In 1939, Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union signed a non-aggression pact and agreed to divide Poland. World War II begins in September and by mid-1940, most of continental Europe was under the German jackboot. Operation Sea Lion begins and Britain falls after two years of fighting. Hitler then plans to invade the Soviet Union, but his advisers persuade him to invade the United States instead, spending two years planning the invasion.
On July 15, 1944, Manhattan is invaded by a massive armada of German U-boats and newly built aircraft carriers. Overnight, the island is under the Nazi jackboot and is used as one of the launching pads for the invasion.
In 1956, the German presence in North America is stronger than ever. The Jewish people have been almost completely exterminated and African-Americans have either been deported to Africa or killed in extermination camps in the states of Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Other smaller camps exist near every state capital. The Nazi government also changed the basics of the American government. The President was now called ARR (American territory Reich Representative) and the states transformed into different Legislative Territories. Of course, the German government also created a strong recruitment campaign for the Reich's Army, with posters and radio and TV ads.
