>The Führer gave expression to his unshakable conviction that the Reich will be the master of all Europe. We shall yet have to engage in many fights, but these will undoubtedly lead to most wonderful victories. From there on the way to world domination is practically certain. Whoever dominates Europe will thereby assume the leadership of the world.These words were written by Goebbels to ring some truth as the Großgermanisches Reich or the Greater Germanic Realm now stands as a superpower after the Second World War. When Austria was annexed by Germany the Fischers were now automatically German citizens and the family was happy to renounce their old ties to a dead state but quickly learned that as much as they hated taking orders from Vianne, Berlin was even worse. This family was a branch which broke off of the Weiss family from Liechtenstein when a daughter of their's moved to live with her husband's family in Austria. The daughter was Hilda Weiss who happened to have a younger brother, Luis Weiss. He would go on to eventually have a daughter of his own, Monika Weiss. Although not much of a warrior, Monika Weiss was unemployed and had to worry about student debt. It would lead to her joining the Wehrmacht much like the other increasingly growing population of former students that couldn't find a job. Ever since the victory over the Soviet Union, there was an influx of Untermensch slaves from the east taking jobs within the Reich proper. The big companies cared little if anything for the plight of the Germanic workers as they saved money forcing people to work and die without pay. The easily replaceable and bearly feed Slavs fit perfectly into this new economy of an expendable workforce. The problem of paying for the healthcare of slaves was solved if these companies can simply kill them then receive more from the east. Massive infrastructure projects like expanding the Autobahn into Poland, building the Atlantropa Dam at Gibraltar and the Panropa Dam at the Dardanelles to lower the Mediterranean Sea. Not even mentioning rebuilding Berlin into Germania to not only be the capital of the Reich but as the fortress city that would be the center of the world took a massive amount of slave lives. The Germanic lower class and to a lesser extent middle class was being replaced with slaves which drove many to join either the SS or the Wehrmacht to avoid homelessness. Liechtenstein would go on to be annexed voluntarily allowing easier travel to Austria. With the war over Monika thought it to be the right time to join the Wehrmacht Signal Corps and start paying off her student loans, the sight of blood always did unnerve her. The SS wasn't an option for her knowing how uncomfortable she got around zealous Nazis and from what she heard they've only gotten more fanatical after the war.
>>3647318The very idea of this international Jewish conspiracy was hard to grasp for her knowing how hard it was to talk to her family just across the border. It seemed absurd that Russian peasant Jews were somehow able to coordinate with German banker Jews to successfully destroy the might of the German Empire. She might've not been smart, but she knew there could be another reason than the overtly complex idea of the Jews seeking the annihilation of the Aryan race and civilization itself. Even her family and friends called her old-fashion or conservative for not beliving in the modern racial sciences. Despite the German popularity of the Nazi party starting at around 30% before the war to 40% after the war, Monika still couldn't bring herself to join the party proper as many of her co-workers have. Being a party member brought with its perks like being prioritized for government services or faster promotions, even then she didn't felt right subscribing to an ideology without conviction.Fixing her uniform to prepare herself for the ceremony today, Monika Weiss was going to complete this then be stationed somewhere else for the duration of her service. "People see your exterior first before your interior, thus make sure to reflect that!" This quote is one of her favorite lines that instructor Luis von Baßmann told her. When she first met the burly blond northerner, he was somewhat intimidating until people realized that he was rather friendly through their training. That was why she spent her time carefully looking over and checking everything until it was perfect. There was also Emilia Kowalski with light brown hair and green eyes that would barge into Monika while she was changing. "Mein Gott! Knock next time, I just felt my soul leave my body for a second there," Monika said as she tucked in her shirt. "Ja, ja, I get it but we need to go now!""Why the rush we still have 15 more minutes,""As a proud Prussian," making Monika roll her eyes, "I have to arrive early then walk through the doors at exactly the right moment to make it look like I arrived on time,""No need to make it a big deal,""Well, I guess I'll being waiting for you at the courtyard then," storming off with no hope for Monika to catch up.>[Monika rushes to catch up.]>[Monika takes things at her own pace.]>[She ends up triple checking everything.]
>>3647320>[Monika takes things at her own pace.]
>>3647320>>[Monika rushes to catch up.]
>>3647320>>[Monika takes things at her own pace.]
>>3647320>[Monika takes things at her own pace.]The entire process of getting ready was all rather easy for her and would only take a few minutes before departing. Going back to double-check her entire outfit in the mirror, everything looked clean and proper when she was supposed to leave. There was still a few minutes before she could enter the courtyard with every other trainee making Monika smile with satisfaction that she finished her training. She would miss the friends she made along the way but the toughest part for her would be complete. The simple fact of learning how to use, repair, and build a radio was especially hard for somebody that never worked with electronics or even used them much at home. It didn't help that she studied economics than something more relatable like engineering. There was Kowalski marching to cut through everybody gathering around the door to walk into the area at exactly 9:00 sharp. To that was the contrasting Johanna Naumann who would go on to trip over her own feet by stepping on her left foot with her right foot when everybody was entering the courtyard. Monika would help up the clumsy girl as she fixed up her black hair and prudish glasses that covered the blue eyes."Danke, Weiss. Sorry for being so stupid,""If you were truly stupid, you wouldn't be here today. Come on get up, we have the oath to swear."After all the trainees lined up, there was von Baßmann with a copy of Mein Kampf while another soldier hoisted up the national flag of red, white, and black. The northerner held up his right hand to make his pointing and middle finger pointed to the sky as that arm made an L-shape. His other hand held the little black book with The Führer and the title in front of a bright red. "Hold your hand like me and repeat after me to swear this oath," There was a moment of silence as the trainees copied him as the marching band began playing their drums."I swear to God this sacred oath that to the leader of the German empire and people,Adolf Hitler, the supreme commander of the Armed forces, I shall render unconditional obedience and that as a brave soldier I shall at all times be prepared to give my life for this oath."Pausing in between the lines to allow the trainees to copy him. When the swearing finished, all the trainees threw their garrison caps into the air. But while everybody else was celebrating Monika was already planning ahead for how her time spent in service would be like.>[Germania, a nice cozy way to climb the ranks at the capital would be a nice idea.]>[RK Moskowien, closer to the frontier the better.]
