August 12th, 1936. A new political party gains new momentum within the Reichstag. The name of this party is called. "Volkspartei der Republik", or the "People's Party of the Republic".
Many National Socialists were concerned about the rise of the party and how much support and momentum it was gaining. They brought this up with Hitler, who shook it off saying "It is a healthy way for the Fatherland's citizens to debate on relevant topics. Leave them be."
By September 1936, Republik officials have gained seats in Hitler's cabinet. One of these officials was Arvid Deutschen Freundmann. Arvid, being a former veteran of the First World War, became the head of the fledgling German army, the Wehrmacht.
By then, Hitler soon became weary of the "Republikaners". On October 27th, 1936, he ordered the assassination of Heer General Freundmann. To Hitler's surprise, Arvid survived. News of the attempt on the general's life spread through Germany like wildfire. Outraged pro-Republikaner supporters flocked to the Reichstag.
On November 12th , 1936, the Republik party declared a "Separation of the German States". This divided Germany into two halves. The western half became the United Republic States of Germany, and the eastern half became the Federal Socialist (Nazi) States of Germany.
The West wasted no time in developing their new country. A new capital was decided, which was a small village along the Rhine called Rhinesburg. The government was set up as a Republic. The new German Constitution was drafted, based on the United State's own Constitution. This caught the attention of the U.S, which wasted no time in developing relations with the German Republic.
A new president was elected, and that man was Arvid Deutschen Freundmann. Immediately the German Republik set out to revoke the Treaty of Versailles' rules for the Republik. With support from the U.S., the Republic gained new land, military supplies, and funding, which stabilized the Republik's economy.
By 1937, Republik businesses were common and gained plenty of income, which allowed the government to increase spending on the Wehrmacht, which was brought into the Republik when it seceded from Socialist Germany. This started an arms race with East Germany, which started to build up the Waffen SS as their primary military force.
In 1938, the East German government declared war on the Republik on May 26th.
The first few days of the war consisted of minor skirmishes along the Middle Front, which was the border of the Republik and the East.
On June 5th, 1938, the East launched a massive invasion, pushing Republik soldiers westwards, and expanded Eastern territory. The East was able to push the West back easily, since they had a larger and more well trained military force. The East supplied their soldiers with MP38 sub machine guns, MG38 machine guns, and Karabiner 98k rifles. The West, while having a particularly large army, lacked weaponry, and so troops were supplied with old MP18 SMGs, foreign Lee-Enfield rifles, and rackety old Lewis guns.
The United States, fearing for the loss of its new ally, supplied the West with superior American weaponry and vehicles. This act of trade between the West and the U.S. finally broke the U.S. out of the Great Depression, since the Republik purchased millions of dollars in weaponry and supplies.
By late summer of 1938, the Republik was soon able to defend against Nazi assaults. Western soldiers were armed with M1 Garand rifles, M1928/M1 Thompsons, Mauser C96 pistols, and Browning and Winchester shotguns.
Despite the upgrades to the Western armories, the West was still losing ground. The West needed new rifles that packed a similar punch as the Garand, but with a larger capacity and a different loading system. Many companies such as Walther and Mauser West, and the newly created Schmeisser Armories began working on new weapon designs.
On August 29th, 1938, Walther presented the Republik military with two new pistols, which were designed before the Republik military's decree of the need for a new rifle. These pistols were the Walther P38 9mm, and Walther's own take on the C96, the W37.
Both the P38 and W37 revolutionized modern pistols. The W37 especially. The W37 took the designs of the P38 and the C96 and blended them together, effectively fixing the flaws of the C96 while improving on its other features.
The Wehrmacht immediately accepted the pistols into service, mostly due to the fact both pistols were cheap to produce and used common ammunition.
On September 15th, 1938, the Republic launched a massive counteroffensive to reclaim the Trüsselöph Train Yards, a large train yard with plenty of railroads and trains for the transport of supplies and troops.
After a week's worth of fighting, the Republik pushed the East out of Trüsselöph, marking the first battle in which the Republik won, and pushed the East out of Republik lands.
On September 21st, 1938, Volkswagen West presented the Wehrmacht with a new tank design, which was stemmed off of the Eastern Tiger I, and U.S. M3 Sherman. This design was coined the Wolfsjunge, or "Wolf's Cub", The tank was as sturdy and reliable as the Tiger, yet easily manufactured like the Sherman.
