Nazi Germany was founded in 1933. Adolf Hitler, the chancellor would go on to start huge invasions and eventually conquer all of Europe. Nazi Germany with its puppet states, and allies would enter a cold war with the U.S. and its allies. This would eventually lead to World War 2, ending in the unconditional surrender of US in 14th of December. 1998.

Pre Nazi Germany[]

Before the Nazis came to power in Germany, the nation was an economic disaster. After its defeat in World War One Germany was stripped of his overseas colonies and much of its land in Europe. When the Great Depression struck the United States it would spread to Europe and the rest of the World. Germany would be hit even harder. By 1933 though Adolf Hitler had become chancellor, on his campaign that he would build a better Germany.

The Rise of Nazi Germany[]

Hitler would spend the 1930's improving the nation's economy and military, which violated the Treaty of Versailles. By 1938 Germany had moved into the Rhineland and had annexed Austria and the Sudetenland which also violated the Treaty. War would start in 1939 when Germany, allied with the Soviet Union after signing a pact, invaded Poland.This would cause France and Britain to mobilize its armies. When Poland fell, Germany moved its forces northwest. In early 1940, Germany invaded Denmark and Norway. Denmark was captured in a single day, while the battle for Norway, particularly the port of Narvik, lasted for several weeks. Germany then turned its attention towards France.

The French and the British thought the Germans would never get past the indestructible Maginot Line. But in May 1940, the same day that Winston Churchill became Prime Minister of Britain, Germany attacked Belgium and Holland. The German Luftwaffe (air force) devastated the Dutch city of Rotterdam, while the ground forces captured the Dutch capital of Amsterdam. Meanwhile, a secret army of panzers and infantry, were slipping through the forest of the Ardennes, north of the Maginot Line. When they emerged from the forest, the panzers quickly captured the town of Sedan. A few days later, the Germans reached the English Channel and the British troops in France were trapped. Only around half of them could get safely back to Britain from the port of Dunkirk. The rest were all taken prisoner. The British had also left all of their heavy equipment behind (Tanks, Field Guns, Trucks).

Hitler now planned to invade Britain. But he still had to wipe out the RAF. So he sent the Luftwaffe to bomb all the airfields in Britain. It seemed to be working. But the Luftwaffe was losing a lot of planes, due to radar. So Hitler switched to bombing cities. This was the Blitz and it would last until May 1941, when Hitler attacked Yugoslavia and Greece. He already had a lot of support in the area. Yugoslavia's neighbour Albania, was controlled by the Italians, who were Hitler's allies. Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria, were also Hitler's allies. So Germany attacked Yugoslavia and overran the country in a few days. Greece however, was being supported by the British and would take a bit longer, up to 4 weeks. The Germans then parachuted onto the Greek-British island of Crete and took it over.

The German High command then received a visitor. It was Benito Mussolini, the Italian dictator. His troops were having problems overrunning the British in North Africa. So Germany sent a large army over to Libya, led by the brilliant general Erwin Rommel. Almost immediately, Germany's feared Afrika Corp started pushing the British back.

Hitler was preparing to invade the Soviet Union when he was visited by Ernst Heinkel, owner of the Heinkel aircraft industry, famous for building the Heinkel 111 bomber, used during the Battle of Britain. His company had just built and flown a new kind of plane. It was a decade ahead of its time. A jet, known as the Heinkel 280. Hitler was pleased. He ordered full scale production of a more advanced jet fighter, called the Heinkel 162 'Volksjager' (People's Fighter). Hitler decided not to invade Russia until there were at least 500 Volksjager's ready to fly. He postponed the invasion until March 1942.

Hitler decided to try and invade Britain again. But now he had heard that Britain was building a heavy bomber. This gave him a smaller time limit to invade. Then he heard that the Luftwaffe was at twice the strength it had been at the beginning of the First Battle of Britain. So his forces attacked all the airfields around London and destroyed them all! His army landed on the South Coast and immediately took Eastborne, Brighton, Dover and Newhaven. The panzers advanced towards London and took the town of Crawley. When they reached the suburbs, they captured Winston Churchill, who was taken to Berlin and tortured by the Gestapo. German paratroops freed British Fascist Oswald Mosley from prison and the Luftwaffe devastated Northern Ireland. Finally, in late September 1941, the British surrendered. All the British forces in North Africa surrendered, which meant the Germans had access to the Middle East and the rest of Africa. Then Hitler found out that a few Middle East areas were rich in uranium. Perfect for Nazi Germany's top secret Zerstorer Project (Destroyer Project) to build an Atom Bomb.

In December 1941 Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, bringing the USA into the war. Germany also declared war on the USA. But the USA could not attack Hitler because there were now no allies in Europe, until Germany finally attacked the Soviet Union in the spring of 1942. It was an easy campaign. By now the Volksjager was fully operational and within days, the Red Air Force was obliterated. The German army quickly captured the Baltic States, and the Belorussian regional capital of Minsk.

War between Japan and the U.S. began in the Pacific and would be a long bloody war. The U.S. would win and occupy Japan and help rebuild. In Europe war between Germany against allied Spain and Italy caused a German victory. Later Germany would go to conquer Portugal, Sweden and Switzerland.

With his conquest of Europe Hitler was quick to establish puppet states around the globe, in northern Africa, the middle east, and central Asia. Later after aiding the Chinese government against the communist revolutionists, China and Korea would sign alliances with Germany. Later this would grow into the Holy Roman Alliance, to combat the formation of The American Treaty Organization.

Structure of the Empire[]

Hitler divided the empire into different districts including:

German Proper[]

This are included much of the land lost in World War 1. Also it would include Denmark, Switzerland and Czechoslovakia. This was the Center of the empire. It was was some say the center of the world as well. Berlin was the capital of this district and of the whole empire.

Western Germany[]

Western Germany included France, Spain, the Netherlands

The Cold War with the U.S. Post-Adolf Hitler Germany[]

German and America had butted heads many times, over the Middle East, and over South Asia. But the first real conflict in the Cold War would be the Suez Wars. A dispute between Egypt and Saudi Arabia over the Suez Canal. This would grow to a fuel scale bloody war. A treaty would soon be created that would declare Sinai its own nation. This would cause conflict because both Germany and America wanted the Sinai nation to join them as an ally. This would later lead to another war were another treaty was brought up that declared no foreign entity was allowed to intervene in Sinai, unless Sinai asked.

After this Germany would experience turbulence in its ascension of a new leader. Civil war almost broke out between Hitler's sons and Karl Dönitz the Leader of the Nazi Army. This would lead to the September Revolt in were two of Hitler's sons died, the last Gregory survived and managed to turn the public away from Dönitz, and Dönitz resigned leading Gregory to be Führer.

Proxy wars between the two superpowers would breakout across the globe. The most important was the Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Mongolian. These three had significant effects for the future. Surprisingly Greece would experience a revolution and would actually be liberated. The Nazi army though was quick to retake the new born nation. This would lead to Gregory starting a civil war in Mexico. The Fascist revolutions were aided by German supplies. But in 1979 a German ship transporting supplies to the revolutionist would be sunk by a Mexican destroyer. This would lead to Germany's declaration of war on Mexico and World War 2.