>>3647804>[Germania, a nice cozy way to climb the ranks at the capital would be a nice idea.]
>>3647804>[RK Moskowien, closer to the frontier the better.]Away from all the intrigue
>>3647804>>[Germania, a nice cozy way to climb the ranks at the capital would be a nice idea.]
>>3647804>>[Germania, a nice cozy way to climb the ranks at the capital would be an excellent idea.]That would be her plan, to get away from the frankly still unstable eastern RKs to settle in the capital. The quicker she did this, the easier it would be to entrench herself in the Reich bureaucracy. The added benefits of living in a paradise on Earth was also a bonus for her. It seemed that the Reich required radio operators all over the place as the Wehrmacht was stretched thin fighting insurgents all over Europe. There was one paper to fill to confirm her transfer to Hauptkampfempfänger Gruppe 512. it is also known as the Central Combat Receiver 512th Group. Naumann also took that paper to fill it out as well and was writing while sitting next to Monika."Oh, I didn't know you wanted to go there too!""Of course I want to go there, who wouldn't?""Me!" Kowalski said loudly to startle both of them as she watched over them like a hawk, "You're a bunch of bootlickers, especially you Johanna. No, I- I'll earn my place to get into the higher ranks by serving near the front. Just like my father and his father before him."The comment stung Johanna Naumann for as shy as she was, many thought the only reason why she passed the exams was due to party connections she or her parents had. For even as a Nazi party member Johanna never openly expressed her support of the government in all the time Monika knew her. The most she would say is, "Sure" or "That's right," going along with everything else others praise about the party and the ideas of National Socialism. That didn't help her image as being seen as one of those kids who were pressured into joining the party by their parents. At the end of the day, with everything packed up already the day before, the operators would be departing into their assigned trains to either the east or the north. For as much of a Prussian-up-their-ass Emilia Kowalski was, she did genuinely cared for both of them making both Monika and Johanna smile while waving goodbye to her when Emilia's train arrived first. Eventually, their express line to Germania had arrived as well. Monika with always a plan ahead was contemplating how she would spend her time preparing to work within the so-called greatest city in the world. There was a near-mythical element to the capital but there must've been authentic practical people still living in said city.>[Learn the city layout.]>[Brush up on Reich politics with others.]

>>3650003>>[Learn the city layout.]There could be a genuine value to memorize how the city could be navigated before all the others would arrive in Germania with her. This would be the advantage she needs to maybe give the upper hand over to adjusting within the capital. The other operators can worry about bickering politics that comes with higher offices, but what Monika needed was information that she can use in her daily life. "I get it guys, but I made up my mind," Monika said while looking out of the window."Uh, who were you talking to?" Johanna asked as she looked through her backpack."Oh! Nobody, just thinking out loud," That line had worked for most of her life, and it seems that it still worked now when Johanna went back to her affairs before Monika interrupted, "Say, you don't happen to have a map of Germania, do you?""Well, actually," Johanna would push back her circular glasses then pulled out a map of the place, "Here it is! Want to borrow it?""Ja, Danke," Monika spent the entire night discussing with and reviewing over the map as Johanna looked on. She learned that they would be living and working south of the Spree river at least 14 bridges were crossing over the river within the city and so far as she can tell 4 of them can only be used by either party members or the military. There were small little shortcuts and streets that she doubted other non-locals wouldn't know about that she found out from directly staring at this map.Once disembarking, Monika was stunned by the sheer scale and grandiose of the minimalist architecture the capital had. The government buildings were often dull flat things with only some Greek columns and eagle decorations, but they were so large that one had to look up to try to understand the size of the structure. Even before the operators could organize themselves to leave the station, this officer of some note walks up to the group of bewildered folk to grab their attention."If I may have your attention, I am Oberleutnant von Eltz and I am here to announce that all newcomers to Germania are invited to a welcoming party supported by Reichsmarschall Göring at this location tomorrow night," He would then start handing out tiny cards that held the location, time, and directions to get to said party. Johanna thought that it wouldn't be a bad idea to get to know new people and make friends with those already in Germania. Although Monika can come up with a few reasons why attending such a celebration might not be a good idea, like how Göring had enemies within Germania and that associating herself with him could give the wrong impression. Much like all the higher-ups in Germania, they were eyeing each other up and see if the other could be a potential rival. Speer, Himmler, Göring, and Bormann were all sizing one another, it was an open secret that Monika had to consider.>[Plan to attend the party.]>[Don't attend the party.]
>[Plan to attend the party.]
>>3651049>[Plan to attend the party.]
>>3651049>>[Plan to attend the party.]
Rolled 3 (1d6)>>3651049>>[Plan to attend the party.]"I guess I'll be attending this party if it is something Göring expects," Monika said to Johanna while making their way down to their garrison. Once there, they would attend an orientation which shows them around the building and the task they would be given. Normally, they would be passing messages, order, and requests to other parts of the Reich or within Germania. Other jobs include copying and transcribing things heard over the radio then passing them along to the higher-ups. There would also be minor tasks like delivering packages within Germania or picking up coffee. In the end, both of them came to a clerk that would register them into the garrison ID system as M. Weiss and J. Naumann on their name tags. While he was completing the registration he asked why Monika's surname wasn't spelled with a "ß"."You see since I was born in Liechtenstein and the country stopped using that letter, my parents changed their surnames into Weiss from Weiß before I was born,""Ah, that makes sense. I hope you enjoy your service in Germania," Stamping the ID with the clearance to freely move around the city as a member of the Wehrmacht.The day after was the real day to work as the two shared a room and unpacked everything they had. Within their station, there was a flood of information and demands from all directions. There was only so much one person can do before their shift is over and another would take over. First was the angry Kriegsmarine captain who demanded to have his own personal ship be given priority in repairs but he was probably all bluff. It moved on to copying Wehrmacht messages to request a higher production quota in aircraft bombs to expand their terror bombing operations over to the Urals. Then Monika would need to send orders from the SS to requisition unused trains under Wehrmacht command over to the SS.>[She would go on to prioritize helping the captain.]>[Sending the quota messages was more important.]>[The requisition order made it through first.]
