EARLY YEARS: Adolf Hitler, a megalomaniacal and charismatic leader, usurped
control of Germany with the help of his Brown Shirt paramilitary goons (officially called
Sturmabteilung or "SA"). He received early financial
support from British socialist Roundtable members and
turned a failed Weimar Republic into a fascist totalitarian state. Former World War I general,
Paul von Hindenburg, appointed Hitler as
Chancellor of Germany on 30 January 1933 and Hitler became dictator on 2 August 1934 AD. A national referendum
on 19 August 1934 confirmed him to be the sole Führer (leader).
Nazis initially improved living conditions and economic stability through military spending and
public works, such as an extensive autobahn (highway) network. The party encouraged racism and anti-Semitism,
foolishly claiming Germanic Aryans to be a master race. Eventually, the regime instituted
mass extermination of communists, gypsies, Jews
and other undesired or opposition groups.
In 1938 AD, German troops moved into Austria.
Hitler claimed the German-speaking Sudetenland region of
Czechoslovakia the following year (and later seized the whole country
in March 1939 AD). British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain,
bowed to Hitler and claimed to have achieved "peace for our time." His cowardice encouraged further Nazi expansionism.
On 1 September 1939 AD, Hitler and Joseph Stalin of the
Soviet Union invaded and partitioned
Poland per a secret agreement, which also granted the Baltic States
to the Soviets. Prior to the invasion, Britain promised to aid Poland.
On 22 June 1941 AD, Hitler launched Operation Barbarossa,
a full-scale invasion of the Soviet Union. Initially, German
troops occupied Baltic states and the regions of modern Belarus
and Ukraine. The advance stalled at
Moscow and Leningrad, which
Hitler ordered destroyed and all people massacred. Soviet troops suffered huge losses, in part due to
Stalin's purge of experienced officers. German forces finally withdrew
after suffering defeats at Kursk and Stalingrad.
Massive infusion of American material and weaponry aided the Soviet
defense and counter-offense.
COLLAPSE OF NAZIS:
American economic and military aid turned the tide against the Nazis. Allied bombers
also destroyed many German cities. On 20 July 1944, Hitler survived an assassination attempt and ordered the
execution of nearly 5,000 people, including the forced suicide of Field Marshal Rommel. During the
Battle of Berlin, Hitler reportedly committed suicide in
his bunker. Reliable sources later posited that he escaped to Paraguay.
Surviving Nazi commanders surrendered or escaped to South American nations, particularly
Uruguay. Unfortunately after the war, corrupt American officials and
internationalists brought many Nazi scientists under Operation Paperclip to work on secret projects in the United States.
Reportedly, many U-boats
harbored in Norway
transported Hitler and Nazi personnel from Europe to a base in New Swabia,
that Hitler ordered built in 1938-1939 AD. During operation High Jump in 1947 AD, German UFOs
soundly defeated a task force under Admirals Richard Byrd
and Chester Nimitz.
