What if! A new story of Alternate History
|The Final Solution
Every citizen knows the history of the World War and how the Fatherland eventually defeated the imperialist powers, and how Hitler saved Germany from the corrupt bankers who were controlling the government and brought a new order in Germany with an un-parallel advance in science and technology, arts and culture within a very short period of time. During his reign, he freed the people from poverty, inflation, enforced morals amongst the people, and gave the women of Germany dignity and the men pride and a new hope.
Just to reiterate, I will briefly cover the major events before continuing on with my essay. I am writing from our school dorm in Welthauptstadt Germania, what was once called Berlin. I can see the incredible hundred-meter high Triumphal Arc in the distance, and the Avenue of Splendor with the great dome of the People’s Hall designed by the Fuhrer himself.
Despite the fact that our great Führer sent three missives to British leader Winston Churchill offering peace, Churchill refused. Germany had no option but to invade Britain. Hitler issued Fuhrer Directive No. 16 ordering the invasion to commence on October 12, 1940. The Führer stated: “As England, in spite of her hopeless military situation, still shows no signs of willingness to come to terms, I have decided to prepare, and to carry out, a landing operation against her. The aim of this operation is to eliminate the English Motherland as a base from which the war against Germany can be continued, and, if necessary, to occupy the country completely.”
Operation Sea Lion was a tremendous success. The invasion force was organized into two army groups drawn from the 6th, 9th and 16th Army. The first wave of the landing consisted of eleven infantry and mountain divisions, the second wave of eight panzer and motorized infantry divisions, and the third wave was formed of six additional infantry divisions. The initial assault also included two airborne divisions and the special forces of the Brandenburg Regiment SS.
On a side note, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini offered ten divisions and thirty squadrons of Italian aircraft for the invasion. The Führer initially declined any such aid but eventually allowed a small contingent of Italian fighters and bombers, the Italian Air Corps (Corpo Aero Italiano or CAI), to assist in the Luftwaffe's aerial campaign over Britain.
Although Reichs Marschall Goring took the lion’s share of credit for the overall success, (he did keep the British Air Force at bay until their airfields were taken by our paratroopers) the real heroes of the conquest of Britain was Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt and Grand Admiral Carl Donitz. Admiral Donitz and the fleet suffered great losses from the British Navy in order to make the landing successful.
Joachim von Ribbentrop was appointed to the new office of Reichskommissar für Großbritannien (Reich Commissar for Great Britain). He immediately directed all able-bodied males between the ages of 17 and 45 to be interned and dispatched to the Continent. This represented about 25% of male citizens. The UK was then plundered for anything of financial, military, industrial or cultural value and the remaining population controlled. Civilian hostages were taken, and the death penalty immediately imposed for even the most trivial acts of resistance. The deported male population was used as industrial slave labor in areas of the Reich in the factories and mines, unless they took an oath to the Reich.
Operation Barbarossa was launched against Russia the following spring, In May, 1941. Our German forces destroyed 28 Russian divisions in just three weeks and more than 70 divisions lost 50% or more of their men and equipment. Our allies the Japanese fought the Russians on the Manchurian-Mongolian frontier, tying up many Soviet divisions and preventing Stalin from reinforcing the western front. The fate of the Soviet Union was sealed. Stalin surrendered unconditionally on September 22, 1941 and was summarily executed for crimes against humanity.
Our Japanese allies attacked Hong Kong from 8 to 25 December 1941, also known as the Defense and the Fall of Hong Kong. Within a week the defenders abandoned the mainland, and less than two weeks later, with their position on the island untenable, the colony surrendered.
The Japanese then blockaded Australia and by occupying New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and the New Caledonia-Figi Islands and Australia was forced to surrender. India surrendered a few weeks later. The British Empire ceased to exist.
Barring any direct attack against the Philippines or of any U.S. possessions, the United States continued to maintain a strictly defensive posture against Japan and Germany. The British government in exile in Canada could do nothing without U.S. aid.
By the end of 1941, the Fatherland and Japan ruled the World. Of course Italy was accepted as an equal partner, at least in theory but, like all Axis countries, was forced to accept German as their official language. After consolidating our gains, by 1944, we had an uneasy peace with the Western Hemisphere. Most of the South and Central American countries joined the Axis Pact and accepted rule by the Nazi Party. Mexico was thrown into civil war, one side wanting to join the Nazis, the other to ally with the United States and Canada.
In early 1945, Japan demanded half of Russia and all of India as part of their expanding empire, along with the American possessions in Hawaii, Guam and the Philippines. America flatly refused. In the intervening years, the United States had maximized its awesome industrial capacity, (something the Fuhrer warned us against) building the largest Navy Fleet in the world and equaling the Fatherland in her technology and production output. In a surprising move, the Fuhrer sided with the Americans and declared war on the Japanese Empire.
The war raged for three brutal years, but there was no doubt about the outcome. The Japanese Empire was totally crushed. After the Fuhrer dropped our new atomic bomb on Tokyo and four other Japanese cities, they had no choice but to surrender. Unknown to our intelligence personnel, America also developed the atomic bomb so it became a standoff between the Americans and the Fatherland. America took possession of Australia and reinstated the British government there, along with the main island chains and the Philippines. The remainder of Asia, including the Middle East, all of China, Korea, and Japan, was absorbed by the Fatherland.
It has now been sixty-five years since the German/American cold war began. There have been a few tense moments; the greatest in 1955 when we almost stumbled into an atomic war. We were supplying Southern Mexico with intercontinental missiles and the Americans blockaded the coast. Luckily, our new Fuhrer, war hero Erwin Rommel, negotiated a truce with President George Patton, another aging warrior.
Events have been relatively peaceful since that time, leaving the Reich to expand its full potential. With the incredible resources available to us, we have completely eliminated hunger and poverty. Our space program has landed men on the moon and we are heading for the planet Mars in a few years. We have created a wonderful civilization and our empire is the envy of the world and will last for thousands of years.
We also won the war of the final solution. There are no more Jews, very few Orientals, and the only Negroes are the ones left in America or her satellite countries. Africa was cleansed to make way for Arian expansion. Any person with a trace of Negro, Oriental, or the lesser breeds, is sent to the crematoriums which, as you can see in the picture, continue to pour forth dense smoke from their busy smokestacks. Ironically, the Japanese helped to eliminate the Chinese and Koreans, saving us the effort. The lesser breeds of Caucasian humanity are used for manual and slave labor, freeing us, the master race, to expand our full potential in science, the arts, and industry. Religion is strictly banned and, as the Muslims discovered, punishable by immediate death.
The Fatherland has millions of miles of land upon which to peacefully expand, while the Americans and their sub human allies are bogged down in their teeming ghettos with billions of the inferior races to feed and shelter, facing major race riots, religious fanaticism, and social decadence.
We are aware that eventually we will have to fight the arrogant Americans; however, there can be only one possible outcome, German control of the entire world, a day we Hitler Youth look forward to.