>>3651966>[She would go on to prioritize helping the captain.]Submarines are crucial to strangling wartime merchant shipping.
>[Sending the quota messages was more important.]Yeah, but this involves the Urals. Submarine blockades would t help much
I was split on the bombing and the sub, but since terror bombing is like battle of Britain bombing of population centers, its not as useful as bombing industry or factories.
>>3651966>[The requisition order made it through first.]let's get in good with the SSBut if no one else votes for it>>[She would go on to prioritize helping the captain.]
>>3652654I'm fine with backing bomber production followed by submarines.
>>3651966>>[The requisition order made it through first.]
>>3651966>>[Sending the quota messages was more important.]The trains during the war were often sent to either the eastern front or the camps holding the Jews. The SS was able to have the supposed Jewish threat be quarantined off to live in a society within a society, and it was thought to have them live there peacefully until after the war. Although how truthful that was is unknown since civilians can never see the camps except in government footage. Nowadays it's said the Jews were relocated to RK Madagaskar to live out their time in isolation. Due to the fact, the SS was in charge of anti-insurgent operations they would often be deployed in the same area for a long time. There was little to no need for them to ask for a large number of trains to be under their control.Monika got to work fulfilling the unreasonably large amount of copies to be made for various factories to receive within the Reich proper. The duty was rather dull if anything which lends itself to allow her to read the message even though she was expected not to. It reads with part of the introduction being, >"During Fall Blau, the effectiveness of the Luftwaffe was displayed in their operations to disrupt and destroy Soviet land forces would be expanded upon. With sorties targetting civilian centers en mass throughout Fall Blau, it would show the fragility of the Soviet will to fight this total war. As all offensive operations to move closer to the Urals have bogged down, OKH has agreed with the Luftwaffe to expand terror bombing operations greatly. The aims of these higher demands in bombings are twofold, first is to create the motivation for the local population to rise then overthrow the Western Russian warlords who wish to keep fighting to bring themselves to surrender unconditionally to the Reich. The second reason if the first can't become a reality is to destroy the Western Russian ability to have the economy be able to support a state of prolonging the total war, then eventually have the Wehrmacht mop up starving remnants of the Red Army. Under the knowledge of the West Russian civilian population would flee from the bombings, this will lead to the warlords having their workers flee east and away from their factories. That will, in turn, feed more workers for their eastern rivals and further destabilizing the situation for the western warlords."These words came as a shock for her as most Germans thought terror bombings were a code phrase to the Luftwaffe targetting military forces not explicitly civilian targets. It was believed that these things were false enemy propaganda. The work of copying then finding the right factories to send these orders took a good chunk of her shift. The shift ended with the captain asking for her name and politely thanking her before hinting that they could form a favorable working relationship. There was still the Luftwaffe order she never got to as Monika left it to Johanna that came in at the last minute to help her out.
>>3653863After coming back to home with Johanna, there was already a letter waiting for her from her father. It seemed that he previously predicted that sending a message to her training camp in Austria would've likely not been received by Monika as she could already be in Germania. The letter didn't have much but to inform her about what he knew from the Fischers. It appeared that her cousin, Johann Fischer, was KIA in RK Kaukasus. Even the Fischer family didn't know much about the reasons why he died other than that he was fighting insurgents and how true that is questionable. It didn't help the matter for the grieving family in that they weren't allowed to have an open-casket unless it showed only from the shoulder up. There were cases of soldiers simply dying from overdosing, but the Wehrmacht officially would say that they were killed in action. This might've been done to prevent the public from knowing a clerk could've given them too much coke chocolate.Cooling down with a snack, Monika changed back into her uniform as Johanna did the same. There was an expectation that if you were to attend a celebration hosted by the military with military members in attendance then unless you were a civilian, one was supposed to come with their uniform on. They both did the same as others from the station with many she didn't know also came. It had been that those on leave was also invited as well. There was wine, food, and a toast to health or prosperity of The Führer, the Reich, and Göring. As the night went on, there would be a drinking contest among the newer attendees. Some of the Luftwaffe pilots cheered on or joined in as a few SA brownshirts looked to talk away from the crowd. At the end of the night,>[Weiss was buried in a conversation about the frontier with the SA.]>[Monika lay knocked out from competing to the laughter of pilots.]
>>3653868>>[Monika lay knocked out from competing to the laughter of pilots.]
>>3653868>>[Weiss was buried in a conversation about the frontier with the SA.]as good as it might be to get in with the pilots, getting blackout drunk doesn't sound too smart
>>3653868>[Weiss was buried in a conversation about the frontier with the SA.]Maybe we can learn more about our cousin and his passing?
>>3653868>>[Weiss was buried in a conversation about the frontier with the SA.]"What do you think will happen in the frontier?" Monika asked the rather thuggish slightly bloated man in his brown uniform. That raised a burst of laughter from him before he could respond. He introduced himself as Albrecht Wulf while standing around with other SA and Wehrmacht officers."The same thing that naturally happens to all enemies of the Reich, the Judo-Bolshevik threat will be crushed much like France, England, or the Jews,""But the situation from what I heard is that the Wehrmacht can't move the front,""Ha! For now, this might be true, but the best the enemy can do is delay the inevitability. It is the natural order of the world to have the strong rule over the weak, and the Aryan race is strong while the Slavs are weak,""Well, I'm just worried about the frontier since a cousin of mine has passed while serving," This made Wehrmacht officers more somber and dimmed the mood of those nearby."Ja, that is understandable, but I assure you the frontier is perfectly stable,""I was wondering if you could help me find out why my cousin died,""There would be no promises from me, but I will do what I can,""Danke," Weiss then wrote her contact information and the name of Johann Fischer on a notepad she always carries around.The rest of the night would end with Johanna being pressured into drinking a copious amount of wine then being dragged off home by Monika. That had happened after a hoard of men tried to flirt with Johanna but was met with her, in turn, pulling back into her shell. As they were headed home, Johanna would again stumble to fall, but there was no injury to herself. However, the sudden movement of falling had caused her to start vomiting as the alcohol kicked in. The next day was more of the same until there was a vast influx of orders from the Wehrmacht in RK Moskowien. It had plenty of contradictory requests and orders not to mention a definite hint of panic from those in the frontier. Sorting through all this mess would again take a huge chunk of her shift. That was not mentioning the requisition from the SS to transfer heavy weapons that were meant to head to the French border to be diverted to anti-insurgent SS units in the east. These heavy weapons included machine guns, anti-tank weapons, and FlaK guns that the Wehrmacht border guards were supposed to receive. >[Work on the Wehrmacht orders first.]>[Deal with the SS request personally.]
