer" in 1948. He is hailed as a hero by the Nazis, after the Second American Revolution, it's possible he's now hailed as a monster by the Global Resistance.


  • His exploits inspired Nazi writer Ingo Kramer to write a novel about an alternative history in which the Allied forces won. Peter happpened to be shot down before he was able to drop the atomic bomb, thus giving the Allies time to win the war. And in response, Peter establishes a resistance group called the Last of the Aryans.
  • Trumbauer's name and the Trumbauer Journals are a reference to the infamous 1978 white supremacist novel The Turner Diaries by William Luther Pierce of the notorious neo-Nazi organization National Alliance.
