    Let's hope that the chunk of wood was burnt too, along with uncle Heini...

    He finally got a Viking funeral, you see

    He did get his Viking funeral; its what all good National Socialists want right? The "Eastern Front" question will be addressed here hopefully soon. Just confirmed in the "details document" that on August 11th, some news from the Eastern Front will be received (that may take awhile to get - who knows).

    There no bullet in Himmler's head.

    I closed my eyes after writing close to 7,300 words over the past 9 days; which averages to 811.1 words a day. I am concerned that the thirst for "Nightmare" cannot be contained for long. I will have to double down my efforts. Until then, I must rest. I must rest!

    Alptraum
    An Alternative History Affair
    By TekcoR


    Between the Sea and a Panzer


    Rhiley and I had walked to my headquarters six miles down the road from the scene of Himmler’s death. I had the urge to immediately fall asleep and move on from the events of the day. However, I felt it necessary to attend to the events of the day. A few reports had stacked on my desk while I was away. I kept thinking to myself that there should be more after action reports – the event with Himmler had felt like it had lasted at least a week – but in reality barely an hour had passed since he entered the Kübelwagen and was burned to ashes. Another hour had passed from Rhiley and I returning to my headquarters after the encounter with Colonel Tychsen.

    While the leader of the Waffen Schutzstaffel was being dealt with for his crimes against the nation; thousands of his men supported by the Heer had recently captured the city of Dax, a medium-sized town in southwest France. The capture of Dax signaled panic within the Allies armies occupying Bordeaux, as our forces were within mere kilometers of reaching the Atlantic from Dax, and encircling what our intelligence estimated to be two to two dozen and a half divisions of America, British and Spanish troops. I received numerous reports that our hold on Dax was pathetic at best, and reinforcements were needed immediately.

    Mustering reinforcements was a difficult task. Our forces are stretched thin all across the Reich. Under optimal conditions, we could potentially muster enough forces to launch offensives as they were precise in scope – and if the offensive was faltering to immediately call it off. The decision to reassign the 1 SS Panzerarmee under the command of the late Paul Hausser was a gamble – as a significant decrease of divisions from the Eastern Front; which the Russians had luckily to this point not yet detected.

    Sensing the urgency in the request for reinforcements, I scrambled what reinforcements I could come upon. The quality of these soldiers was, poor, not because of their spirit but because of the failings of a regime not able to comprehend the dire situation we face. The equipment most of our soldiers received while superb by quality was sub-standard by numbers

    Through coercion – threats of court martial – and pleas for patriotism for the Fatherland, the reinforcements had been promised and sent on their way towards Dax after seven hours of work on my part. The arrival of reinforcements could not have been more welcome than anything else. On the last hours of July 8th, Allies forces had recaptured the city of Dax – which appeared to be a major blow to our offensive. However, they had not expected the arrival of reinforcements of two and a half divisions that proceeded without mercy to launch a counterattack. The attack drove the Allies reeling from the city and back in retreat towards Bordeaux.

    By the end of July 9th, not only was the city of Dax firmly in our control, the Atlantic had been reached. The Allies only immediate hope of withdrawal from their encirclement around Bordeaux was a Dunkirk style maneuver. Barring another Dunkirk – which was highly unlikely due to several various reasons – it was expected that the Allies would be forced to surrender their invading force within at least a fortnight. I had been privileged to receive a memorandum from Admiral Donitz stating what submarines were available on the Atlantic were actively patrolling the approaches to Bordeaux and that any Allied attempt to rescue the stranded force would be met with heavy losses. In addition, in a rare moment of cooperation, Goring pledged the entire support of the Luftwaffe; which had been recently turning the tide of the war with the jet fighter known as the Me 262.

    All that was left now was bringing an end to the pocket of Allied soldiers in southern France; a task that would be easier said than done.

    Send in a few E-50s

    Would it be possible for the Allies to gather a huge Armada and try and evacuate? Something like D-Day, especially as the Americans have joined the fight?

    I'm wondering if people would like to come up with a few questions they would like answered either in the story or out of the story. Any kind of question is okay.

    What is the situation in Africa at the moment? And Britian as well? Is there a plan to cross the channel, with the Luftwaffe working hard?

    Sounds like Dax is quite the battleground. Very exciting! Things like this are why later scenarios are sometimes so much more fun than the 1936 one.

    I am curious what kind of shape the Kriegsmarine is in. Does it have enough strength to eventually attempt an attack on Britain?

