Company of Heroes Wiki

Luca Gruenewald was a German nuclear scientist working for the Nazis. At a facility in Haigerloch, he successfully developed a functional nuclear bomb.


Gruenewald had a daughter, whose anti-Nazi sentiment led her to join the German Resistance and get into contact with Allied intelligence agencies.

Either willingly or under duress, Gruenewald conducted nuclear research for the Nazis during World War II. Realizing that he would be disposed of following the project's success, and likely wanting to ensure the safety of his daughter, Gruenewald made up his mind to defect to the Allied side of the war.