This new tank became the first tank to be used by the Republik. The Wolfsjunge I turned the tides of many battled in favor for the Republik, and by summer 1939, the Republik gained back almost 86% of the land lost to the East.
On September 3rd, 1939, World War Two had begun when the East invaded Belgium through controlled lands in the North-West. The East moved in this way in order to execute the Schleiffen Plan, but not only to defeat France, but also to defeat the West.
The Invasion of Belgium drew France and Britain into the German civil war. Britain decided to supply the Republik with supplies, in order to keep Eastern expansion at bay, or slow it down.
For the next five months, the Middle Front, the border between the West and the East remained silent, since the East was focusing on invading France and the Middle East. This gave the west time to prepare.
On February 26th, 1940, the fledgling Schmeisser Arms Company presented the Wehrmacht with their solution to their demands for a new rifle. Their solution was the S40, or the Schmeisser (19)40.
The S40 improved upon the old Fedorov rifle design, and used elements from Eastern blueprints of a 7.62 "Kurz" auto rifle. The result ended with a 7.63x25 auto rifle, bridging the gap between light machine gun and sub machine gun.
The Wehrmacht immediately tested it, and then accepted the rifle as their first standard rifle. President Arvid, who attended the trials, coined it the " Kampfsgewehr", or "Battle rifle".
The new battle/assault rifle was immediately used for the first time in the Battle for Switzerland, and changed the tides of the war in favor of the Republik.
The Battle for Switzerland occurred on April 2nd, 1940. The Western command had decrypted an Eastern message about an invasion of Switzerland. The Western command responded by invading Switzerland in pursuit of the Eastern SS brigade.
The two forces met outside a Swiss town, where the West defeated the Waffen SS, and pushed the East out of Switzerland. After the Western victory, the Swiss government developed an alliance with West Germany, pulling Switzerland into the World War .
The Vaduz-Munich Treaty, the official alliance between the German Republik and Switzerland. The terms of the treaty stated that Switzerland would fund the under-developed Republik Wehrmacht, in exchange for protection of Switzerland's borders along Austria and Italy.
The Vaduz-Munich Treaty benefited both nations well. The Republik received adequate funding for weaponry , supplies, vehicles, and most importantly: clothing. Switzerland, in return, was defended against several invasions attempted by Nazi Germany the following months after the Treaty.
On Christmas of. 1940, the East launched a massive invasion of Republic territory along the northern coastline, capturing parts of northern West Germany and Denmark. The massive Eastern invasion roused concerns over a potential invasion of Great Britain.
On January 1st, 1941, Nazi Germany launched the Invasion of Britain. The surprise attack on Britain crippled its troops, especially the RAF.
The Republik, despite the loss of territory, saw this as a chance to develop its own naval force. The Republik's plan was to send in a special operations team to capture moored Nazi naval vessels in occupied Denmark.
To do this task, the West developed the Nachtkräfte, the Republik's new special operations militia. The Nächtkräfte's General was elected to be Kommandat Bergmann Freundmann of the Third Storm Division of the Wehrmacht. The Third Storm division was pulled from the Wehrmacht, and incorporated into the Nächtkräfte.
On January 27th, the Nächtkräfte was deployed in occupied Denmark. The Nächtkräfte managed to assume control of 9 Nazi vessels, including the infamous battleship Bismarck, while sparing three other vessels that contained supposed Nazi POW's.
The Eastern government was furious about the West's capture of the nine Kreigsmarine vessels. On February 9th, Adolf Hitler spoke on public radio about "increased war efforts towards the vile West". Over one half of the SS troops in the Western front were pulled into the Middle front.
The East began executing Western POWs, excluding several Republik officers that were essential for the East's war intelligence.
During the summer of 1941, the Nächtkräfte was sent on a mission to capture an Eastern Panzer factory in Poland. Instead of finding the factory, the Nächtkräfte discovered the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. Upon the discovery, the Nächtkräfte liberated the camp, and executed hundreds of SS officers, troops and scientists, excluding several scientists that were essential to the Republik's war effort and technology industry, one of which was Dr. Josef Mengele.
After the Nächtkräfte's liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, thousands of prisoners were evacuated into Western territory, where they would recover and live in safety. This sparked the Republik government to execute Operation Freiheit, an operation solely for the Nächtkräfte to liberate the numerous concentration camps in occupied territory .
