‘The Fourth Reich'
At the end of World War 2 Germany and her people where devastated. Russian troops were killing any man they could find, and raping any women. The Americans and British had created a system of extremely humiliating and depressing military control. Germany was Hell on Earth. Whatever was left of the Nazi regime either went into hiding, fled from occupied Germany or went to Nuremberg to face trial. This was seen as the downfall of the Third Reich. The world celebrated at the destruction of the Third Reich and a calming lull fell over Europe. Even though the war was still being fought in the Pacific, everyone was relieved. However the few Nazi and SS officers that had made it out of Germany had successfully planted themselves in the surrounding countries.
Denmark, Poland, Latvia and Belarus were now infected with the senior leadership of the crushed Third Reich. Here these officers stayed while Germany was torn in two between the United States and the Soviet Union. They started new families, grew old, but harboured a hatred for the Allies of World War 2 and everything they stood for. Over the many years of waiting in exile these Nazi officers located each other and started to form a network between them. This network spread and gained strength and more members throughout the Cold War. Towards the end of the Cold War the Nazi Network had expanded throughout nearly all of Europe and now included weapons experts, scientists and physicists all harbouring a hate for the domineering powers.
After the Cuban Missile crisis in 1962, the Cold War escalated beyond anything any war had ever caused. A hostile miscommunication between the Kremlin and the White House caused Russia to send its entire armed forces across the Gulf of Alaska and conducted a hostile takeover of the United States. Before the United States could fully come to arms, the Russian military had already conquered over half of Alaska. At the same time this was happening, the Russians positioned in East Germany had knocked down the Berlin wall and conquered West Germany.
This was a devastating blow for the United States, as they had never faced an invasion on this kind of scale before. The US was outgunned, outmanned and unprepared. So with some hesitation they called every country possible that could send them assistance. Britain, Australia, France, Ireland and Scotland were just some of the countries that sent supplies and military might to aid the United States. Canadian and United States forces tried to hold back the Red Tide from reaching the border between Alaska and Canada, but it was an impossible task.
When one Soviet soldier died, two would replace him. When one tank was annihilated, a stronger tank replaced it. It seemed like the beginning of the end. The underground Nazi network now dubbed ‘Das vierte Reich' saw this as an opportunity to spread their influence. Germany was now fully controlled by the Russians and ‘Das vierte Reich' wanted it back. The German people where constantly being neglected and abused by the governing Russian body. This is the point that would cause the country to rise. ‘Das vierte Reich' inspired the people of Germany to rise up against their Russian oppressors and push them out of their country. It took two whole years for the German people to eliminate the Russian presence. Two years of gruelling guerrilla warfare took their toll on the people of Germany and the Russian military; until the last Russian soldiers fled Germany in the late months of 1964, creating a free Germany. As soon as Russian Germany fell, the ‘vierte Reich' or Fourth Reich immediately put themselves at the top of the political food chain. They claimed that the Nazi party will rise to power once again, and protect the German people from the current world wide uncertainty. With Russia now pushing into the last half of unconquered Canada and some of Europe, the German people were desperate for leadership and safety. Hundreds of thousands of people flocked to the cause to protect what they called home. By the end of 1965, due to extensive resource collection and endless factory production lines, Germany was back to the same level of power and influence that it held during the peak of World War 2. Towards the end of 1966, Russia again started to push at Germany's defences. But this time they were prepared. The Germans managed to hold back Russia for half a year, until 1967. At this point the Russians realised that the newly empowered Nazi party could be an invaluable ally to their war effort. So the Soviet Union offered the German's a truce. If the Nazi's became the Soviets ally they would no longer have the threat of invasion on their eastern border. So Germany accepted the USSR's offer.
With Germany now an ally, Russia started to move around it and invade even more of mainland Europe. Here is where the Fourth Reich saw their opportunity to claim more power than they currently had. They offered the smaller countries protection; if they allowed Nazi war structures to be constructed in their country and gave Germany troops they would use to protect the country from invading Russian forces. At first the smaller countries such as Switzerland and Belgium quickly signed up for this protection program then as Russia started to take more and more of Europe more countries begged the Nazi's for their protective services. Soon France and Spain had signed up for the ‘Protection Program' and were quickly flooded with Nazi structures, troops and propaganda.
