The Rise of Sweden - a fascist AAR
After a half year break I will now continue my AAR on fascist Sweden. Sadly I had to format my computer so the game is gone. On the upper hand I didnt really play that long so I will continue on the AAR anyway. I will be playing 1.06 c core 0.84pe. So enjoy folks and behold the might of the nordic empire.
Fifteenth of october 1935, the swedish prime minister, Per Albin Hansson is holding a speech in the riksdag. Gathered to listen is the members of the riksdag, some journalists and seven students of politics. Per Albin has been going on for about half an hour and the audience is getting a little sleepy. The journalists is regretting going there and the politics students wonders what this man is getting to.
Into the riksdag, in a singleline is twelve persons coming. All is wearing black coats. They line in a halfcircle into the back of the riksdag. Per Albin, a little surprised of the awkward behavior pauses for a second then continues. Forward from the group a man is coming. He bursts his coat open and pulls out a gun. With a loud voice he says:
”Too long has your corrupt communist politics ruined our nation. Were taking power!”
A single bullet hits Per Albin in the forehead and he crushes down into the floor. The rest of the coat-dressed group uncover their coats, machineguns in hands.
”Spare the journalits, slay the rest!”
In an inferno of bullets and blood the audience gets massacred. The person who seems to be the leader makes his way thru the corpses up to the center of the room. Pushing away the body of late Per Albin he rises and adresses the journalists and his comrades.
”People of Sweden, I Erik Hjelm, leader of the National Swedish Fascist Party am sieging power. As I speak, people in my organisation is taking control of keystructures around the country. We are many and we are determinated. We will free you from the foul communist government that have destroyed our country. As Gustav Vasa once did, so do I today, liberating Sweden from oppressers. Then it was the danes, now it is the deceiving power of democracy. This is a well prepared operation, resistance will be futile. A restructure of the militarycommand is going on leaving to me the power of the military. I advice to you, to stay in your homes while we clear out the last pieces of socialist rubbish that poisons this state.
Too long have we been a nation of decadence, the time has come for us to rise! We, once glorious shall that be again! Our enemies will tremble of the mention of our name. Our deeds will be heard of centuries from now. Our great nation will show the world that nobody, and I say nobody steps on Sweden! We will show the world that we are a nation second to none! Today, is a milestone in history, today is the day when Sweden no longer will be slaves. Today we mark our future, today is a day for vengence, we demand retaliation for former humiliations. We will come and we will conquer, noone will oppose the swedes! People of Sweden, I salute you.”
A time of terror hits the country. In every city and town deathsquads hunts down socialistsleaders, unionleaders, members of the communistparty. Militaryofficers are shot in hundreds, replaced my members of the fascistparty. All military regiments have under long time been infiltrated by the fascists making taking control easy. Those of the military that do oppose the new leadership are scatterd and unorganiced making defeat of them easy for the wellorganized fascists.
The policecore try on many occasions to stop the fascists but are then shot upon sight. Fascistloyal soldiers is patroling the streets, upholding order.
When the first wave of killings are to an end, it is followed by a time of persecution. Enemies of the state are rallied up put into camps deep into the forest. Never heard of more.
Industry leaders, goverment administrators, local politicians are either removed or threatend into obedience.
The people of Sweden stand helpless to the new order. The fascists have swift taken power and is determinated to use it.
This is the political situation of Sweden in january 1936.