>>3657957>[Work on the Wehrmacht orders first.]
>>3657957>>[Deal with the SS request personally.]
>>3657957>[Work on the Wehrmacht orders first.]Machineguns and some PAKguns make sense for support but why the need for FLaK?
>>3657957>>[Work on the Wehrmacht orders first.]
>>3657957Why would we need to worry about the French border being secured? Is Vichy France not a thing?What’s the general lay of the land aside from most of east Europe under German control?
>>3659464Occupied French lands have been returned to Vichy France after the war.
>>3659610That makes sense... but Vichy France is essentially a puppet state. I feel like there’s something going on over there and we have no idea what>>3657957>[Deal with the SS request personally.]Makes sense that we would want more material on the eastern front where our cousin fell
>>3657957>>[Work on the Wehrmacht orders first.]Handing over the SS requisition for Johanna to handle, Monika focused all her efforts to making sense of these orders. The first instance of these contradictory orders was to transfer detachments of the 286. Security Division to the is absorbed into the relatively close XXVII Korp under the command of Generalleutnant Paul Völckers. That conflicted with the supposed order from the 286. that they were verbally told to join up with the 256. Infantry Division from Generalleutnant Georg Pfeiffer. To make matters worse, OKH had lost all contact with Pfeiffer and aren't even sure if he is still alive. Not knowing what to do, Monika elected to pass both of these orders up the chain of command until somebody with more authority can make that decision. Then came the Wehrmacht commandeering mechanized transport vehicles that the SS was meant to have with raw recruits without notice which the SS formally complained. There were many requests from commanders on the frontier for tactical withdrawal of their troops from tens of kilometers at a time. Many urgent warnings from RK Moskowien piled up her desk as she tried to find the appropriate commanders to send these messages to. There was one thing clear in all these reports, those on the frontier were panicking. Often the paper would be written with "The frontier is destabilizing," and "Battle lines are collapsing," or "Requesting authorization to fall back." It appeared that many in battle had their flanks exposed to be in danger of encirclement or were already encircled. More ominous reports came in of entire divisions simply vanishing as commanders lost contact with them. When her shift ended, Monika was physically and mentally exhausted. This was where she had to drag herself away from the desk to let another operator take over as her shift closed.Johanna and Monika walked back home to their state-assigned tiny apartment. Thankfully, there was a bit of downtime before they would need to make it to the cafeteria to get dinner. After what happened last night Johanna was headed straight home to not be bothered by the flashing lights and moving cars of Germania. Monika had the thought that she could visit one of the local beer halls and get to adjust to the locals. If she was lucky she might be able to learn some state secrets from some loose lips of a drunk. That could be a bad idea if she drinks too much and ends up like Johanna so there was always the option to head for Aldi to buy some coke chocolate tin cans and Kaff bottles for what could be more draining days ahead.>[To an Aldi!]>[To a beer hall!]

>Lore DumpGermany, as we know of from WW2, has rebranded itself as the Greater Germanic Empire which installed RK Niederlande and Norwegen as colonies that have similar governance to home rule. Ethnic Dutch and Norwegian locals have been given the same rights as Germans being acknowledged as also pure Aryans. RK Flandern was established in Belgium as a colony after expelling all the Wallonians to Vichy France in the hopes that some time in the future they would be also be granted home rule. Poland, the Baltics, and Belorussia have all been put under RK Ostland where the Nazis ran a policy of shoot first, ask later to dealing with insurgents and are the main exporter of slaves back to the Reich. RK Ukraine tried to starve the local population to death to make room for a flood of German colonists that never came, now the colony is dialing back the extermination in the hopes of meeting food export quotas and not become a desolate place if German farmers can't replace the locals. RK Kaukasus is now locked in a policy of hellish punishment to break the locals and isolate itself from the rest of the colonies as its governor grows more brutal and unhinged. This southernmost European colony is also mainly export oil and rare earth minerals. Everything north and east of all these colonies is RK Moskowien, which is ruled from the former Soviet capital of Moscow. This colony has the job of pushing the frontier to the east until it reaches the Urals and dismantling the Soviet industry. The main export to the Reich from here is factories as they are taken apart to be reassembled back in Germany or destroyed completely to ensure the east can never rival Germany industrially.Vichy France was given most of the occupied lands back from the Reich after the war and still takes orders from Germania. Ireland still has the pro-German IRA running the military junta from 1941. When German troops first landed in Cornwall from southern Irish ports they expected to hold this tiny strip of land forever and after the war, they established Cornwall as a German colony which to launch an invasion from just in case. When the RAF couldn't fly enough sorties to counter the Luftwaffe, England was lost. The diversionary Fallschirmjäger divisions dropping over Dover was an enough of a distraction to lure the English to be bogged down in the fighting to allow Cornwall to be lost. England now takes orders from Germania but insurgents against this new order are building up for a clash in Londen. Wales once given "independence" by Germania is loosely ruled but anti-insurgent operations intensify under German advisors against the wishes of the pro-unionist Welsh. The British Army was never destroyed when England was lost but merely ran north to Scotland, with Operation Barbarossa starting, Hitler came to a peace treaty to end the war with the UK only if it relinquished all national authority outside of Scotland, thus the UK became Scotland.
God damn it, there's like russian zombies out there now
>>3660220What about Africa, balkans and the middle east?