    Alptraum
    An Alternative History Affair
    By TekcoR


    Lettering the Situation


    To: Generalmajor Tristan Schnack,
    Addressing the Concerns over the Fronts
    August 9th, 1944

    The Eastern Front

    Since our last major offensive in 1943, that temporarily brought relief to the city of Konigsberg, the front has remained static. There have been minor exceptions of localized offensives and counteroffensives; however because of a relative balance of power no major changes have occurred since our retreat from Konigsberg back to Danzig. The Führer insists on launching a sweeping general offensive across the entire front. He has issued a directive stating that all historically Germanic land – notably lands of Austria, East Prussia and parts of Germanic Poland are to be liberated at once without regard for causalities. The Führer’s orders are not followed outside the bunker; I countermanded every order that escapes. Even the most fanatical officers and enlisted soldiers within the Waffen Schutzstaffel have lost their dedication to the man. I recently visited two of the divisions stationed here on the front, there demeanor seems calmer, almost muted. Upon my return I received the explanation of their unfamiliar behavior – the Reichsführer had died.

    I am not sure if you are aware of the full situation of on this front – it is precarious. The newsworthy combat that occurs is located to two sectors of the front – the Prussian and Polish areas of operations. The areas of Bohemia-Moravia and Austria remain relatively quiet due to the extensive amount of fortifications and difficult terrain – the Eastern and Central Eastern Alps. This area of operation proves a nightmare for the Soviets, having lost a few divisions to attrition according to captured prisoners. The Soviets are also dealing with the crack 8 Armee that consisting of 25 mountain infantry divisions that we well equipped to handle any situation.

    The rest of the eastern front is armed to the teeth with a mountain of the Heer. On the entire front, there are 160 infantry divisions, supported by 20 mechanized / motorized infantry divisions and 15 panzer divisions. Our total number of divisions on the front is 220; which is dwarfed by the Soviets estimated strength of 380. It is a miracle that we are capable of holding back the Bear. Through a combination of our tenacity, fortifications, and favorable interior lines, we have held this long and many continue to hold as long as certain situations are addressed.

    These attributes that we favor are no supplement for raw manpower. It is no secret to the Allies that as time progresses the Third Reich grows weaker. We do not have enough real divisions to counter the threat posed in a two front war. Again our division number of the Eastern Front is 220, the Führer constantly informs me of divisions I have never heard about. I estimated the Führer to think we have about 300 divisions in Berlin alone. Speaking of the capital, I recently shared a meal with your son Sebastian. He is a fine young man and officer of the Army, and adept at panzer tactics. I am confident you are proud of what he has become.

    Returning to the situation, we cannot hope to maintain this balance of power on the front for long. Yet, I do not estimate we shall witness a Soviet offensive until at the earliest till March 1945. Seven months have passed into 1944 without a murmur of a concentrated gathering of Soviet armies. While our partisan activity has been small, it has not been ineffective. I receive reports of our partisans putting aside their differences with their Polish neighbors and resisting the communist puppet governments that have been setup in the occupied regions. Hitler is not kept aware of the cooperation.

    The Western Front

    That is my report on the Eastern Front. I know that Rommel and you are more of the experts on the Western Front. However, I would like to express my concerns over the situation and make recommendations. I am deeply worried about this front for a multitude of reasons. The western front has withdrawn and will continue to withdraw vital troops from other theaters of operations – most notably the Eastern Front. By redeploying troops from the Eastern Front, the very delicate balance of power that has been established shifts ever closer to Soviet favoritism. The continual withdrawal of troops from the East to satisfy the Western dilemma cannot continue beyond the end of this year.

    Because of the dilemma caused by Franco’s betrayal – I am making these recommendations. France must be abandoned. We do not have the forces necessary to continue to man the Western front effectively. The current situation caused by Franco necessitates an invasion of Spain; which will further extend the already teetering of ruin supply system we have established; thus ruling out subduing Spanish treachery. Which brings me to the point I earlier made; France must be abandoned.

    Abandoning France is logical. Firstly, this will shorten our supply line. Secondly, this allows us to concentrate our troops and deal more effective blows to the enemies on both fronts. Thirdly, our enemies in the Western Front will now have to face extended supply lines and faced increased difficulty from fighting closer to the Fatherland. To be fair, I must point out the consequences of withdrawing from France. The likelihood of occupying France again is unlikely. France has provided a good percent of war material that has allowed us to remain in the situation we find ourselves currently facing.

    Tristan, these are just my thoughts. I would appreciate if you could find time to return to Berlin for further discussion with Julius Ringel and myself. The future of the Third Reich needs further discussion before a final decision can be made. It is important that we explore all options before agreeing upon what is the best. Until then,

    Generalfeldmarschall Heinz Guderian
    Oberkommando der Wehrmacht
    Berlin, Germany

    The loss of France huh? It is still looking very grim indeed.

    I like how the story of Tristan has overshadowed the rest of the war. I had forgotten the perilous situation Germany was in. Good update, it brought it all back

    Jesus you read quickly!

    Tristan has overshadowed the war; which is kind of one of his faults - however I think any soldier on the front really only cares about the front they are on not the rest of the war. Right now, there are a few choices. Guderian is really bringing about the "reality" of the hopelessness that Germany faces. I'm not sure if France will be fully abandoned or not. I have a save until the end of 1945 (another beyond), that I'm not sure what I will be pursuing.

    I do have an idea of how far I want to get before I'm gone for a few months. I'll see how close I get to completing that.
