We'll Protect America!: Kaiserreich-USA AAR

We'll Protect America!: USA AAR


http://img408.imageshack.us/my.php?image=screensave0.png


The twentieth century has not been kind to the land of the free. While it has been a century of peace and isolation for the United States, events in the rest of the world could not help but effect it. President Wilson almost joined the Great War to make the world safe for democracy, German policy changes ruined his chance. The collapse of France led to an over-reliance on trade with Britain which led to depression when revolution struck merry old England. The crash of the New York stock exchange in '29 ended what little hope the U.S. had of maintaing some economic independance and thus the U.S. found it's economy dominated by Berlin. But cracks are all ready starting to appear in the mighty German Empire and if the Berlin Stock Market crashes it would take down the rest of the world with it, and this could spell disaster for the increasingly Dis-United States...

The Begining of the End

This new year was already looking bleak all over the world. The Berlin Stock Market crashed with the effects quickly being felt in America, The Battle of the Overpass was one of the first visible signs of workers becoming increasingly violent, when a group of protesters calling for "Unionism not Fordism" were attacked by forty men from Fords service department and the violence was all caught on film. President Hoover is said to have remarked "this will hurt us more than it will hurt the unionists", but Ford remained unrepetent declaring "This is America, the greatest nation on Earth, and we shall never allow these Syndicalist scum bags one inch!"

The Pueblo Commune which rose only days later proved a difficult group to dislodge, Major General DeWitt US Cavaly declared "We can't move 'em, give me twice as many men, maybe otherwise no chance". The President was desperatley seeking a negotioted settlement. Jack Reed head of America lefist party had this to say "They are not mine, but they are showing true proletarion spirit! If the fat cats don't learn to treat the worker with respect there will only be more of these".

Pope Pius XI demanded that the U.S. government shut down the 'radio priest' Father Charles Coughlin, Hoover fearing Coughlin's popularity decided to ban him from the air waves and confisicate all radio appartus. This blatant disregard for the first amendment would not go over well...

The whole world seemed to be going mad, Hispaniola had descended into war as the Domincan Army crossed the Haitian border as a result of Haitian demands in response to the Parsley Massacre. The U.S. despite calling for peace and reason, failed too accomplish anything as they were to concerned about their own troubles to meddle once more in Hispaniola.

To the south, Marshall Arango seized the Palacio des los Pina upon the death of Zapata prompting the United Provinces to seek an aliance with Panama, and Hoover to quietly begin mobilising along the Mexican border.

In a desperate effort to gain more support in the North West an Indian Citizenship Bill was forced through, however it proved unpopular in the "Nation within a nation" of California...

sign up to a website like photobucket or imageshack. Upload your screenshots and then you get a sort of code thing that you put into your posts to show images. ;)

...Press printscreen and then paste them on paint, photoshop, whatever you use. Alternatively you could use F11 saves the pics ingame and the game saves them in your HoI folder. Althrough sometimes it doesn't work and the images are saved in .bmp format, which takes way too much space to actually post them on the internet. Then you would have to change them to something smaller, like GIF or jpg. :)

I do but it doesn't seem to do anything. It'll probably turn out to be some stupid mistake of mine before too long. Thanks for the help everyone!

A Modern Day Benjamin Franklin

Jack Reed, the new leader of the Combined Syndicates of America has begun to recieve full support from a number of nations such as the Union of Britain, the Commune of France and the Peoples Republic of Mexico. This support which included not only funds but also substantial amounts of modern military equipment, was being smuggled in over the borders especially the lightly gaurded Mexican border was cause for alarm for many in the United States. It was used by the media to paint the CSA as a group of violent terrorists who did not believe in American Values such as democracy. However the government could not pin Reed or the CSA leadership, as being involved. Hoover had no idea how to handle it which lead to the public becoming increasing dissillusioned by the mainstream parties which caused many people to turn to Huey Long and his American Union Party to find an answer to America's problems.

Temporarily allowing the citizens of the strife filled city of Detroit to forget their troubles the Detroit Red Wings, beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2 bringing the Stanley Cup back to hockey-town. While there were still riots as had become normal in Detroit for once the riots were not because of politcal differences but because of the championship.