>>3660030>>[To a beer hall!]When arriving at the beer hall, Monika was hit in the face with the smell of smoke and was packed in with many others who also left their shifts. There were plenty of people who would be targets to pry leaks from as indicated by their uniforms. Everybody from staff officers to cooks was spending their time drunk and dancing in this building. There was a corner for smokers to go to as an exhaust fan tried its best to divert the poison out of the room. Monika got to an empty seat by what would be the standard bar stools. One Wehrmacht officer was loudly singing with his friend next to him while leaning as he must've been deeply inebriated. This should be an easy way to gather information as he was unable to control his own mouth or arms. The seat was the only thing which prevented him from fall over flat on the floor."So, you're in the Heer?""Ja, what's it to you- I mean, hey pretty ting," That might've been much more charming if not for the fact he stank and would be wobbling if he stood."I was wondering what news you have from the frontier since my cousin is deployed there and all,""Ah," Hiccupping in between his realization, "Seeing as dish is my lash day here, I'm not going to lie I might be shipped out to a death trap later,""Otto you can't say that," His friend interrupted him."Who cares we'll be sent to the death factory sooner or later. Listen, girl, from the rumors I've heard the situation is dire and high command is confused as to what to do,"His friend again interjected, "Ja, everybody thought the Red Army was shattered when they pulled out of Moscow and Bukharingrad. But now they came back with a vengeance in the form of the Western Russian Revolutionary Front,""Just like the good old days,""Don't fucking say that, you know how many field officers we lost making our way to Moscow,""At least I wouldn't starve to death like the Russians,""Danke," Monika needed to hear all that she needed to hear as she hurried to write a letter to inform her parents. Although, at the corner of her eye she spotted a man in a trench cost and hat leaving his seat in unison with her. She came up with a plan to walk through an alley shortcut to see if she was being tailed. She didn't know if the man was SS or Gestapo keeping track due to her asking too much information. It might even just be a common mugger but that was doubtful considering the harsh punishment and the fear that comes with being a criminal within Germania. Sure enough, the man also followed her into the empty alleyway thus in an attempt to escape she made ready to run. It seems that the man noticed this too."Halt! If you run I'll shoot out your legs and if you turn around your brain is going to stop working," This man's voice was gruff maybe even old. In fear, Monika slowly raised her hands with the purse sliding to her shoulder."What do you want from me!? I don't get paid much from the Wehrmacht," The words escaping in a quaking voice.
>>3661490Flashes of hand to hand combat training and disarming opponents came into her mind. These memories were surfacing in the hopes of self-preservation."I want you to answer this question honestly,""Is this a sick joke? Why can't you ask me this normally?""Due to the nature of this question if you are found untrustworthy I can't have you know who I am,""Fine, go-ahead ask!""I already know the truth in your heart, but I must see if you are trustworthy enough to not lie to me,""Get on with it,""Do you dislike the Nazi party?" The words stung at her heart with worries as to how somebody knows her answer. It felt almost like a heart attack when she was finished understanding what he said. There was only her family that knew the truth. Was this a test or set up? If so, was it an anti-Nazi or party supporters running the show.>[She admitted to disliking the party.]>[Monika lied to try to save herself.]

>>3661378>Lore DumpWith the Spanish troops storming Gibraltar, Italian and German air landings to cut off any hope of evacuation, the Rock fell under Spanish control within only a short month. Much of the Royal Fleet being transferred to the Home Isles would be trapped in the Mediterranean for the duration of the war. The early deployment of the Afrika Korp and the Italian use of Rapid Decision Doctrine allowed the Italians to take Egypt. Once the Suez Canel was lost, the Royal Navy ships stuck between Europe and Africa were sunk by the Luftwaffe and Italian submarines. Yemen and Iraq seeing the failure of the British were prompted to join the Axis. Turkey too would join the Axis after the war. The Iberian Union would be formed after the war as the Germans constructed the incomplete Atlantrope Dam caused ecological damage to all southern European nations. This, along with fear of the rising superpower, caused Portugal and Spain to secretly agree to become a single state with either government having veto power in foreign affairs. Italy fearing the Reich, would create the anti-German alliance to counter the German Unity-Packt. Turkey, Iberia, and other minor powers would join this Triumvirate in fear of the Reich. Italy would establish a Governorate of Egypt as a colony while Palestine would be made to be a Jewish haven after the war. Palestine and Syria would be under the colonial Governorate of the Levant where experts from former British colonies would be brought in to help the Italian make concentration camps to quell the ethnic tensions. When the Italo-German relationship soured further with the Panropa Dam being built after the Turks were pressured, the Italian government began actively supporting so-called "undesirables" fleeing the Reich to be resettled in the Levant. It worked to undermine the idea of Aryan supremacy in Europe when it was unable to fight a 4 front war to stop the Italians if things boiled over. Venice would be an abandoned city if not for the Italian effort to build a canal connecting it to the lowered sea levels. Turkey still claiming Cyperus was unwilling to leave the coalition once it joined in fear of the Reich after being pressured to all the Germans to build the Panrope Dam. Although given honorary Aryanship, Croatia was still an Italian puppet from the war whose economy was destroyed by the German attempt to drain the Roman Lake. Worse was the fact ethnic tensions exploded in the wake of devastating the Croatian fishing industry. Greece never recovered from the war as insurgents still plague the hills and the lowering sea levels led to rampant unemployment to matters worst the nation is ruled by a corrupt cabal of Italian puppets. Iraq became a nominally independent kingdom with Italian advisors, it would mainly export oil to Italy after the war. Yemen thought joining the Triumvirate would allow them an opportunity to unify Arabia but the Italians were stretched thin as they were governing all these new colonies.

