It has been 10 years since the Second World War ended with the failure of the Allied invasion in Normandy. A triumphant Hitler declared victory over Europe and the British Empire.

January 17, 1944

The British Free Corps (BFC) assassinated Winston Churchill and masterminded an explosion which almost completely annihilated the Royal Family.

May 4, 1944

Elements of Kampfgruppe Zweihundert under Generaloberst Maximillian Ochs Straub perform one of the deadliest feints in the history of infantry manoeuvres.

American and British forces move to reinforce the town of Bastogne against imminent capture, but are themselves cut off by Straub's hidden forces consisting of thirty-one divisions of infantry, artillery and
armour including the ruthless Panzergrenadier Nacht under a nameless general officer known only as "The Beast."

British intelligence officials are at a loss to explain the sudden appearance of fresh German troops at such a crucial moment in the European War. Historians later compare Hitler's deceptive tactics to the
portrayal of George Patton's fictitious First Army Group ostensibly set to invade France at Calais in a successful bid to draw away German reinforcements.

With that same General Patton's Third Army now cut off, Straub is able to race nearly unopposed to the Normandy coast. With air cover provided by the Luftwaffe's heavy bombers, he quite literally blows the pieces of the Allied beachhead back into the sea and re-captures France.

Thirteen thousand Allied soldiers are either killed or declared missing. The battle later comes to be known as the D-Day.

May 14, 1944

After the Allied invasion is defeated, U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is wounded in his own assassination attempt, leading to his resignation from office. Alarmists take to the floor of the United
States Senate calling for an immediate truce with the Axis. The American people react with horror and outrage. There are calls for a unanimous declaration of Congress. Truman is hurriedly sworn in and presides over a divided government.

President Truman's last official act is to order a general retreat. By the time the Allies are able to muster reinforcements, Sicily, Belgium, France and Greece are lost.

President Truman is assassinated eleven days after taking office. The U.S. is on the brink of civil war. Rumors of Japanese amphibious operations near the coast of British Columbia force Canada to abandon European Theatre operations.

The United States withdraw from the conflict, instead choosing to seek retribution for Pearl Harbour, that came in the summer of 1944, with victory over Japan.

In the East only the Russians fought on in a bitter guerrilla war.

Britain stands alone against the Third Reich.

April 6, 1945

Halifax inquired about an armistice, but by then the Germans had already set off. They seized their
opportunity. Italy and Spain sent ships, and over 600,000 men. Vichy-France contributed a volunteer infantry battalion, along with its navy. The Kriegsmarine Wolfpacks, causing terror at sea and a multi-national naval force to tie up the Royal Navy. The Luftwaffe, clinically depleting the Spitfire's of Fighter Command with awful relentlessness.

May 7, 1945

Britain surrenders to Germany.