A Day In September

The social and political consensus in American Society has broken down, and the current Presidential Election Campaign is like nothing we have ever seen. The America First-Union Party is organising right-wing militias in the South and Mid-West and communists control the streets of Chicago and Detroit. Senior military leaders believe that it may be nesescary to suspend the consitituon and postpone the election if America is to avoid compleat social collapse. In the end President Herbert Hoover declared "I will not save America by destroying it's soul, the elections will go ahead!"

The results are finally in for what has to be the most idealogically contested election in American history, in the end Huey Long of the America First Union Party was elected to power, as the CSA had been tarred by the accusations of being foriegn puppets while the Democrats and Republicans were successfully blamed as the reason for America's current troubles.

The Begining of the End

Jack Reed of the CSA contested the election results stating "the American people have been duped by a tyranical group of wealthy bankers and feudal lords, who have subverted the electoral process to bring a man who want's to bring slavery back, a regressive reactionary monster, it was no accident that Henry Ford was giving such an important place in the new cabiniet! We will never accept Huey Long or his illegal cabal and will take to the streets if we must!"

Herbert Hoover was vocal after the election and he openly critisized Long and the America First as a dangerous choice for the country, and encouraged the Democrats and Republicans to form an alliance to keep Long in check. President nominee Long responded simply "He doesn't matter anymore".

Rioting erupted in many major cities, in most areas the local police were able to hold onto control in Raliegh however the black mob succeeded in defeating the police forcing Hoover to order in the troops to "clear them out".

In protest of the election results the CSA has launched a New Years Day Strike which has crippled the industries of the north. Councils of Trade Unions were organised to run the cities during the strike. The Lame Duck President however could do little and the people simply hoped that when Long was sworn in he would be able to restore order.

Major General Stilwel's Indianhead division smashed the disorganised rebel forces in the short Battle of Richmond, and began to march to Raliegh to mop up the remains of their forces. No prisoners were taken. Stilwell told the press "they all thought that 'the Lord' would protect them, from my guns and bombs, as the Russians are finding out now mumbo jumbo doesn't win any battles".

A serious revolt was occuring the the north west, a group billing themselves as the Northwest Seccesionist Force occupied large parts of Oregon and the Rocky Mountains, billed as mere bandits by the President, they helped to demonstrate how seriously the Army was overstreched. Major General Collins J.L. chased after them but like Pershing hunting Santa Anna never did seem to catch up.

There was a ray of hope for the world when Haiti and the Domincan Republic finally reached a peace on January 16, Hoover declared "Hispaniola is an example for all to follow".

A New American Vision

A New American Vision

On January 19 after winning the election President Long addressed the nation. He openly attacked the Syndicalists and the Socialists for ruining the economy, and betraying the American people with the lies of better conditions, masking an attempt to create a dictatorship of the Unions.

As Charles Coughlin was released from prison after recieving a full pardon from the new President, he addressed a largely supportive crowd "The Bill of Rights is there for a reason the constitution exists for a reason! The people can not allow Jewish plots to take away their God-Given freedoms!" Coughlin was made Foreign Secretary of the United States within a week of his return to liberty.

One of Longs first actions was to establish a paramilitary organisation to deal with issues involving disruptive trade unions and other socialist rabble rousers. He called this group the Minute Men. After the group of American patriots who would be able to respond to any threats to American in two minutes


In the spring of 1937, with the country still in economic chaos Long launched a series of reforms to bring the economy and industry under stricter political and corporate control, Long decided to initiate aggressive reforms to insure large state control over the economy, the reaction of the Unions was not going to be pretty...

Reed and the trade unions had for several months, crippled the nations industry in the north. Hoover was unable to break the unions and Long despised him for it. The new President would not tolerate Reed and the CSA disrupting American industry. Long had three choices, he could send a bill to congress to make the CSA illegal, he could break them the old fashioned way by sending in the Minute Men, or he could declare the CSA illegal and arrest Reed. The question was not if he would break the unions but how...