>Italy winningDefinitely alternate history Also,>Monika admitted she didn’t like the Reich
>>3661499>[She admitted to disliking the party.]That caused the man to smile, and Monika squeezed her mouth tightly shut as footsteps draw closer to her untimely demise. When he was right behind her, she could practically feel the breath that left his nostrils."Turn around, and we should talk to each other face to face," When her eyes fell on his weathered old face with a scar on his lip, there was assurance in his eyes that she would be okay after all. "Who are you?" Monika asked, but the man didn't answer, "I don't matter, yet you do. The less you know, the better. Here," He handed her a sealed envelope, "What's this?" taking the thing and flipping it which way around to inspect every centimeter of it."Even I don't know. All that matters is that we did our research correctly and that you aren't a rat or that you aren't loyal to the party,""Really, who is this 'we' you mentioned,""Again, best not to talk about these things in public. Just read this letter when you're at home by yourself, it'll explain everything,"He gives her a firm handshake then as fast as he found you, he disappeared into the crowded streets. With a fast pace, she hurried back home to close the door then, double-check if it was locked, then sees if Johanna was still asleep. Opening to read the letter in dread, it was typed out in the same style as the ones she used.>This is a message asking those loyal to the Fatherland to do their duty. There are radical forces at work within the Reich which seek to destabilize then seize the apparatus of the state with any forces they seem fit. These opportunists can primarily be found in the SS and answer to one of the top authorities within the government. I ask you in this time not to be paralyzed or panic at the danger, but to confront and fight it despite your fears. I beg of you to do within and without your authority or powers to hinder the SS in any way you can imagine. There will come a time in the following months where all of your work would be necessary. A single day where you can look back in pride for saving Germany. - SWho could this be from? It could be one of the anti-Nazi underground cells. Was it a faction within the Wehrmacht? If anything there was a good chance one of the big four players within Germania were using her. It might explain that the S stands for Albert Speer but it was doubtful somebody so high up would directly message her. There was a chance the entire thing was an elaborate ploy to see her loyalty by the SS or Gestapo. >[Hinder the SS.]>[Don't follow through.]
>>3662453>>[Hinder the SS.]I think it fits our character. The Wermacht and SS were much different, and it does make sense Himmler/Heydrich would try to take over
>[Hinder the SS.]Time for wolfenstein: the new Reich
>>3662453I noticed the S.A. are still a thing in this alternate universe. They seem a bit more bro-tier, I wonder if they are the one’s trying to stop the S.S. From taking over?>Hinder the S.S.
>>3662453>[Don't follow through.]Lets just say we will favor the loyal forces more, such as the Wehrmacht. But not outright screw over the SS....
>>3662453>>[Hinder the SS.]The next month flashes by almost without notice as Monika was drained of the constant workload dumped on her following the intensification of the war. It became to be known as the West Russian War among the newspaper and radio announcers. From what she could gather the initial stages of the conflict started with the total destruction of Army Group Center where the Western Russian troops simply ran out of reinforcements and supplies to keep advancing. Two more months passed as the stalemate grew and insurgents behind the frontlines began hitting the German supply lines. That fact alone made any offensive operations from the Germans impossible but the West Russians didn't care, stories of concentrated attacks involving human waves almost broke through the front. The winter was too harsh, snow too deep, and ice too hard for any of the West Russian offensives to work. Two more months passed before the ice turned to mud and the Reich launched their counter-offensive to regain all lost land.During all these months, Monika played dumb, acted lazily, or became forgetful when it came to anything that would help the SS. She would go so far as to make friends with some SA members like Wulf to inquire on the happenings of the SS and the higher-ups but the SA and SS weren't exactly friendly ever since many of the SA were purged by Himmler. The SA, although having a significant size, is only around to help the Hitler Youth train kids and conduct ceremonies like marches, rallies, and parades. The early days of the Stormtroopers ruling the streets of Germany was long over, the SA was a shadow of its former self even if it still had zealous members.The fateful day came, the day that she'd been warned about some time ago by S. Two very conflicting orders came in, the first order was to be transmitted to all of Germania which claimes members of the government have been killed and that martial laws must be declared, coming from the SS. The second was from a random Wehrmacht general which requested that the nearest Wehrmacht battalions be moved to surround and arrest all members of the 36. Waffen SS Panzer-Grenadier Brigade. There would be no way for her to send the SS order through to all of Germania seeing as this was the first steps for a coup. There was nothing to indicate that the 36. did anything wrong and high command didn't seem this was happening. The question became rather if she should officially sanction the general's request to do something illegal with the seal of approval from Germania or to just send this order out to the nearest battalions without OKH's knowledge and approval.>[She passed on the order officially.]>[Monika sent them without approval.]
>[Monika sent them without approval.]VIVA LA REVOLUTION
>Lore Dump When the UK relinquished authority outside of Scotland, it also automatically granted to it's many many oversea's colonies. The many different Sub-Serheran Anglo colonies simply either fell into chaos or became warlord states with ethnic conflict exploding due to the crude borders drawn forcing different cultures to live together. Without either the British or French being able to rule these places, these newly weak independent states were easy pickings for the Reich who would reestablish their own colonies. RK Zentralafrika was taken from the Belgian colony of the Congo along with nearby French colonies and has many plantations owned by foreign companies, even with the reintroduction of slavery, this colony is merciful enough to allow the Africans to buy their freedom. The incomplete Afrika Dam would be built by the Germans resulting in the creation of the Congo Sea and thousands of locals drowning but it would allow the Germans to attract many corporations with a sea trade route. There is also the bonus of Zentral German troops acting as mercenaries which can be hired to raid the rival corporate property. RK Südwestafrika would be formed from all the colonies southeast of the Congo short of South Africa itself. This colony mainly depend on imports from the Reich proper to keep itself afloat, however, there is a massive effort from the Reichskommissar to develop the colony into the airbase of the Reich within Africa. It is also the place where commercial passenger and cargo planes were adopted quickly. These airbases would also be located outside of either Italian or Iberian interception range. RK Ostafrika was created from the colonies east of the other two RKs and is the most militaristic society which enforces a pure German civil and military force. There is no buy-to-freedom or work-to-freedom programs like in the other two colonies, instead, all Africans are deemed either slaves or subjects based on racial science for each tribe and they can never leave the colony. RK Madagaskar only as an isolated paradise island to exile the surviving Jews that weren't killed in the concentration camps before the Italians could free them. Hitler fearing resistance from some Nazis and the shock of the public like in Kristallnacht, decided to keep the truth of the camps a secret as a way to exterminate the Jew over a generation or two. The hope is to have the Jews be enslaved to be worked to death or be mixed with the locals to the point their race is destroyed on Madagascar.Governorate of East Africa grew from the Italian victory in Egypt, going on to be relived then absorb the surrounding Anglo-French colonies. The local Italian governor in the 50s would now work to develop the colony to catch up with the modern work and not be a drain much like almost every other colony still existing. South Africa formally also became free from the UK but had to fend off colonial German border skirmishes while striking down the Boers' Apartheid law.
>>3663261>>[She passed on the order officially.]