By 1970, the war on the American front had come to a grinding halt, with both sides holding a solid defensive line right on the border of Washington and declining down into other states. Because of the stalemate that was the American front, the Russians concentrated on pushing their influence through Europe. But in political talks during 1971, Germany had reclaimed a few countries that had high populations of Germans. These countries, unknown to the Soviet Union, where the primary sites of the ‘Das vierte Reich' network. These countries were Estonia, Latvia and Belarus, leaving Russia with little left of Europe to conquer. Because Nazi Germany either had direct control or was protecting majority of Europe, the Soviet Union handed over the control of the continent to Germany. This was the opportunity the Nazi party had been waiting for; with unlimited amounts of resources at their disposal they slowly began their takeover of Europe. By the end of 1973 Germany controlled every country in Europe except for the United Kingdom, Scotland and Ireland; Russia had combined with China to form a giant communist state, which then moved to take all of Asia. By the end of 1975, only Africa and South America where not under Nazi, Soviet or what was now known as, the ‘United Nations' influence. With these two continents now seeing how open they were to attack they decided to align themselves to different factions. While the rest of the world was in a border lockdown, two entire continents had a civil war between groups that had decided to join different factions. United Nation's brothers fought Soviet fathers. Nazi sons fought United Nations sisters. At the end of 1976 both nations had fell to the influence of the Nazi party. Every country in the world was in a complete and utter lockdown. No shots were fired for four years, everyone was on edge, and the war had turned into a game of spies and satellites. Then in 1980 the biggest political talks ever held commenced, and ended with the forming of the ‘Universitas Pacis Treaty' which stopped the conflict between each faction state.
But the walls did not go down, the secret cat and mouse that was the spy game continued and not much changed. Nothing happened for another thirty four years, men manning the front grew old and retired; and were replaced by newer soldiers with a shine in their eyes and valour in their hearts. This exact same pattern happened over the time that the ‘Universitas Pacis Treaty' was in effect. But during this time of young soldiers and spies ‘Das Vierte Reich' wanted and craved more. They began to boost their research development, working night and day to try and get ahead of their opposing factions. They soon began to develop advanced weaponry and vehicles, developed ingenious military tactics and doctrines to crush their opponents. By early 2000 the Soviet Union had started to suffer; they did not have the manpower or resources to support a totalitarian military state and had begun to decline. ‘Das Vierte Reich' saw this as a valuable opportunity to gain the power that they wanted. They entered talks with the Soviet Union about trading some of Soviet land for the materials they needed to keep their restrictive state running. These talks soon became hostile as the fascist party demanded more and more land for their resources. The Nazi faction started to move troops to the border of Europe and Asia and threatened to attack with force if the Soviet Union did not comply. But the USSR did not take this lying down and prepared their own armed forces for a long conflict, the lines were drawn and the battle lines decide. War was inevitably going to begin again.
In early 2014 Nazi soldiers broke down the walls between the borders and started to push into Russian owned Asia. At first the Nazi's found it hard to move forward, but their forward planning and advanced weaponry allowed them to quickly gain momentum. The USSR realised that they had a disadvantage against the well equipped and organised Fourth Reich and made a desperate plea to their once greatest enemies. The United States of America. The U.S.A was hesitant at first and only supplied more advanced weaponry so that the Soviet's could improve their chances. As soon as America and the United Nations pledged support to the USSR the Nazi faction realised that they needed to put some pressure on the United Nations. So without warning, attacks where launched from both Africa and South America on United Nations countries. With this advancement the Soviet Union where extended an invitation to join the United Nations; they accepted and where integrated into the United Nations armed forces. The year is now 2016; the war has been going for two straight years with no foreseeable ending in sight. With thousands of people dying every day and millions of others waiting for their opportunity to fight, The Fourth Reich of the German people had grown to unimaginable power and strength. The rest of the world is not going to go down without a fight.
