Doctor Johann Fennhoff supervising

Doctor Fennhoff spoke with The Soldier today. The programming from Fennhoff and Zola's last visit has held up well. Because of this good news, the schedule for electric shock and the Scopolamine dosage will be altered.

Soldier to receive electric shock once each morning:

75V
shock held for 5 seconds
administered at 10 minute intervals
repeated twice

Scopolamine administration:
.75 milligrams
intravenously with saline
repeated after each shock session

diethylstilbestrol 10 mg per day

The Soldier is very receptive to instructions and suggestion after these treatments. On this first day without Doctor Zola, The Soldier will practice the languages he knows, i.e. Russian, German, and Romanian. He will not be permitted to speak English. Doctor Fennhoff will instruct him that he does not understand English as he is a Russian soldier who knows no one who does speak English. Later, The Soldier will begin to learn Italian, French, and Chinese.

Doctor Fennhoff has very defined goals for The Soldier. He wants The Soldier trained in espionage.

goals:
learn several languages
learn more forms of hand-to-hand combat
learn code breaking and code making
learn gymnastics and various forms of dance
learn current international politics and geography

Soldier received electric shock

75V
shock held for 5 seconds
administered at 10 minute intervals
repeated twice

Scopolamine administration:
.75 milligrams
intravenously with saline
repeated after each shock session

Doctor Fennhoff is very impressed with The Soldier accelerated learning capability. With very little prompting, The Soldier was able to recall all of the previous languages he had learned to a near perfect fluency. In one day, he came close to mastering Italian. He did have a base knowledge of the language from the war.

Today The Soldier began training in boxing.

More studying of Italian will happen this evening rather than a continuation of combat.

The Soldier is speaking fluent Italian. Lessons in French begin today.

Doctor Fennhoff has given The Soldier some books to read that discuss modern international politics. Especially with regard to the USSR's status in Europe and diametric attitude with America.

The Soldier is also being indoctrinated to HYDRA's plan for the world. He is eager to do his part in making the world a place for all men to be free and equal.

May 25, 1955

Doctor Johann Fennhoff supervising

Doctor Fennfoff believes that he can hypnotically increase The Soldier's ability to learn and recall complex written matter. He is introducing a new routine that includes the administration of other drugs, including LSD and other chemicals, combined with hypnosis, and sensory deprivation.

The belief seems to be that manipulation of The Soldier's mental state and altered brain functions will produce a vulnerable state and allow the hypnosis to implant deeply into The Soldier's subconscious.

Lessons in code-breaking and code making were introduced today. Fennhoff expects that The Soldier will become an expert covert agent if he is trained well enough. Fennhoff is worried that Zola's goal is to test The Soldier to the limits of the serum's capabilities, which Fennhoff is convinced will damage him mentally beyond repair.

The Soldier's boxing training continues. The instructor from yesterday has several broken facial bones. A new instructor was brought in. As well as superior protective headgear.

The new arm is formidable.

May 28, 1955

Doctor Johann Fennhoff supervising

Fennhoff is administering electric shock and various drugs to The Soldier each day. While The Soldier is under the influence of the chemicals, Fennhoff hypnotizes him and plays pre-recorded tapes with repetitive messages. These messages are not heard by the staff, however, Fennhoff's comments indicate The Soldier is being instructed in the ideals of HYDRA and his specific role as the Fist of HYDRA and as an agent for HYDRA.

The Soldier has mastered code breaking and code making as Fennhoff predicted. He has also mastered boxing. He is fluent in Russian, German, Romanian, French, Italian, and Chinese.

Due to his lessons in languages, codes, and boxing; his education in international politics has not been addressed. Fennhoff plans to rectify that starting tomorrow.

Today, new training in hand-to-hand combat begins; as do dance lessons. Fennhoff believes that ballet will enhance the fluidity of The Soldier's movement. He is a machine in the combat ring, but he is not graceful. Doctor Fennhoff has brought in an instructor who will turn The Soldier's fighting ability into a precision tool.

Doctor Johann Fennhoff supervising

Doctor Fennhoff has continued to administer his hypnosis protocol. To the staff, this system seems to be working quite well. The Soldier is awake and aware each day. He revels in his combat and dance training. He takes pride in his lessons on international politics and is excited about the changes in maps since the war. He is actually personable. Fennhoff's belief that he can become a covert operative is no longer an implausible idea.

Doctor Fennhoff must return to America. The Soldier will be placed in cryostasis until such time as either doctor comes again to Siberia.