>>3663261>[She passed on the order officially.]Maximum justice
>>3663261>>[She passed on the order officially.]Sending the order through to be stamped with the seal of approval from OKH should be done even though in the end she might be blamed for it. If the entire affair turns sour against the anti-SS elements within the Reich, they could very well track down and erase her for sending out this order. Doubly true because Monika did this while ignoring the demands of the SS at the time. Handing off the order to be sent out, it only took a few moments before her superior to briskly walk up to her. Greta Bauer was a strict woman who followed the rules to the letter. She was about ten years older than Monika and had wavy blond hair with green eyes."Weiss, what is this scheiße!" Bauer was almost whispering this when she gently placed the paper on Monika's desk. Johanna looked on in fear and confusion as she was kept out of the loop."I don't know what you mean, Bauer,""You know we can't pass on this order without the approval of OKH. That's not even taking into account that this is Wehrmacht troops arresting a SS brigade. Oberkommando would never allow something like this to happen,""This is the reason why I wanted this order sent," Monika then slid the SS order to declare a state of martial law in Germania to Bauer, "It is time to decide how to handle with the SS, and I know which side I'm on, do you?"Bauer carefully read and reread both papers to make sure what she was seeing was real, "When somebody asks you if you receive either of these messages, you deny them, got it?" Monika acknowledged it by nodding as Bauer slowly took the SS order from Monika's desk. While Monika was watching Bauer enter her office, she saw her threw a crumpled up paper into her trash bin. With her office having a window looking out, Monika could see Bauer making phone calls and radio messages to other parts of Germania probably.Another order came from the SS to request that provincial units around Germania be allowed to enter the city to enforce the martial law that was enacted. It seemed that the SS thought their orders would be met without resistance as these troops were already moving to the city as the request was sent. Just then, a telegraph message was sent over to Monika reading, "Let them in, trust me - B.">[Deny entry]>[Allow entry]
>>3665243>>[Allow entry]Trusting that her superior knows what she's doing, Monika sends out the order to allow the SS troops to enter Germania. Within the same hour as chatter about the SS moving into strategic locations to control access to the city, they were also headed to secure key government buildings as well. At the same time, Bauer was calling up whatever people she needed to ensure something was getting done at the same time as well. Monika couldn't be sure, but it seemed like Bauer was racing against time as well. She would look more relaxed when a message came in for Monika. It told that the Ersatzheer Germania, the reserve army charged with holding the capital in case of something like this, be moved to reinforce the SS troops without their knowledge. The gears in her head turned and the dots all connected. Monika realized that the Ersatzheer was moving to prevent the SS from reaching the government offices while intercepting them at crucial chokepoints. For as she was transmitting this order, SS troops from outside of the city were still shuffling. Those within the capital would have the upper hand to stop and arrest all the SS. For if they tried to follow through with their orders, the reservist would arrest them. The reserve army had no notification that there was supposed to be martial law, making the SS into viable trespassers.More conflicting orders came in just a few minutes later as well. The first was from the military district commander of Germania, Generaloberst Fromm, that claims the general of Ersatzheer Germania was a traitor. The accusation could be true, and there was no telling which parts of the government and military were loyal to Hitler or Himmler. There was even talk from party members that Nazism has become lax and decadent while agreeing with Himmler for the establishment of a Spartan racially pure Aryan society. The question on how to do that since much of the Reich's economy depended on slaves was left up in the air. Then the conflicting order was the other order to arrest Fromm due to his unwillingness to cooperate with the SS to secure Germania, this was coming from the general of the capital reserve army.>[Send arrest orders of Fromm]>[Send arrest orders of Germania's general]>[Send both arrest orders through]
>>3666892>[Send both arrest orders through]Not sure which option has who being arrest so arrest them both.
Would Arrest orders from Fromm arrest SS and the Heer? Or just the Heer general?Or is did I read it wrong and >[Send arrest orders of Fromm]Means we are arresting Fromm?
>>3666929I should've written them as >arrest orders for Fromm>arrest orders for Germania's generalRather than "of" which implies these orders came from them instead of meaning these orders are to arrest them.
>>3666929The arrest order from Fromm would only arrest the Heer's general, not including the SS.
>>3666892>>arrest orders for Germania's generallets cause some chaos
>>3666957Then arrest both of them? But that man only help the SS.
>>3666931Arrest Germania's General Heer guy? Idk.
>>3666892>arrest orders for Germania's general
>>3666892>>arrest orders for Germania's generalMonika sends through these order to have the Ersatzheer begin arresting their general as a possible collaborator of the SS. That caused a bit of confusion in the city as the Wehrmacht troops refused to capture their own superior while still holding off the SS from entering the capital. The SS then began demanding the general be released while SS officers barred from entering demanded the general be arrested. SS troops on the ground were angered that the Ersatzheer refused them entry while the higher-ups thought the general was helping them. Bauer finally came out of her office to announce to everybody, "I just got confirmation from OKW, they are transferring troops to put down the SS from Denmark and the Netherlands." There was a collective sigh of relief as everybody in the building knew they'd be safe if this coup were out down bloodlessly. These people had to consider not just the safety of their own lives. But those of friends or family within the SS.The question changed from if the SS coup would be stopped to if the coup would turn violent. She didn't want a civil war in the Reich while there was still fighting in the frontier. There were things within her power that she could do, which can at least prevent the SS outside of Germania to start shooting. It was a hope that if she could keep the SS from seizing key buildings, the Danish and Dutch Wehrmacht troops would arrive in time. But completely keeping them out of the city could lead to a firefight. Tensions were already bad between the Ersatztruppen and the SS, and it didn't help that the Ersatztruppen weren't prepared to fight. She could try to convince the Ersatzheer to let them into the outskirts. That could also mean the SS might try to infiltrate through the sewers or be more ready to launch a preemptive strike to capture the city.>[Try to convince Ersatzheer Germaniato let the SS in a bit.]>[Keep out the SS at all cost.]
>>3668856>[Keep out the SS at all cost.]
>>3668856>>[Keep out the SS at all cost.]makes the SS feel uncomfortable and lets the Wehrmacht prepare
>>3668856>[Try to convince Ersatzheer Germaniato let the SS in a bit.]Its risky, but I think it crucial we avoid civil war. Too many enemies surround the Fatherland who would attack if they found out blood was being shed.
>>3668957+1Also, I’m curious. What should be our ultimate goal in these quests? Bring down the Reich?
>>3669226Monika seems to be a loyal and ambitious German judging from what choices we’ve made and her background. It’s just the Nazi party and the S.S. themselves are groups we’d rather not support.
>>3669226That would mean the destruction of Germany and alot of Germans. We don't want to lose, we want some policies to change and aren't fully on board with the natsees.
>>3668856>>[Delay the SS from entering the outskirts of Germania.]There wasn't much she could officially do other than trying to convince the Ersatzheer to cooperate with her. Even that wasn't exactly legal considering she doesn't have the approval of Oberkommando der Wehrmacht to pull this off. It was thought that she could at least imply the Germanian troops to fend off the SS for a day. All she need to do was tell them OKW was sending reinforcements to arrest the SS within a day or two. Despite not being in martial law, Germania was in high alert what with reserve troops setting up checkpoints and inspecting people in the streets. Monika was going to need to find a way to make her way to tell the Ersatzheer this information. Luck would have it Bauer storm out off of her office to call out, "Weiss, could you come in my office?""Ja, ein moment," It was evident within the room that her superior exuberated tension."God in heaven, why did you send the arrest order for von Blumenthal?""I thought-"In a furious slam on the desk, the woman crushed a pen with her fist, "No, you didn't think!" then switching to a low voice gritting her teeth, "Did. You. Receive. A. Letter. From. S?" That made Monika only nod to answer."Von Blumenthal was one of us, you idiot!""Oh," That was all she could say in fear and embarrassment."Mein Gott, what do we do now?" Slouching while taking out a canteen of beer. That gave Monika the time to think of an opportunity."I could personally send the arrest orders for Fromm instead to him and invalidate the other order,""Why would you want to do that?""So I can tell him to delay the SS long enough until more troops can arrive,""Right... But you need a reason to see him since the SS are already tapping our lines. That's at least what I would do if I tried to stage a coup,""We still have the orders to arrest Fromm,""Ja, but that could cause more confusion within the Ersatzheer than already there,">[Insist on sending the orders personally.]>[Personally deliver fake orders to talk.]
>>3671957>[Insist on sending the orders personally.]forgot to post.
>>3671957I have no idea what the other option entails.Would we go around town showing orders to every officer or something?
>>3672105No, the fake orders would be used as a lie to allow Monika to move freely and to talk to von Blumenthal.
>>3672125so insisting on sending orders personally wasn't us sending orders to arrest the other dude?
>>3672184The first options are real orders to arrest Fromm.The second are just fake orders for von Blumenthal to carry out.
>>3672196Explain to me like I'm a retard.If the fake orders for Blumenthal is sent, hes not going to follow them but to arrest SS or Fromm?Where as the first order is more of a direct order to tell everyone to arrest Fromm including the SS?
>>3672236The fake orders are only there to allow Monika to talk to von Blumenthal as there is nothing for him to do with said orders since they are fake and the Wehrmacht would know that. She would use these fake papers to get to the general to convince the Ersatzheer to delay the SS.The real orders to arrest Fromm could be sent to von Blumenthal instead just for Monika to talk to the general, just to convince the Ersatzheer to delay the SS. But this can cause confusion since he would then be obligated to arrest Fromm while dealing with the SS.
>>3671957>[Personally deliver fake orders to talk.]I suppose this would be the most pragmatic action.I'll change to this one.
>>3671957>[Personally deliver fake orders to talk.]Little point in trying to arrest the fucker now I guess, now that the Wermarcht divisions are on their way. Better off trying to avoid all-out civil war
>>3671957>>[Personally deliver fake orders to talk.]
>>3671957>>[Personally deliver fake orders to talk.]"Can I get the stamp to mark a file classified and have it be for von Blumenthal?" Monika asked nervously while playing with her fingers."Fine, but know that if you land in a cell, I won't be bailing you out," Bauer went her way to arrange these things as they move as fast as possible to create a file. This file contained nothing but the front which reads "Classified" and "For commanders only." Right when Monika was about to run off from her work station with this thing that only had blank papers, Bauer said, "Weiss, good luck out there, you'll need it."Crossing a bridge and passing a checkpoint, Monika reached the southern part of Germania. She then had to find her way to the building south of Führer Plaza. There was a complication when she got a block within the HQ he was to be in. The checkpoint refused to let her pass unless they inspect her first, that would mean they would also look at her file."What do we have in this bag here," The guard said as he pulled apart her suitcase."Don't-" She almost didn't get to say this, but it was enough to stop the soldier."You idiot, don't you see the big red letters on the front of the file," Another soldier said after slapping the back of his comrade's helmet."Ja, ja, I get it, Baumann," The inspecting guard stopped to fix up the suitcase then let Weiss be on her way to von Blumenthal's HQ.Once she got actually to talking with von Blumenthal, he quickly asked to have the doors shut behind her."I heard Fromm is sending orders to me despite me being under arrest,""Ja, ignore that. The orders I have are blank sheets of paper,""So you have a better reason to be here?""Well, I came here to convince you to delay the SS from entering the outskirts of Germania,""You know what you're asking me to do. You are asking of me to give up ground that I might not be able to retake,""That's where the good news from OKW comes in. The radio operators just got word that Danish and Dutch troops are on the way,""Ah, I see. You want me to give the SS the promise of entry until more Wehrmacht troops can arrive. Well, I can't prevent shots from firing, but I can at least try,""Danke,""Oh, and next time, just ask if the person received a letter from S,""Ja, I remember that next time," Monika departed with the general while saluting him with holding out the right arm in an L-shape then saying, "Heil Hitler.""Heil Deutschland,"With that job taken cared of, the next thing she could do was to wait for the entire thing to play out. Bauer was headed to the bomb shelter near the offices and suggested Monika follow her. The idea was out of apparent safety for both of them, but Monika still wanted to linger by her work station just in case more orders came through. There were workers there already yet if fighting breaks out, she would be next in line to replace them.>[Go with Bauer.]>[Linger.]
>>3673596>>[Linger.]There may be still work left to be done. Glad this general guy was able to see our reasoning
